Hillsong’s Benjamin Hastings says he battled mental health issues while writing new solo album

Singer and songwriter Benjamin Hastings, most known for his worship music with Hillsong United, is embarking on a solo music career and sharing vulnerable songs about the past season of his life.

Hastings, recently nominated for a Dove Award for “Worship Song of The Year,” spoke openly about his new solo venture while on the red carpet of the 2022 Dove Awards.

The upcoming self-titled LP, a collection of 25 songs, drops in November.
