"'Build My Life' has become more than just a song I want to sing, but a theme that I want to ring true in my life," she shares. "He is the name above every other name, and He is worthy of turning over the trajectory of my life to Him.

Vertical Worship has released a brand new self-titled studio LP, following up on their 2016 release, Frontiers. For this latest album, Vertical Worship dove into their extensive song catalog and chose ten of their favorite songs that they found resonate well at their tour dates, conferences and events, as well as during church services. They went into the studio with re-imagined arrangements, experimenting with different leading vocalists while wanting to bring a new expression for these songs to reach new listeners. Worship leader Andi Rozier explains, “What’s so important to us in the writing of these songs is that we’re pulling from the word of God. What’s more powerful to ascribe worth to God than to also sing His word back to Him? That’s what we are doing with Vertical Worship, we are taking songs from His word, we’re taking the words that He’s given us, and we’re singing them back to Him.” If you are looking for some new arrangements of Vertical Worship favorites such as "Open Up the Heavens," "Spirit of the Living God," and "Lamb of God" you'll definitely want to get your hands on this new album.
