Christian singer-songwriter Matt Redman releases ‘Halfway Empty’, the third single off his anticipated 2023 album. The new song – and its compelling title – explores the idea that when our cup is full to the brim and overflowing, we aren’t even close to the end of God’s grace; it’s not even “halfway empty”.
Matt Redman wrote most of the lyrics in a hospital waiting room as one of his children underwent surgery; a tough moment in which he could practice focusing on the Lord’s kindness and provision.
“I hope that’s what this song will do for other people too – in the middle of our battles and struggles – to help us remember we are constantly held, cared for and provided for,” he says. ‘Halfway Empty’ encourages the Church, reminding us that there has never been a day when the goodness, blessing, and favor of our God didn’t show up in our lives somehow. There’s an innate gentleness to ‘Halfway Empty’ as it was recorded in an acoustic style, emphasizing the tender heart of God towards his people.”
Written alongside Quinten Coblentz, Wes Writer and Lynnea, the new single is a worshipful song of remembrance and thanksgiving about the plentiful, lavish, and inexhaustible goodness and grace of God in our lives.
