Hillsong Young & Free released their brand-new EP "This Is Living" on Tuesday which features a track of the same name with Lecrae.

Taking on electronic dance music (EDM), Young & Free offers a glimpse at Hillsong Church's Youth Ministry with the new EP's lead track "This Is Living," available on Jan. 13.

"The wait is over! #ThisIsLiving is now available worldwide," the band wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.

In addition to Young & Free's trademark high-energy worship style, the group collaborated with Grammy Award-winner Lecrae on "This Is Living."

"For us it was a dream come true to collaborate with Lecrae who we not only love and respect as an artist, but as someone who is a strong voice for freedom to this generation," the Young & Free team said. "If anyone's message echoes the message of 'This Is Living,' it's Lecrae."

On Tuesday, Lecrae voiced his own excitement for the track's release, tweeting: "My friends @hillsongyandf just released their EP & I'm on the track #ThisIsLiving. Check it out here."

Meanwhile, the new Young & Free EP also includes a newly-recorded version of "Sinking Deep," which was first released on the group's debut album "We Are Young & Free." An acoustic version of "This Is Living" is also among the new album's songs. Rounding out track list for "This Is Living" are the songs "Energy" and "Pursue."

Ahead of Tuesday's release, Young & Free announced their collaboration with Lecrae via YouTube in a clip featuring the rapper.

"Hey what's goin' on? I'm Lecrae and I'm excited to tell you all about my friends Hillsong Young & Free's new EP 'This Is Living,'" Lecrae says in the video. "It's coming very soon, and I may or may not be a part of it. Make sure you go out and support Hillsong Young & Free 'This Is Living.' It's coming soon."
