Herb Longs of TheChristianBeat.org writes, Joel and Luke share in a statement:
“’Relate’ is really the ongoing search for compassion and empathy amidst our differences. For us, music has always been about the sense of finding community and connection through the universal language of song. We’re brought together in a beautiful way by that lyric or melody regardless of our backgrounds, differences or where we’re from… As the chorus conveys, ‘I don’t know what it’s like to be you, you don’t know what it’s like to be me, but what if we’re all the same in different kinds of ways, can you relate?’”
Additionally, RELATE’s release was followed by the group’s announcement of their first tour in 2 years, RELATE | The 2021 Fall Tour, going back to arenas and amphitheaters to perform brand new music from their upcoming album together with selected songs from the duo’s nine number 1 hits of the charts.
