Latest to come from the Americana-tinged pop duo is uplifting song “Relate,” which speaks about overcoming differences to come together as the human race.

It manages to build on the Smallbone brothers’ success thus far, sticking to their winning formula of feel-good, emotive and powerful pop songs, whilst simultaneously sounding like nothing they’ve done before.
Joel and Luke Smallbone share in a statement: “’Relate’ is really the ongoing search for compassion and empathy amidst our differences. For us, music has always been about the sense of finding community and connection through the universal language of song. We’re brought together in a beautiful way by that lyric or melody regardless of our backgrounds, differences or where we’re from… As the chorus conveys, ‘I don’t know what it’s like to be you, you don’t know what it’s like to be me, but what if we’re all the same in different kinds of ways, can you relate?’”
