The ten-track collection, written by frontman M.C. Taylor, was recorded with Brad and Phil Cook, Chris Boerner, Josh Kaufman, Darren Jessee, Michael Lewis, and Scott Hirsch, and features vocal contributions from Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, Tift Merritt, Skylar Gudasz, Tamisha Waden, Mac McCaughan, and John Paul White.

In a press statement for the album, Taylor says, “This music is for hope. That’s the only thing I want to say about it. Love is the only way out. I’ve never been afraid of the darkness; it’s just a different kind of light. And if some days that belief comes harder than others, hallelujah anyhow.”

After finishing up their summer music festival circuit, Hiss Golden Messenger will be hitting the road this fall in support of their forthcoming record with a slew of U.S. tour dates, three of which will include Mumford & Sons.
