Two-time Grammy award-winning duo for KING & COUNTRY highlight the importance of showing kindness to those struggling with depression and thoughts of suicide with the release of their newest video for their song, “God Only Knows.”
The single is the latest tune off their upcoming album, Burn the Ships which will be out Oct. 5. The duo revealed in July that they will put out one song a month leading up to the album drop. Their latest release is the emotional ballad “God Only Knows.”
“God only knows what you’ve been through/God only knows what they say about you/God only knows how it’s killing you/But there’s a kind of love that God only knows,” the lyrics of the song read.
The video for the latest single tells the story of a young woman (played by actress Masey McLain) who finds herself in the darkest despair and believes suicide is the only way out.
“Circumstantially things are good, she’s an attractive woman, she lives in a beautiful home and life is sort of looking good. Yet there are these things, these underlying insecurities that are shifting the way she perceives life and people perceive her,” bandmate Joel Smallbone explained in a behind the scenes video.
The music video takes a turn for the worst when they show the young woman presumably ending her life by jumping off a bridge. It doesn’t end there, however, because they then reverse the events leading up to her jumping off, and illustrate what could have happened if a friend she encountered that evening would have shown her kindness in the midst of her pain. That kindness results in a different outcome to her day.
