Grammy Award-winning band Switchfoot have shared “i need you (to be wrong),” the first new, original music from the rock band since 2019’s acclaimed studio album, Native Tongue.

Produced by Tony Berg (Phoebe Bridgers, Andrew Bird), “i need you (to be wrong)” questions what it means to be right and the importance of acknowledging one’s own blind spots.

Says the group’s frontman, Jon Foreman: “I began writing this song more than a decade ago, during a season of personal friction. Insecurity. Doubt. Fear. Inspired by the tale of Mr. Hyde, asking: Who can I trust? Who am I? Years later, the song remained as unfinished as the questions themselves, but it began speaking to us in ways that it never had before. And so we began the process of finishing it. And while we began to unpack the song, the song was unpacking us. Maybe our enemy is not ignorance, but the illusion of knowledge.”
