BETHEL MUSIC'S "WE WILL NOT BE SHAKEN" AVAILABLE ON ITUNES RADIO NOW by Hoganson Media on 2015-01-27 15:31:30
Bethel Music, the worship ministry of Redding, CA-based Bethel Church, releases internationally with Provident Music Distribution its critically acclaimed We Will Not Be Shaken CD/DVD Jan. 27. The recording will also be available through digital retailers beginning Jan. 26. Prior to the release of the highly anticipated project, Bethel Music streams for the first time ever the entire new album through an exclusive ‘First Play’ on iTunes Radio: iTunesRadio.com/BethelMusic. Those that pre-order the album now through Sunday will receive two instant downloads, including the title track, which hit No. 1 on the Christian & Gospel iTunes Top Songs chart, and “Ever Be,” which continues to hold the No. 1 position on the iTunes Top Music Videos all genre chart.
In addition to the iTunes Radio stream that began earlier this week and runs through Tuesday, RELEVANT begins streaming the full album on its “The Drop” today and through Sunday. Last Friday, Bethel Music also premiered on its Facebook page for free the complete We Will Not Be Shaken film to over 25,000 Facebook fans from around the world. Recorded during an evening of worship on a mountaintop overlooking Shasta Lake north of Redding, the live album and DVD present 11 new songs led by the Bethel Music Artist Collective, including Brian Johnson, Jenn Johnson, Hunter Thompson, Amanda Cook and Matt Stinton, as well as debut artists Kalley Heiligenthal, Hannah McClure, Paul McClure, Jonathan David Helser and Melissa Helser.
The We Will Not Be Shaken album (produced by Bobby Strand and Chris Greely) and film (directed by Nathan Grubbs and Luke Manwaring) chronicle the sound and breath-taking visuals from a multi-camera shoot that includes aerial views from a drone aircraft’s camera flying overhead at this unique gathering.
Meant to be a catalyst for other worship communities to take hold of what it means to “not be shaken,” We Will Not Be Shaken’s title track was birthed in a spontaneous moment of worship on a Sunday morning service at Bethel. The song hails a message of promise amidst adversity and the victory believers have in Jesus, while the recording powerfully captures the track’s energy and declaration, inviting listeners to join in praise.
We Will Not Be Shaken has been named one of HearItFirst.com's most anticipated albums of 2015 while LouderThanTheMusic.com names Bethel Music “Artist of the Month.” CCM Magazine adds that there “is quite a bit of buzz surrounding the anticipated release from Bethel Music…and it’s all warranted. This is an album that simply soars above the rest… Every track holds a different aspect of beauty…flawless.” NewReleaseTuesday.com continues, saying the new album features “anointed lyrics that are both emotionally stirring and grounded in truth alongside musical atmospheres that quiet the soul while simultaneously clearing space for God to speak.” Christian Review Magazine says in its 5-star review that the album is an “out-and-out worship release on which each track contains lyrics that praise and glorify God, and point toward His faithfulness, love and grace.”
