Grammy award-winning artist and President/co-founder of the independent record label ‘Reach Records,’ is set to release a brand new audio/video “Set Me Free” on Friday March 20th 2020.
“Set Me Free” is a personal ballad sharing hope and freedom that can be found in life. The idea of being “set free” is used as a triple entendre: freedom from the industry, society, and schemes of evil. This track is the lead single for Lecrae’s 2020 ninth studio album, Restoration.
The track marks the first collaboration with Florida rapper/singer YK Osiris, first confirmed on a YouTube interview video with Tall Guy Car Reviews. “Set Me Free” also samples Mary Mary’s 1999 track “Shackles (Praise You)”, which also shares a theme of freedom. The track was first premiered at Lecrae’s halftime show at the Atlanta Hawks game on Martin Luther King Jr. Day (January 20, 2020):
On March 16, 2020, during the infamous Coronavirus (COVID-19) national pandemic, Lecrae announced through an Instagram video that the track would drop on March 20, 2020, to help comfort those who are seeking freedom during the pandemic:
