Brian Johnson had an interview with Marcus Hathcock, the editor-in-chief of NewReleaseToday.When Hathcock questioned him about how the album's title and the imagery of the album cover came about, he responded saying:
I didn't arrive at it, actually. Some of our team members did. Actually I had a dream, though. I had a dream about turning tides. A lot of it, though, has to do with the season we're in. There's been a lot of coming, a lot of going with people—a totally different, shifting kind of season. I guess that's the creative way of saying what that season was. We had the idea last-minute to take the whole team to the coast and do the photo shoot at the water.
– Brian Johnson, NewReleaseToday
In an interview with Sharefaith Magazine, Jenn Johnson spoke of the album having its origins in an encounter she had on a mountaintop,saying:
I had an encounter with the Lord on a mountaintop. I had been in a kind of a fog, just struggling to gain a breakthrough with some things. It was a difficult time. Ministry is fun, but can also be a challenge. I went on to this mountain and spoke to the Lord: 'God I know you're with me, but please come closer. Let me feel you; let me know what to do.' ... He sorted me out, He gave me clarity. I went from just knowing he was with me, to being able to feel him with everything I am.
– Jenn Johnson, Sharefaith Magazine
Jenn Johnson went on to add that the experience birthed the song "I Can Feel You".
The song "Chasing You", featuring Jenn Johnson's vocals, impacted Christian radio on September 6, 2013 as the lead single of the album.
