The video for "Broken Halos" was shot in Eagle Mountain, California, described as a "modern-day ghost town," in which the duo fly through the depths of brokenness while gravity tries to keep them stuck on the ground. Finally finding their wings, rocks, dirt, and their mistakes falling past them, they launch into the beauty and majesty of the mountains, finding their strength as the song lyrics suggest.
What Are We Waiting For?, for KING & COUNTRY's fourth studio project, features the talents of brothers Joel and Luke Smallbone, with 13 new original tracks that confront relevant issues and confirm the duo's commitment to community, unity, and family. Set against a sonic backdrop painted by the Platinum-selling group's lush, vivid pop, the collection features cameos from Dante Bowe, Kirk Franklin, and Tori Kelly, and includes barrier-breaking single "RELATE," awe-inspiring "For God Is With Us" and unifying No. 1 hit "TOGETHER." What Are We Waiting For? - The Tour will take for KING & COUNTRY to arenas across the United States, performing brand new songs from its upcoming album for the first time, against the backdrop of an all-new stage design.
"The last two years have been very unique for all of us," says Luke. "It's been a strange time. Going through struggle, you end up asking yourself some interesting questions like 'What am I doing with my life?,' 'What do I want to be known for?,' 'What am I living for?' I think the phrase 'What Are We Waiting For?' encompasses the meaning behind this album."
Joel Smallbone adds, "The last few years have taken us from wondering what was happening to worrying. This album was a way to look at and write about -- from a family perspective, from a spiritual perspective, and a global perspective -- this global suffering that we've all walked through. Our hope is that this title means something slightly different to each of us. This album is an opportunity for us, together, to get moving together again into what we believe is a very bright future."
