“What Are We Waiting For?” debuted during an exclusive K-LOVE First event, allowing the K-LOVE family to hear the thought-provoking single before anyone else. Prior to launching the song at radio, the band previewed the choir-assisted original live on their recent 36-city spring tour in support of their latest project, and they’re sure to include it in their summer setlist as they perform at a slate of festivals and fairs across the country throughout a season primed for outdoor concerts.

The group’s 13-song “What Are We Waiting For?” album bowed in March of last year without a title track and spawned multiple consecutive hits, including “TOGETHER,” “RELATE,” the aforementioned “Love Me Like I Am” and the 2022 K-LOVE Fan Awards Song of the Year, “For God Is With Us.”

“So often we deal in statements in life — about ourselves, about God, about others. And yet, if you look at Jesus’ life, He often dealt in questions. We have found it very relieving and exciting to start writing from that place, and ‘What Are We Waiting For?’ stands as just that,” the newly minted 2023 K-LOVE Fan Awards Artist of the Year winners explain of the message behind the fresh selection. “One of our favorite lines in the whole song is ‘What are we praying for? What are we saving for? What if we could be the light that no one could ignore?’ We’re proud to ask these questions alongside you, and we hope that you find your answers as we’ve found ours. ‘What Are We Waiting For? (The Single)’ is now yours for the listening. Hope you enjoy it as much as we’ve enjoyed creating it.”
