Switchfoot & Lifehouse Release New Song 'Shine Like Gold' In Aid Of Hurricane Harvey Relief

Sep 01 2017

US rock bands Switchfoot and Lifehouse have joined forces to release a song, called 'Shine Like Gold', in response to the wreckage of Hurricane Harvey in Texas. All proceeds from the 'pay what you want' download will go to benefit flood relief in Houston through Food for the Hungry.

The song was recorded in Nashville on Tuesday, 29th August, after being co-written by Switchfoot frontman Jon Foreman and Lifehouse lead-singer Jason Wade.

"Jason and I had always talked about writing a song together", explains Jon. "When it finally happened, 'Shine Like Gold' became a song about everyday heroes fighting their way through the darkness toward the light. On the day we recorded the song, Hurricane Harvey began wreaking havoc in Texas. Sometimes you don't know what a song is for until after its written. In this case it became crystal clear. As we watched our friends and family in Texas struggle through the aftermath of the hurricane, we knew exactly what we had to do."

The song can be download for a donation from Switchfoot's website. "Your donation will help us provide these items to our friends in Houston affected by Hurricane Harvey: Emergency food, Clean water, Hygiene kits, Blankets and bedding, Other supplies, Medical attention, Clean up efforts".
