Just a month after releasing "S.M.S.," DJ and producer duo Corporate Slackrs have returned for another expertly produced song, this time teaming up with vocalist Eliason on "Faith." The song marks the second and final single before their debut EP, following bass-heavy "Fire In My Eyes" and poppy "Wasted Love" featuring vocals from Emma Zander, out on Tiësto's Musical Freedom.
"Faith" continues on the songwriting-centric approach of "S.M.S." yet elevates that to a new level. A catchy guitar melody supports Eliason's vocal lines before organic claps and other elements are added in. The drop, that comes quickly, explodes into a sequence of brass stabs, anthemic vocals, and explosive drums.
“'Faith' is a record about begging someone to take one more chance (knowing that you probably don’t deserve it)," said Eliason on the song. "I remember working with Devin and AJ on this song at their studio, and that Devin already had the idea for the chorus and the name. He showed me the instrumental and, having grown up in the church, I was immediately excited - it had this real gospel element that I loved, and a big stomp section like 'We Will Rock You.' The verses just kind of spilled out, and I took Devin’s idea for the chorus and we strung it all together."
