Seattle, WA/Minneapolis, MN (February 8, 2021)
In partnership with BEC Recordings, River Valley Worship has announced The Ensemble Project, its newest release, out February 12. The first song to drop from the album, “Shadows // Spotlights,” is available now on all digital platforms.
The Ensemble Project entails new versions of five songs from their acclaimed 2020 release Altars. The group shares, “This project is stripped back in instrumentation and production but filled with passion and energy! It gave us the opportunity to reimagine some of our favorite songs from our album Altars, and we wanted to bring a new sound, a new perspective, a new reflection of our church to this project while keeping the powerful message of these songs. In many ways, the truth of these songs is clearer than ever.”
