Brand New – Matthew West
“The title ‘Brand New’ does represent where I find myself these days,” explains Matthew West about his upcoming release. “Signing with a new label, starting my own management company, building a new songwriting house and studio called The Story House, and with that, a flood of new songs. But the title really has an even deeper meaning than just a representation of where I’m at in my career. ‘Brand New’ is actually inspired by the idea of looking back, or what’s more, going back. In many ways this is an album about returning to the days when I was a new Christian, and my faith felt fresh and alive.” As with some of West’s previous albums, his upcoming project will include songs inspired by others’ stories, such as “Too Young Too Soon,” which focuses on the issue of teen suicide. Several songs from the album have already been released, including “The God Who Stays,” as well as “What If,” and “Truth Be Told.”
Grace Is On Our Side – Vertical Worship
Following the success of their 2019 release, Bright Faith, Bold Future, Vertical Worship follows up with a brand-new live album to be released in February of 2020. The band’s breakout single, “Yes I Will”, has seen success in churches worldwide and has been a top 3 hit on radio. Vertical Worship, the worship ministry of Harvest Bible Chapel in Chicago, IL, recorded this project live at the church’s Rolling Meadows campus.
