Behind the Song
Sam Tinnesz x UNSECRET "'Lay Your Weapons Down"
"I had been writing for my new EP coming called "White Doves" and the themes of that record are all peace, justice and unity. So, when I was collaborating with UNSECRET, I was already in that head space and the title "Lay Your Weapons Down" naturally came to me. At the time it wasn't written for the events happening in our country but now I can't help but associate the two. This song is an anthem and a call for violence to end and for unity to begin. I think we can pray for peace but can also take action to move towards peace. We need to lay our weapons down toward each other and find a middle ground for change." -Sam Tinnesz
