The powerful song reminds people that the day of Christ's return is drawing near, and that their remaining time on Earth should be used to lead others to Him. While the song starts slowly it builds urgency, highlighting the importance of sharing God's message of salvation with family, neighbors and friends, so that they too will reach Heaven's golden shore.
"'The Return' has such a powerful message about Christ's return and the fact that we need to work to win the lost," says Matt Rankin, Soul'd Out's founder and baritone singer. "I feel blessed to have written this song."
The song featuring Rankin (baritone), Dusty Barrett (tenor), Jason McAtee (lead) and Ian Owens (bass), meets the quartet's mission of creating inspirational gospel music that resonates with a wide audience and bridges generational gaps.
While this song falls more on the traditional side, it demonstrates that it doesn't matter if the song is traditional or progressive, Soul'd Out Quartet's vocal power has the ability to evoke emotion in listeners.

About Soul'd Out Quartet
In May of 2004, in answer to God's call on his life, Matt Rankin of Georgetown, Ohio started a journey to find men of kindred spirits and equal yoking to partner with him in a mission to fulfill that calling by evangelizing God's word through song. Now, in 2013, Matt's calling and dream have been realized in Soul'd Out Quartet. Soul'd Out Quartet, which is comprised of Dusty Barrett (tenor), Jason McAtee (lead), Matt Rankin (baritone), Ian Owens (bass), is not only a vocal group continuing the heritage of Southern Gospel music, but is also and foremost a ministry team answering God's call as stated in Ephesians: He gave some apostles, and some prophets, and some evangelists, and some pastors, and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ. (Ephesians 4:11-13 KJV). In this spirit, Soul'd Out Quartet travels the country with a mission of evangelism and discipleship to not only win souls for Christ by telling the world "what the world doesn't know", but also to further strengthen and encourage God's people to be the salt and light to the world and ambassadors for Christ, that we are each called to be and to exhort God's people to be servants with hearts on fire!
