Sarah Reeves reminds us through her music: We are about to get back on our fight in life despite whatever we’re going through.
Sarah Reeves has been one of the pioneers in the Christian music scene. She writes some of her songs that deal with faith and worship to inspire people who listen to her.
But just like any other person, she also went through a rough and dark time in her life. She claims that she wrote her new track ‘Get Back Your Fight’ during those times. See the official music video below:
“So I wrote this song coming out of a pretty rough time. I was going through a lot of personal battles and a little bit of anxiety, depression,” said Reeves, regarding ‘Get Back Your Fight’ in an intimate interview with the media last July 27.
Additionally, she wrote other unreleased tracks that would be included in her upcoming album.
“I had my whole [upcoming] album finished. I had co-written the whole thing with other writers and producers,” said Reeves.
The new album could sound like something she had worked for with all the baggage she carries. She also claimed that it is therapeutic to produce songs that she unpacked her problems to.
“During this time, I felt like I just kind of shut out all the voices and just kind of like… be by myself and get at exactly what I wanted to say. So I started producing… like teaching myself how to produce… and really just finding a lot of therapy in that. I’m also making music and getting lost in it. I also find a way to find myself in it,” said Reeves, regarding the production of the upcoming album.
Despite of just coming out of a dark phase, Sarah was told by her team to keep on having her doors open on social media. She told POP! that she wrote the whole ‘Get Back Your Fight’ track thanks to the comments (that contains other people’s life stories) that inspired her to do so.
“My team told me that, ‘We need you to be active on social media, on Instagram, on TikTok’. So I just decided to kind of turn my camera around on my phone and film my process. As I was doing that, this song ‘Get Back Your Fight’ came out one day. I posted the first verse and the chorus on my Instagram and my TikTok. All of a sudden, I just kind of noticed all these comments and shares – people sort of following me on this song. They were like, ‘What’s going on with this song?’. People sharing their stories and how much they can relate to the lyrics. I’m thinking, ‘Okay, I need to write a second verse’. Then I wrote the second verse and I posted that. Same thing happened. Then my team said, ‘We need you to finish the song.’ So I ended up just quickly finishing it – producing the whole thing by myself. Then writing the rest of it on my own – which I haven’t done that, ever,” said Reeves, on the process of producing and writing ‘Get Back Your Fight.’
Following the successful release of ‘Get Back Your Life’, it garnered over 136,926 streams on Spotify, as of this writing. She had mentioned that the best days are yet to come when the upcoming album goes on its way.
“That album is kind of all over the place. There are some… like love songs… some, heartbreak songs. There are also fun and dancing pop songs. Not every song… I mean, they all have a piece of me in it. But not every song tackles on what I’m going through right now. But it’s obviously about something that I have felt in my lifetime. I think a lot of people can relate to a lot of these songs. So, it’s kind of all over the map. Thematically, the title of the project is called ‘Best Days’. I wrote a song with the album title and it is hope-filled. Kind of like, ‘The best days are ahead of us.’ I wrote that even though I don’t kind of feel it. I decided to name the project ‘Best Days’. It just felt like the right thing – very fitting for the album. So, I’m excited about it,” said Sarah, on her upcoming album.
The upcoming album consists of 16 tracks, including ‘Get Back Your Fight,’ ‘Best Days,’ and other singles.
It is set to be released on September 22 on streaming platforms.
For now, let’s hope that you’d get to perform here in the Philippines. Just know that we’d wait and pray for it, Sarah.
