Land and Salt have released their new single and lyric video 'Put On Love', taken from the recent EP 'Salve' The song is a collaboration with violinist Robyn Welsby, who's layered strings steep the song in harmony and warmth.
"Based on Colossians 3:13-14, 'Put On Love' speaks of forgiveness between brothers and sisters in Christ", explains duo Land and Salt. "Forgiveness that forces us to beg the Father for grace because we cannot do it alone. Unforgiveness can poison the ground we walk on and destroys lives. So, we are called to be different - not to rely on our own emotions but to seek God's word over our own feelings. Our communities will burst with joy and heave a sigh of relief when we begin to forgive each other as Christ has forgiven us.
The video we have created around this song shows not only the power of creativity in unity, but the task of putting others first and standing vulnerable before God, trusting in His plan for our restoration. With the time of remembrance approaching we bring to mind the sacrifice that began on the cross for all and the love of bearing with one another in all things for the sake of mankind."
Earlier this year the duo were nominated for two JUMP MVA 2019 awards for their video 'Tree To Tree'. The video is a vintage animation which shows the heartwarming tale of having faith in difficulty and hope in adversity, and leaning on the peace that surpasses all understanding.
"'Tree To Tree' tells of the plan God set in place when humanity chose our own way at the first tree until He rescued us at the next tree that became the cross - and the peace that broke through into the world. It is a peace that we can have even during difficulty and strife. It is a peace which is not always visible but is always there. Not a warm fuzzy feeling but an assurance of who we are when we trust in God."
