Centricity Music recording artist Unspoken releases 'Love Is Everything We Need' to radio, digital retail and streaming outlets everywhere today (Feb. 18). The band’s debut single of 2022 is also the lead song from its first full-length album in three years, which is slated to release in July.
Along with the audio produced by Chris Stevens (Toby Mac, Carrie Underwood, Mandisa), the Max Hsu, Joshua Wurzelbacher, Nathan Schneider and Emmy and Dove Award-nominated Elliott Eicheldinger-directed “Love Is Everything We Need” video is a YouTube Premieres feature that can be seen now above. The concept music video features Unspoken performing the song while hilarity ensues at a wedding party gone awry. The video highlights comedic cameo appearances by Victoria Jackson (Saturday Night Live), Richard Lee Jackson (Saved by the Bell: The New Class), Michele Pillar and more.
“These last couple years, we, as believers, have had to have some really strong conversations because in our culture, we find it hard to disagree on certain things, and still love and be kind to each other,” says Unspoken lead vocalist Chad Mattson, revealing the impetus behind the new song. “There is this polarization of beliefs, yet Jesus reveals to us in John chapter 13 that it’s love that identifies us with being his kids.
“We can disagree, but we can all agree on the fact that we need to love and respect each other, even when we are at different places in our lives politically, socially, even religiously,” continues Mattson. “‘Love Is Everything We Need’ is a song of encouragement for believers, to find ways to love each other even when we don’t see eye to eye on everything. Our love is one of the biggest testimonies we have.”
Love, love, love, love Love is everything we need
Love, love, love, love Love is what we’re called to be
We may not see eye to eye
But tell me can’t we all agree
Love, love, love, love Love is everything
Love is everything we need
(Lyrics from “Love Is Everything We Need” chorus)
“Love Is Everything We Need” follows 2019’s acclaimed, bestselling album Reason, which sparked several radio hits, including the multiformat No. 1 title track and Top 20 singles “You’ve Always Been” and “Just Give Me Jesus.”
