Tasha Layton has released a new single celebrating freedom from fear and worry.
The new song, 'Lay It Down,' is a pop ballad echoing the promise of Jesus: “For my yoke is easy and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:30).
“There’s a lot we’re called to lay down in Scripture: our burdens, our pride, our crowns, even laying down to rest; laying down is a theme in the Bible,” Layton shares. “When we lay down what we’re carrying, our hands are open. And when our hands are free of the things that burden us and weigh us down, we are set apart from the worry and fear that plagues the culture. We’re free to take the hand of another or offer help to those around us—to walk in freedom!”
'Lay It Down, which was inspired by Tasha's journey of deliverance from depression and despair, was written by Layton, Jess Cates and Kalley Heiligenthal, as well as, Keith Everette Smith, who also produced the track.
“Sometimes, when you’re living through the burdens in life, laying it down doesn’t mean that circumstances change,” she adds. “What it does mean, however, is that you are trusting God. He offers peace, hope, and strength along the way as you live from a place of trust and rest instead of striving.”
Tasha is currently preparing for her debut headlining tour this fall. The Look What You've Done Tour kicks off on October 26, 2023.
