After a brief hiatus from recording, veteran CCM duo Shane & Shane
have returned with their new album, The One You Need
The tracks on The One You Need
feature deeply spiritual, thought provoking lyrics. They explore themes such as freedom in Christ on “Liberty”, trusting God unconditionally on “Grace is Sufficient”, and longing for God’s presence on “Without You”.
The album’s first single, “The One You Need” is a tender letter from Shane Barnard to his newborn daughter. Pointing to Jesus as her hero rather than himself, Barnard sings “sometimes I’m gonna let you down; but there’s Someone if you just believe, be your hero like He’s always been for me. Darling, Jesus is the One you need.”

4. Future Version
5. Because He’s God
6. The One You Need
9. Running to You
10. Grace is Sufficient

Musically, the album is very diverse, ranging from jazz, to rock, to soul. However, Shane & Shane
retain their signature acoustic worship sound on the modern day psalm “Lift up the Light” and a universal call to worship, “Praise Him”.
The One You Need
is an excellent album featuring enjoyable songs from start to finish. The One You Need
will be released on October 4th.
