You better preach because Samm Henshaw has released the exuberant, soulful anthem, “Church,” featuring Atlanta duo Earthgang.
The smile-inducing song features handclaps and heavy bass with back up vocals from a gospel choir. “Wake up, wake up, wish I could hear you right now / Somebody come and tell this lady cool down / Wake up and get yourself to church / Yeah,” Henshaw sings on the chorus.
The funky track was released alongside a quirky video that follows a mother and son who are late for Sunday morning church. Henshaw also performs the song live with a church choir during the clip’s closing credits.
“[The song] is basically about the struggle between me and my parents when I was a teenager,” Henshaw told the FADER. “I love my sleep so them attempting to wake me up to go [to] Church on a Sunday morning was a constant battle.”
