Pennsylvania-based artist Illijam released a new single called “Changed,” featuring and produced by Adrian Stresow.

“Few things knock the wind out of the soul like a once-familiar friend becoming a stranger, especially when supposed-believers leave not only our lives but also our Lord. Adrian Stresow & I wrestle with the emotional fall-out of this reality, and then find comfort by fixating on the One who will never change: Jesus Christ.” Illijam says.

In the outro, Illijam quotes John Piper’s 1993 poem “Judas, My Son“, in which the Apostle Peter comforts Judas’ father, saying:

“Sink not in darkness nor despair,
Bear not what yours is not to bear:
When you have loved and lost then trust;
The ways of God are always just.”
