Songfacts®:

  • This catchy foot-stomper with the theme of heaviness turning to hope is the lead single of the Contemporary Christian musician Brandon Heath's third studio album, Leaving Eden. Written by Heath and Jason Ingram, "Your Love" was the pair's first collaboration since their 2009 Dove Song of the Year success, "Give Me Your Eyes."
  • Heath lives in Nashville, where there are no shortage of songwriters to collaborate with. And while he finds it very rewarding to write a song on his own, working with another writer has it's advantages. Heath told us: "There's a few reasons why I co-write. I don't know that it's necessarily the most comfortable process for me, because when I'm writing alone, there's no boundaries. I feel a little more at ease, usually, just by myself. But I enjoy the co-writing experience for a few reasons. Number one, there's a lot more motivation to finish what you started. With me, I'm kind of ADD and I'll finish, like, a verse and a chorus and it may never get finished. But with a co-writer, there's an 'I don't want to waste this guy's time, so let's try to finish it' attitude." (Check out our full Brandon Heath interview.)
