Hillsong UNITED has just announced that their newest studio album, Wonder, is now available for pre-order. Joel Houston shares the heart behind the album, "“Have we lost the Wonder?—the hope, the imagination to dream, to believe, the tenderness to listen and lead first with mercy, the grace to empathise, the courage to trust, the fearlessness to love without pretence or condition. To see beyond the facts without dismissing them. To respond beyond the fear without reciprocating it. To sing beyond the noise, without adding to it. This is the challenge, and this is what worship—if worship can be summed up as an expression of art and music and story—is ultimately designed to do. To elevate the conversation, re-awaken the soul to something other, and lift our eyes to the wonder of a superlative TRUTH." We are excited to bring you the MultiTracks for the album's two pre-released tracks, "Splinters and Stones" which examines Jesus' incredible grace and love and "Wonder" which gives a bold testimony of the new perspective we gain when we encounter Christ and begin to walk in His light. Pre-order your copy of Wonder today on iTunes and you'll receive instant downloads of both "Splinters and Stones" and "Wonder." The album releases worldwide June 9.
Kentucky-based worship band Iron Bell Music has released their debut live album with Essential Worship, God That Saves. The band, which is comprised of Stephen McWhirter, Joel Gerdis and Josh Glauber, has been holding year-round worship nights for the community of Louisville at an area barn and it was during one of these nights that God That Saves was recorded. The album features 11 new songs including "God That Saves," which is currently being played on the radio and was written out of Stephen's personal testimony of his encounter with the Lord. Other tracks include "Free In You," a song that rejoices that God is the God of freedom and "Belong To You" which firmly declares that the enemy can't take away our identity as God's children. “We want the songs to literally cause breakthrough for people in their relationship with the Lord,” Joel shares. “Whatever God’s doing in us, we feel like it’s a very authentic expression that we can lead other people into.” God That Saves is now available on iTunes.

I’m so excited about this new album ... new songs, new sounds and new voices.

"King of Glory" is an upbeat new praise anthem from Louisiana-based ministry Bethany Worship. Psalms 24:7 says, "Open up, ancient gates! Open up, ancient doors, and let the King of glory enter." The team shares that "King of Glory" was birthed out of a vision of Jesus seated on an elevated throne in the midst of a great crowd of worshippers and it is a declaration that He lives in our hearts and is enthroned there by our praise. With great adoration, the song praises "King of Glory, come and enter in. Be seated on our praises. Majesty, come and take Your place. Be seated on our praises. Let Your glory come, let it fall on us. We are here for You, here for You. Let Your presence come, let it rest on us. This is all for You, all for You." Pick up your copy of "King of Glory" today on iTunes and incorporate the song into your setlists with the Original Master MultiTracks.

Contemporary Christian band Carrollton presents a message of honest faith and unwavering hope in God with powerful, faith-filled lyrics and driving beats in the album Sunlight and Shadows. “The message of what we’re doing is that we believe God is with us in the good and the bad, and often in the mundane in-between” lead vocalist Justin Mosteller explains about the project. “We’re trying to share that with people. We just want to put our hearts out there and see hope rise up.” We are now carrying the MultiTracks for the album's lead single, "Let Love Win" which proclaims the power of God's love and the call to show it to all the world. Justin shares, “We believe the love of Jesus is the only hope we have to break the chains of hate. ‘Let Love Win’ is a song of conviction that we wanted to sing night in and night out to remind ourselves what Jesus has called us to. We feel strongly that in all things love should be our first step and the only thing we shout.” MultiTracks are also available for "Tell Me" which declares our identity as beloved children of God and "Holding On To You" which speaks of our reliance on the Father.
