Switchfoot recently released a re-imaged version of their current radio single "I Won't Let You Go" as a beautiful collaboration with worship icon Lauren Daigle. Click here to check it out on Spotify.

Switchfoot frontman Jon Foreman shrared on Instagram: "@lauren_daigle has one of the most beautiful voices on the planet. She visited our studio to write some tunes and collaborate a few months back...WARNING: listen in a safe place where you can quietly shed tears of joy. You're amazing, Lauren!" Foreman posted the cover for the single, along with a link for a temporary free download of the song.

The idea for the collaboration began at Switchfoot's BRO-AM event, an annual benefit concert for homeless and at-risk youth in San Diego, when the band persuaded Daigle to sing with them on stage. Several songs were thrown in the mix while they were deciding which song to sing together, but in the end, "I Won't Let You Go" was chosen.

"For me, when I wrote that song, I was thinking of Love Himself -- the transcendent maker of time and space -- singing 'I won't let you go' to me. To be able to hear somebody else singing those lyrics -- and Lauren's voice is so amazing -- it felt like a beautiful chance to kind of enter into the song in a different way," Foreman said about the collaboration.

Lauren described the experience on her YouTube channel, "As we were singing the song all together, there was just such a feel in the air... the guys were just so encouraging about all of it and they said, 'Hey, would you like to come jump into the studio next week and we can record this just for fun?'... I think as the time unfolded, as the experience unfolded, we realized, whoa, this has the potential to be something a little bit more than just us messing around in the studio." She continued, "I just loved their openness to collaborate. It was so much fun! There was so much excitement in the room that we just had to share it with all of ya'll."
