  • Third Day's tenth studio album, Miracle, was the result of the band feeling a need to "shake things up." To help them to do this they hired legendary producer Brendan O'Brien (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, The Killers, Train) to helm the set. As a consequence, there are sounds that have never been heard previously on a Third Day record, including frontman Mac Powell's use of falsetto on the choruses of this song. Said the singer: "As someone who is a natural baritone, I don't sing falsetto very often. But sometimes as I'm writing these songs I hear in my head that is what the part should be. I talked to Brendan and he gave me the confidence to try it. This is just one example of how Brendan pushed me out of my comfort zone."
