Written by on June 13, 2021

Singer-songwriter Ellie Holcomb released a new song, “Color,” from her forthcoming album Canyon, which is available later this month on June 25th.

Along with “Color,” Holcomb released another breathtaking music video for the song that was filmed at Big Bend National Park and directed by Shelby Goldsmith. The song was co-written with Bear Rinehart of NEEDTOBREATHE.

“I hope it helps people open their eyes to the presence and beauty of God that surrounds us in both our most ordinary and mundane moments AND in our most broken moments,” shares Ellie Holcomb. “I wrote the bridge of this song about my mom’s story. She didn’t grow up in the church at all, but one day in 7th grade, as a group of girls were gossiping in the hall, one of her friends walked away. My mom followed her and asked her if she was ok, and mom’s friend replied. ‘I’m good, I just love Jesus and don’t think it’s very loving to talk about others behind their back, but I knew that I’d just join in if I stayed there.’ My mom had two responses: first ‘Who is Jesus? I’ve never heard anyone talk about him like that?’ and secondly ‘Will you be my best friend- you are amazing?!’ Because of this friend and her family, my mom encountered the living God, and her whole world went from black and white to 3D and COLOR.”

Her debut radio single from Canyon is “I Don’t Want To Miss It,” which is currently in the Top 35 on the Billboard Airplay chart and Top 25 the AC Indicator chart with 33 stations on the song. The song has 864k global audio streams to date and the official video has more than 76k views on YouTube.
