It's been three years since Lacey Sturm parted ways with Flyleaf and for fans, the singer's future in music was uncertain. Now, the singer is back with a brand new single "Impossible" off of her upcoming 2016 debut solo album, Life Screams.
The epic new single is streaming via Octane over at SiriusXM's website, and if you haven't given it a spin yet, it's a must-hear. The powerful, emotional ballad is as clear of a mission statement as one could make.
According to Alternative Press, the singer commented on her return. "I was listening to the radio one day and I said to myself, 'If I hear one more song telling people to kill themselves and go to hell, I'm going to have to put a record out!'" she said. "I just think it would be a good thing to have a voice in the mix of all the hopelessness that actually gives you a light at the end of the tunnel; a voice that's still honest about the pain and struggle, but can also scream, 'Hey, wake up and be alive, because there's hope!'"
Life Screams is due out early 2016 via Followspot Records and the new single will be available for purchase on Nov. 6. She recently shared that album's cover artwork via Instagram after initiating a scavenger hunt for fans to find it somewhere online. The challenge proved to be no big deal for Sturm's fans.
The singer told Sirius XM, in regards to the song, "We chose it [as the first single] because we just really felt like it embodied where we're at right now and all of the excitement and urgency that we feel for what we are about to enter into... It's heavy, it's genuine, it's full of hope, and it's just who we are. I love it."
Watch Lacey Sturm perform "Faith" last October at the Calvary Church in Costa Mesa, California.
