East London worship musician/ songwriter Jean du Rand has released a song, Garden which he says is the first of a series of singles that “have been birthed out of a place of journeying with Yahweh into a place of intimacy, where all structures of performance and strife fade away and rest becomes the norm”.
He says: “I wrote and produced the song during the weird and interesting time that is Covid lockdowns and it is the lockdown which gave me the time and space to work on these songs without distraction.
“Something I’m really proud of is the fact that wrote and produced this song by myself, which is something I’ve been dreaming about for years.
“Garden is a song that celebrates the freedom and joy of union with God, bringing words to the cry of my heart, which is to know God and be known by Him.”
The single is available on various music platforms, including Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Music and KKBOX!. See the lyric video below on Youtube.
