Brentwood, TN  (January 10, 2020)
A key Christian music songwriter for today’s church, multi-GRAMMY Award® and GMA Dove Award®-winning singer, songwriter, and worship leader Matt Redman announces the release of Let There Be Wonder due out on January 31, 2020. The highly anticipated album, Redman’s 14th career project and his first with Integrity Music, is now available for pre-order. With each advance order, the songs “The Same Jesus” and “We Praise You” are available as instant downloads.

In advance of the album release, Matt has posted a live video for “We Praise You” featuring Brandon Lake.

While preparing for this 12-song collection, all of the songs united into one principal topic: Jesus. Redman shares, “One theme that shone through so strongly on this record was the name and character and story of Jesus. I think there’s a need in our society and in church to absolutely name Him, to not just speak generically about who God is but to put a name on Him and to declare it and to say it – to sing the name of Jesus.”

Starting off with more than 50 songs, along with album producers Jacob Sooter and Joshua Silverberg, Redman dauntingly narrowed it down to the featured dozen. Writing all of the songs, he also collaborated with key writers and friends such as Sooter and Silverberg, Phil Wickham, Hillsong’s Joel Houston, Jason Ingram, Pat Barrett, Corey Voss, Andi Rozier (Vertical Church Band), Jon Guerra, and Brandon Lake, who also appears on the project along with Evan Craft.

Recorded in front of more than 1,000 people at Free Chapel in Orange County, California, “Let There Be Wonder encapsulates a lot of what has been in my heart when it comes to worship in these last few years,” he continues. “Worship songs will never be able to paint the full picture of God’s glory, but it’s so important that we aim high and give our best effort to conveying Him as fully as we can. When we do this, it’s much more honouring to God, and it’s much more helpful for us. My hope and prayer for this new record is that we’d find ourselves caught up in the life-giving worship of the true and living God. Let there be wonder!”

“We Praise You” Lyrics:

Let praise be a weapon that silences the enemy
Let praise be a weapon that conquers all anxiety
Let it rise, let praise arise
We sing Your name in the dark and it changes everything
We sing with all we are and we claim Your Victory
Let it rise, let praise arise

We’ll see You break down every wall,
We’ll watch the giants fall
Fear cannot survive when we praise You
The God of breakthrough’s on our side,
Forever lift Him high
With all creation cry,
“God we praise You”

Let faith be the song that overcomes the raging sea
Let faith be the song that calms the storm inside of me
Let it rise, let faith arise

This is what living looks like, this is what freedom feels like
This is what heaven sounds like, we praise You, we praise You
This is what living looks like, this is what freedom feels like
This is what heaven sounds like, we praise You, we praise You
