The band started making music in 2012. And, since, then they've released multiple different projects and EPs. Over the past few months, the band released several new singles that have garnered more than 15 million streams. All Of My Best Friends, Young & Free's fourth album, features 20 tracks.

What it Sounds Like
In their songs, Hillsong Young & Free always bring out so many great biblical truths and topics that are relatable to young people.All Of My Best Friends is no exception.From the upbeat "Need Your Love" to the slower "As I Am," whether you like worship or if you like more pop-inspired songs, this album has a song for you. Sometimes it can be hard to find albums with this much variety, but Young & Free made sure there was a song for everyone on this record. This album has a great sound to it. I know that you're going to love it.
From "Indescribable" to "Never Have I Ever," there's a consistent message throughout this album about the character of God. In "Indescribable," we hear how good God is to us, and "Never Have I Ever" shares how great God's love is. It's beautiful hearing these important topics put into song form. Each song is a reminder that the most important thing that we have in life is our relationship with God. In "World Outside Your Window," the band shares how quickly life can pass us by. I love how in every song, Young & Free shares the importance of having a relationship with Jesus.
Best Song on the Record
The best song on the record would have to be "Best Friends." This song is fun, upbeat, and features a live audience. Ever since I first heard it, I loved this song and knew it was going to be a hit. We're all on our phones so much these days. We're always looking for some kind of quick-fix to satisfy us when the only way we can truly be satisfied is through Jesus. This song speaks to that topic. "All of my best friends are sick of pretending/We want the truth/So much is missing so give us the real thing/I know it's You."
