After years of taking a break from music to study theology and focus on his family, Will Retherford makes a return with his first single "HUMAN" in over 5 years. This song will be the first of many new releases from Will as he dives into a new sound in which he describes as "collaborating with the sounds of dance and Anglican mass -- a.ka. Neo Spiritual Pop." 

 "HUMAN" was written during a time when Will was living in Harlem, Manhattan with his family where they found themselves as a minority being white. Will was haunted the discovery of hidden prejudices towards people of color in a low-income neighborhood. Will had never considered himself to be prejudice, but this new awakening led to a strong perspective change and a desire to help others find what's hidden within them. Will believes if we can start with deep internal reflection on ourselves, then we can begin to change the world helping one person at a time. The chorus of "HUMAN" is inspired by former South African Bishop Desmond Tutu quote, "My humanity is bound up in yours, for we can only be human together."

Will has worked with several artists and producers in the Christian music industry but is looking to build a bridge between "Christian music" and "non-Christian music." He believes that all music is spiritual, its just the topic of focus that changes per song. Will is going to be focusing on multiple releases a year centering around faith, social justice, and specifically, liturgical prayers. 

"HUMAN" is now available on all platforms.
