"Inspired by the parable of the Prodigal Son in Luke 15, we believe Homecoming is an invitation to return to who we truly are as sons and daughters." - Bethel Music. Homecoming, the new album from Bethel Music, invites listeners to return to the One who waits with open arms, ready to embrace His children with complete love
“When it came time to do this album, I wanted to capture songs that remind us of the true meaning of Christmas. Emmanuel, God with us. If there was ever a time that we needed to be reminded that God is with us, it is now and that is the spirit behind this third Christmas record. My prayer is that God uses these songs to touch lives for generations and reminds us that He is close to us.”
"A Beautiful Life" was written by Pappas, Aodhan King, Benjamin Hastings, and Michael Fatkin, who also produced the track. “Sometimes we need a reminder that life is indeed beautiful. If it wasn't, we'd get saved and *whip* straight to heaven. Instead, there's a life to be lived, relationships to be built and beauty to behold. I hope this song would serve as a reminder of all that is ahead for you.” “‘K.O.' is a call to action and a key to contentedness," Pappas explains. "Despite our present circumstances, we’re all equipped to move forward, but allowing yourself the understanding resolution doesn’t always happen overnight. The difference is setting your sights on the destination and knowing it begins with taking the first step. Today that might be telling yourself you’re gonna be OK.”
“I pray that these songs encourage us, allow God's spirit to work within us, and remind everyone of the truth of His love.” The timely 6-song EP speaks to the reality of God’s presence with us and the importance of our connections with one another.
"Just like the songs that have lived and continued to capture the hearts of multiple generations, our heartbeat as songwriters is to pen lyric and melody that does the same." Purchase the MultiTracks from this session today!
“In the song, ‘Get Out of the Way of Your Own Heart,’ the lyric of the bridge encourages: Take yourself down off the line, give yourself a little grace. A lot of this new album is me trying to express and process feeling a little subpar and trying to allow myself to feel OK and to be a little nicer to myself.”
