"Mako and I are so happy to share this new version of 'Lose You Now' with everyone," says Stirling. "We've always known this song was special but seeing the way it's been connecting with fans and listeners all across the world has been beyond expectations. We thought an acoustic version that strips it down to its beautiful and raw core could reach people in a whole new way. Creating 'Lose You Now' and its music video brought me peace and I'm so glad that we have been able to share that healing with everyone, especially with what we all have been going through this past year."
