This is the lead single from Christian pop punk band Stellar Kart's fourth album, Everything is Different Now. The LP was produced by Dove Award-winning producer Ian Eskelin (Francesca Battistelli, Krystal Meyers) and was originally released on September 21, 2009 at the band's live shows. It was released in retail stores the following February.
Frontman Adam Agee commented in publicity materials that rather than focusing on more relational matters, on Everything is Different Now the material has more of a worshipful flavor. He explained this is a return to the band's roots. "We had performed at a camp earlier in the summer before recording, and we really discovered that we loved leading worship for youth again," he said. "So we tried to find some of the songs that were our favorites and wrote a few new songs, too, and that eventually became Everything is Different Now."
This song was originally the title track of a 2007 album by Georgia-based Christian rock and Contemporary worship music band Fee. Agee explained that Stellar Kart's cover reflects the band's foremost desire to glorify God. He said: "As a band, that's exactly what we want to do in front of the adults, kids, anyone listening—shine. We hope that everyone will shine his/her light and not be afraid or ashamed of what they believe."
