Christian Music News, New Christian Music News Following last month's announcement that they would be ending their year-long hiatus, Switchfoot is officially back with the release of brand new single "Native Tongue." The song is the title track from the band's upcoming eleventh studio album, due out January 18, 2019, and available for pre-order now.

In celebration of the new album, Switchfoot will head back out on the road for a headlining tour next spring. Colony House and Tyson Motsenbocker will join Switchfoot as support acts. Public on-sale for the tour begins Oct. 26th. Click here for more information on tour dates and tickets. 

Paste magazine debuted the Native Tongue album art and the YouTube Premiere of the dynamic music video for the title track written by Switchfoot front man Jon Foreman and bassist Tim Foreman with Brent Kutzle of One Republic. The lyrics are a poignant reminder, "Before we learn to hate. Love is our Native Tongue."

"These are polarizing times, where the loudest voice is often the voice of anger or fear. This album is an attempt to sing that hope into life. To bring a group of diverse songs under one common banner. Hatred is not your native language. Love is your Native Tongue," expressed Jon Foreman.


In the midst of an impressive career spanning more than 20 years, Native Tongue is an inspired work of insight and passion from a band that continues to find strength in our differences and hope in what binds us. The 14-song project, recorded primarily at Melody League Studios in the band's hometown of San Diego, Calif., includes a wide array of music from the hard-hitting anthemic title-track to more reflective songs such as "Prodigal Soul," "Joy Invincible," and "Voices," (co-written and produced with their friends in One Republic). The band interlace empathy and introspection, urging us to "use our lungs for love and not the shadows." Native Tongue also features a moving collaboration with Kaela Sinclair on "The Hardest Art."
