Lacey Sturm releases her first single in over 4 years, titled "The Decree." The song is a heavy-hitting and talks about living with hope in the present times as the chorus sings The decree's out now/Never been so loud/The times not near it's here/A holy fear is here. "The Decree" features Lacey belting out her distinct screaming occasionally, accompanied by her melodic singing. Her husband, Josh, has a guitar solo in the song as well.
Lacey toured in 2019 with Skillet for a short period as well as heading out on her own headlining tour. Fans would have heard the new track as it was one of two new songs (the other being "State of Me") that Sturm played while on the road. The time with Skillet proved productive, though, as "The Decree" was actually co-written with Skillet's Korey Cooper.
Lacey Sturm is best known for being the lead vocalist in the internationally renowned rock band, Flyleaf. Since leaving the band to take care of family, she returned to the music scene with a solo project. She released the record-breaking album Life Screams in 2016. Meanwhile, Lacey continued to tour lightly, write books, and work on her devotional series with her husband, titled Reflect Love Back. With this powerful new song, Lacey returns to the music scene loud and proud with promise of more new music on the way.
