CAVES is NEEDTOBREATHE’s nineth studio album and their first since 2021’s Into the Mystery. The excellent album, which features eleven new songs, was produced by Cason Cooley and the band, and features collaborations with Carly Pearce, Judah & the Lion, Foy Vance, and Old Dominion. NEEDTOBREATHE has been making music for more than twenty years and this new album is one of my favorites of 2023.
Here are a few comments about each song:
The Cave – This upbeat opener was written by Bear Rinehart, Josh Lovelace, and Mokita. The song opens with guitar, with the full band kicking in before verse two. The song features a guitar solo. He needs some time to be on his own in a world without a mirror.

First light is coming and there's
No more need for hiding
Everknown – This uplifting song was written by Bear Rinehart, Seth Bolt, Josh Lovelace, Tyler Burkum, Chance McCoy, and Mokita. The song is inspired by those in the band’s lives who have helped shape them into the people they are today.
