Lacey Sturm of Shinedown is back with a new single, “Awaken Love,” and an emotive music video coupled with it

Former Flyleaf singer Lacey Sturm has spent years building up her solo career, and now the Christian rock singer has released her latest single and music video. The song, called “Awaken Love,” is a moody, string-heavy ballad that oozes with emotion. It’s coupled with an equally emotive music video, featuring Sturm waking up in a desolate, torn-down home. Watch the official music video for “Awaken Love” below.

“Awaken Love” marks Sturm’s second song of 2021, her first being “State of Me.” Sturm co-wrote both “State of Me” and “Awaken Love” with Korey Cooper of Skillet.

The new song, Sturm says, explores the emotions of being engrossed in a perfect love. “With lyrics, I go into a place where I try to hear what the song is about. I have to learn. The music tells you,” she says in a statement of the writing process of the new song. “Sometimes there are lyrics that stir that up, and Korey already had some of that written.”

“Romance is a shadow of the divine,” she added. “The shadow boxing of romance is really coming from the divine dance of God and humanity.”

Sturm left Flyleaf in 2012. Since then, she’s toured solo with a range of artists, including Skillet, Breaking Benjamin and Shinedown. During the pandemic, Lacey has kept busy writing new music and finding new ways to connect with listeners. She also recently appeared on Breaking Benjamin’s single “Dear Agony (Aurora Version),” which reached No. 13 on the Billboard 200.

“Awaken Love” is currently available via streaming platforms. Watch Audio Ink Radio’s past video interview with Lacey Sturm here.
