Integrity Music have launched Songs From The Soil, a new collective of UK songwriters and worship leaders seeking to reignite the UK Church’s songbook by creating fertile spaces where new songs of worship might grow. Songs From The Soil’s debut single is ‘Fighting For My Heart’ and it’s led by Philippa Hanna and Noel Robinson (video above).
The new song was originally written by KXC’s Rich di Castiglione and LA-based songwriter Jordan Frye for those wrestling with issues of self-hatred and self-harm, although it has become an anthem of hope to many others too. ‘Fighting For My Heart’ is based on the closing verses in Romans 8, exhorting God’s people and celebrating how nothing can separate us from the love of God – not even our own brokenness. In the chorus, echoes of Psalms 139 and 23 highlight the liturgical thread running through ‘Fighting For My Heart’.
“We pray that this song can become an anthem of hope and a song of deliverance for all who have no hope left for themselves,” says Rich di Castiglione.
‘Fighting For My Heart’ introduces the stripped-back, communal, and deeply honest feel that captures what Songs From The Soil is all about.
