Lecrae talks about the theme of ‘Gravity’ in an interview with Family Christian: “Gravity is loosely based on Ecclesiastes and I think what Solomon was trying to do was bring some weight to life and that’s really what I want to do, to paint some sober pictures. Honestly everything sober is not bad so I don’t want people to think that sober pictures are bad. You know, there is a sobering picture when you’re overwhelmed with all of the hurt and the pain in this world. There’s a sober picture of how it’s only for a short period of time, it’s short-lived, or that we still have Jesus. So that’s what I would call a weighty part, a gravitational pull to remind us of who we are in Jesus. So obviously, just wanting to paint hope, but also just giving the pictures of the realities of this life that we live, and how there’s no escaping it other than Jesus.“
Album description: From “latch-key kid” to key player in the Man Up movement, Lacrae’s life is an example of God’s trans-formative power – and he’s not quiet about it. In his signature straight-shot approach, his new album Gravity calls Christians to open their eyes to the weight of the need in their world, and to share the love of Jesus as never before.
