Curb Records award-winning band Sidewalk Prophets returns with megawatt anthem “Hurt People (Love Will Heal Our Hearts),” available today (5/10) — listen HERE. Serving as the lead track from the group’s upcoming fifth studio album, “Hurt People (Love Will Heal Our Hearts)” offers Sidewalk Prophets’ first taste of new music since 2020’s The Things That Got Us Here.

“It’s easy to fight hurt with hurt. We sometimes hide behind our tough words, sarcasm, pettiness and meanness. But all these responses steer us away from what we really want — HEALING,” observes Sidewalk Prophets frontman Dave Frey about the ultimate message behind the new song. “Hurt people, hurt people, but only the grace and love of Christ will heal our hearts.”

Doling out ample amounts of kindness, both for ourselves and others, the massive pop offering encourages listeners to extend forgiveness for the sharp words that often leave us feeling wounded and defensive. “Hurt People (Love Will Heal Our Hearts)” was written by Frey, Ben McDonald, Parker Welling and Jonathan Smith, and produced by Mark Campbell and Sidewalk Prophets members Cal Joslin and Dan Macal.

The trio recently wrapped the spring leg of their acclaimed “Songs & Stories Tour.” After debuting the intimate acoustic outing in 55 markets last year, the band took their stripped-down set to an additional 20 cities across 12 states in March and April. More tour dates will be announced soon as Sidewalk Prophets begins to preview new music from their next full-length project.
