GRAMMY® nominated, Dove Award-winning and RIAA Gold-selling Building 429 lead vocalist Jason Roy releases “It’s All Yours” today (May 12) at digital and streaming outlets globally from The Fuel Music. The song is the first of several singles set to debut in the coming months from the multi-artist A New Heaven And A New Earth project that is slated to premiere just before Thanksgiving 2023.
Recording and co-producing the anthemic “It’s All Yours” with Riley Friesen, Roy was inspired to write the song following his lifechanging experience climbing the Half Dome summit in California’s Yosemite National Park, which led to more adventures in nature.
“I really wanted to write a song that echoes how small I feel in this space, and yet how important my role here is,” says Roy. “I look around and see what an incredible gift has been put into our hands. Thinking about the Earth, the massive Redwood trees, the mountains…I sat down at the piano and wrote bursting forth from the ground to the sky, the opening line in the song that runs right into every breath, in and out, you give life, every moment an eternity between what could be and what shouldn’t be, it’s all yours.”
But there’s a call going out like a beacon at sea
Shaking up the earth with this awakening
It’s all Yours
It’s all Yours
From the Garden until the end
Let us cherish and let us defend
Cause it’s all Yours
( “It’s All Yours” Chorus)
Leading the anthemic, pop-driven rock single while on tour, Roy was also honored to be invited to sing the song at an event held at the Vatican Oct. 26, 2022. Having an instant connectivity, the song launches with a motif that announces, ‘It’s time to get up, here we go, we’re doing something together.’
“It was really important to me to create a song and a track that felt like, Wow! Coldplay would have done that,” the singer relays. “I wanted it to have a world vibe that would echo around the globe that something bigger and larger is going on here, working hard to keep an ethereal nature to it.”
While Roy’s single is the first to be released from the A New Heaven And A New Earth project, he will be joined by several of his well-known peers representing multiple musical genres who felt led to participate. Each artist responded to the call to write and record a song on how taking care of creation is to glorify God (Genesis 2:15). Contributing artists and more music will be revealed in the coming months.
