"City of David," birthed as a surprise to the duo while working on their new studio album. David Radford explains "We really hadn't planned on recording a Christmas song this year but inspiration kicked in one night and I started recording on my iPhone. When we showed the song to our producer, Ben Shive, he voted to keep the iPhone vocals, declaring them to be cool, so we did!"
The Gray Havens rush released "City of David" to digital outlets including Apple Music and Spotify and created a "making of" video, which can be viewed below.
In addition to the new Christmas song, The Gray Havens recently released "High Enough," the first single from their forthcoming album scheduled to release in Spring 2018. The Gray Havens can be seen live on some of Andrew Peterson's Behold The Lamb Tour dates including the sold out show at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium.
Known for their unique blend of narrative folk/pop, The Gray Havens continue to expand their reach into multiple genres with thought provoking lyrical poetry. The duo has performed alongside such artists as The Oh Hellos, John Marc McMillan, Andrew Peterson, Drew Holcomb among others.
