Today, Underoath shared a new collaborative version of “Hallelujah” featuring rising star vocalist Charlotte Sands. The original version of “Hallelujah” appeared on their latest critically acclaimed album Voyeurist, out now on Fearless Records. This reimagined version of the song boasts one of the most addictive hooks of the band’s career over a soundscape anchored in lush guitars, soaring synths, and percussion that will rattle the listener to their bones. Sands contributes a caustic vocal performance that elevates the melody to new heights while sounding right at home alongside the well worn sonic tapestry of the band. Her vocals lend a compelling emotional narrative to the track, showcasing not only her prodigious ability as a singer but also the groups dynamic songwriting style. You can stream the song here.
Drummer and vocalist Aaron Gillespie has this to say about the collaboration: “So stoked to be able to partner with Charlotte on this tune, she’s the real deal, a crazy talent and a great person, she brought a different and really cool environment to this song, super pumped to have to on it.”
Sands has this to add about the experience of working with the band: “Hallelujah” is one of those songs that feels like an entire experience while you’re listening. It’s one of my favorite things about Underoath, their ability to make every song, lyric, and melody feel captivating and immersive. I feel incredibly honored that they have welcomed me into their world and let me tap into a part of myself and my voice that I haven’t shared. I still can’t believe I was able to be a part of this song and sing alongside legends like Spencer and Aaron, I will brag about this moment for a lifetime to come.”
