Prescription for Life

Singer/songwriter Brandon Heath’s new album, Faith Hope Love Repeat (Provident Label Group), offers some simple advice for the uncertain times we live in: “The instruction for a good life is faith, hope, love, repeat. It’s a daily decision that we have to make,” says Heath of the project’s timely message.

The multi-GRAMMY nominee admits he’s struggled with his share of anxiety and tackles worry head-on with new songs like “A Little Faith,” “Future Is Bright,” and “Don’t Be Afraid.”

“My major struggle in life is fear,” he shares. “I’ve written about it for years and years, and I’ve come a long way with my struggle. I feel like it’ll always be there, but I don’t think it’ll always have the hold on me that it has in the past.”

Heath wants his music to become a soundtrack of hope for listeners, so fans can be encouraged in the same way Christian music has served to uplift the singer personally. Faith Hope Love Repeat is one of the most vibrant offerings of Heath’s career, armed with a recipe for success: infectious melodies mixed with thoughtful, meaty lyrics.

“I didn’t make it dark and brooding,” he says. “I made it really fun so that you could feel the weight lifted when you listen to these songs. That’s really what I’m looking for when I listen to Christian music—for the weight to be lifted.”

Heath’s new music is teed up to follow in the footsteps of his long line of hits. “I’ve definitely had a good ride,” he reflects, “and I’ve loved every part of it.”
