Four-time GRAMMY® Award-winning duo for KING & COUNTRY released “Heavenly Hosts,” the latest track and lyric video from the duo’s forthcoming Christmas album, A Drummer Boy Christmas, out October 30th. “Heavenly Hosts” is one of two original songs written by for KING & COUNTRY for their new album.
Fresh off their win last night at the Billboard Music Awards for Top Christian Song, Joel and Luke Smallbone, the brothers who make up for KING & COUNTRY, share in a statement:
“Writing an original Christmas song is a bit of a daunting task, but we were always very intrigued by what it looked like when the angels met the shepherds. What did it look like, and what was being said? One of the beautiful storylines of the song is that the simple shepherds were the first ones to see the beautiful spectacle in the sky, and we thought it would be an appropriate story to tell through song for A Drummer Boy Christmas.”
“Heavenly Hosts” is a dynamic and emotional celebration of the wonder and power of Christmas. for KING & COUNTRY’s latest original tune starts off with a sparse piano introduction that soon evolves into a full orchestra crescendo as Joel and Luke state declaratively “love has come to save us.”
Joel and Luke Smallbone discuss the origin of “Heavenly Hosts” in their “Story Behind the Song” video clip HERE.
