More than the music or the lyrics of this album, what has become more important has been the reason for why it was made. There is a common thread throughout the diversity of the genres of these four songs. In the first, a song which is more contemporary in genre, it is a message of finding that no matter where a person goes in life, God will always be there. This is a message that the artist has found to be so true in the darkest and loneliest parts of her life. In the next, the song for which the album was named after 'Release', was written during a confusing and struggling time in her life. But it was in her moment of indecision that she began to sing about releasing herself to a savior who never let her down and carried her through. So the importance of this song is so vital because it is a mindset that has continued to be a staple in her lyrics and most importantly, her life. The third song, 'At the Altar', is her lifesong. In a season of life that she has begun to see was the turning point in her entire ministry, she laid down her future, her fears, her pain and everything that she held close to her heart, to Jesus. It was in that moment that the idea for this song came to mind. But it would not be written until almost two years later. It has continued to be the song that she sings because it can be applied to every situation. The last song, 'Bring It On' has been a song of confidence in which she thinks of whenever she begins to get discouraged about the weights and trials of life that can pile up every day. But there is a strength in recognizing that these things only build us up, only make us better. So this is her reply to every storm, every trial, every future situation that she may find herself in...Bring It On!
