"Joy." finds the Smallbone brothers urging people to slow down and take time away from their communication devices. Joel Smallbone told Billboard
"This song took six months to write, and we wrote it partly here in Nashville, some in England, some in Los Angeles, and it was not a finicky song at all to write, we just have a long process. On the song itself, I think that people are so attached to their phones, screens, social media that you need to pause and see the joy, in human connection and interaction."
Luke Smallbone added "There's a real beauty in diversity and different opinions. If you can be open and free about it, that's where the joy is."
