“Better View, Part II,” from Switch, is out now (courtesy of Sony Music/Provident's Essential Worship). Leading up to its anticipated release, the group dropped singles "Covered" and "Letting Go" earlier this year accompanied by lyric videos.
“This project is special to me because, during the times when I felt the most doubt or had the biggest questions, I felt too ashamed to ask them,” said Luke Guevara from Switch. “My prayer is that these songs create a space for wrestling with doubt, acknowledging uncertainty, and embracing the journey of faith.”
“Part II” of the “Better View” project follows the fall 2021 release of the first part. This project, Switch’s team said, “brings a Top 40 sound with a ’90s influence, bridging the gap between pop music and Christian lyrics. As with ‘Better View, Part I,’ the release and theme of ‘Part II’ come from the group's hope that, as people listen to the songs, they will gain a better view of God and how much he loves them.”
"We are passionate about creating songs that combine a modern sound with the truth of the Gospel, and we wrote this album for anyone who is struggling with questions about their faith, especially students and young adults," shares Switch's Cassidy Estevez. "This is the first generation that's growing up with so much exposure to unfiltered hardships across the world, and social media comparison as a part of everyday life. We wrote these songs to help them navigate these difficulties with a faith perspective."
