Tomlin explained in the same interview the reason for the Hello Love album title: "There are so many things in those two words. First, I just love the way those two words sound together. It's a beautiful thing. But it's way more than that - it also causes people to think. The 'love' idea to me is, when you break everything down in life, it all comes down to love. Worship is a big thing in our lives, but when you break it all down, it's love: 'To love the Lord your God with all your heart, your soul, your mind, your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself.' To me our greatest need in the world is not another song, but it's the singers of the songs meeting the needs of the world."
Tomlin added, "Hello Love [means] we want to reintroduce ourselves to love again. That's the idea: if we've forgotten what it's about, then let's reintroduce ourselves. It all comes down to love. It's what love to God and for God is all about. Hopefully these songs inspire that. Hopefully these songs cause people to love God even more, to get closer to God, and that it inspires people to love each other and make a difference in the world."
