|Switchfoot singles chronology|
"Your Love Is a Song" was written and recorded by the alternative rock band Switchfoot. It was first released as a single to the iTunes Store in Australia, and became the third radio single from the band's seventh studio album, Hello Hurricane.
"Your Love Is a Song" first came together as a collaboration between Switchfoot singer Jon Foreman and the hip hop producer Mike Elizondo. The band had arrived at a standstill in the recording process for Hello Hurricane, having recorded nearly 80 songs and needing an outside perspective to help "make sense of the mess we made", brought Elizondo into the process.
After some phone conversations with Foreman, the two got together and wrote "Your Love Is a Song."
A remix of the song was also released by Sven Kirchhof.
The song netted Switchfoot their first Adult Pop Songs charting song since "We Are One Tonight" entered the tally at No. 29 in 2006. "Your Love Is a Song" peaked at No. 27 and spent 15 weeks on the chart before falling off. It also fared well on the Christian Songs chart, reaching No. 18 and remaining on the chart for 19 weeks.
