Brandon Lake, the Grammy-winning artist and songwriter, releases his latest album, HELP!, on May 13th, 2022. An inspiring collection of songs that portrays Lake’s struggle with depression, anxiety, loneliness, and other mental health struggles that acts as a declarative prayer as he is processing his personal feelings. The lead single from the EP, “HELP”, is available now.
HELP features the voices of JUDAH, Chandler Moore, Amanda Cook, and his sons Blaise and Beau. Through the sharing of raw honesty and authenticity, this album serves as a resounding “me too” for anyone struggling with thoughts which are not of God. By combining songs of declaration with songs that invite the heart into intimate worship, one of the messages conveyed by this album is that perspective is vital. Whatever the devil meant for bad can be redeemed by the Lord for good. In a time when mental health is at an all-time low, Lake wishes to remind others they are not alone in their struggles. The word “help” is a powerful and liberating concept.
“In my lifetime, I’ve never experienced more opportunity to cave under the weight of anxiety and depression,” reflects Lake. “I believe it’s important that we are real, honest, and raw about the mental battles we face—that we bring them into the light so God can remind us of who He is and who we are. I believe we need honest songs, but we also need warfare songs to come against those attacks that try and keep us from being everything God wants us to be and from living truly free. Freedom has been purchased, but we need reminders that it is our inheritance and the reality we can live in daily through Him who set us free.”
