On Monday, Michelle Williams resurfaced online with a new gospel song called “If We Had Your Eyes,” which is the lead single from the singer's upcoming fourth studio album. The Harmony Samuels-produced cut seemingly showcases one of Michelle's best vocal performances to date.
On the mid-tempo record, she sings, "If we had your eyes, we’d see things right/ If we could just see from your point of view, then most things won’t be as they seem."
It's clear Michelle is happy to return to her spiritual roots, especially since the genre has previously earned her the top slot on Billboard's Gospel chart with the best-selling gospel album of 2002, her solo debut Heart to Yours.
"I am so thrilled about the incredible response to the ‘If We Had Your Eyes’ sneak peek so far, and to be finally bringing the song to you! Harmony and I had an amazing collaboration in creating this track, and I can’t wait for you to hear more," the former Destiny's Child member said in a statement.
Michelle's yet-to-be titled project will mark her third gospel LP. It also serves as her first studio effort in five years since her pop-inspired disc, Unexpected.
Michelle is expected to perform during the Essence Festival’s Get Lifted All Star Gospel Tribute honoring Donnie McClurkin and Tramaine Hawkins on July 7.
In addition, fans can chat with the singer during her Ustream Q&A session on Tuesday, June 25 at 8 p.m ET.
“If We Had Your Eyes” is available for download on iTunes.
