Is This The Time?

Album: Unfathomable Phantasmagoria (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the first single from Jahméne Douglas' second album. The 2012 X Factor runner-up told The Mirror the song is an "anthem of encouragement."

    "That spiritual journey towards finding what is right for you," he explained. "It's been a long hard fight to arrive where I am today. This song for me captures that fight with trying to come to terms with realizing that sometimes you have to face that journey alone with God."

    Douglas added: "Some people just aren't ready to face that journey alone, so I hope that this song encourages those people to keep pushing through to your time."
  • Jahméne managed to persuade Hollywood star Samuel L Jackson to supply the narration at the beginning of the song, which is a quote from the New Testament Letter to the Galatians 5:22-23.
