“Shine Gold Light” is being released for free exclusively on the site before the single’s commercial distribution on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Last.fm and every other major music service. Vocal and instrumental versions are both available for download. The guitar chords and lyrics are being published on the site as well.
The track features 4 part harmonies, acoustic guitar, drums, bass and strings. It was written, performed, produced and arranged by Dan O’Connor. The song has a sound similar to artists like Jars of Clay, Steven Curtis Chapman and Michael W. Smith.
Owner Dan O’Connor says “The lyrics were inspired by the Buddhist loving-kindess meditation. This meditation is a popular practice which begins with the meditator cultivating loving-kindness towards themselves, then one's loved ones, friends, teachers, strangers, enemies, and finally towards all sentient beings.”
