Nashville, TN (February 14, 2020)
Worship artist Phil King has released his first single, “Song of Redemption,” from his full-length label debut album, All Glory, which is set to release March 6. The single is at digital and streaming outlets globally, including Apple Music, iTunes, Spotify, YouTube Music, Google Music, Pandora, Deezer and more.
“Song of Redemption” was recorded live Nov. 8 at Christ for the Nations Institute in Dallas, produced by UPPERROOM’s director Matt Fish (Jeremy Riddle, Jason Upton, Leeland) and co-written by UPPERSOOM’s Hanna Sheets.
“This song carries an incredible message of how when people’s eyes are first opened to their sin, there is initially remorse and sadness,” says King, “but then God hears, just around the corner, an incredible sound of worship and thanksgiving rising from them because He is going to redeem them through the answer of His Son Jesus‘ death, burial and resurrection.”
When I was an outcast You said I belong
You wrote a melody with all of my wrongs
When my eyes were opened to all I had done
I saw my sin, but You heard a song
Glorify His name forever
It is Jesus, it is Jesus
You have turned it all around
(“Song Of Redemption, first verse and chorus)
Also released is a companion “Song of Redemption” video that is available to stream now on YouTube. King’s upcoming All Glory includes Revelation 4 and 5 inspired songs like the title track, “Greater Realms of Glory” (co-written with Michael Farren), “Deliverance” (co-written with Ethan Hulse and David Moore and featuring guest vocals by Gateway’s Lauren Mwonga), “Banner” (co-written with Oscar Gamboa and Cody Ray Lee and featuring guest vocals by UPPERROOM’s Joel Figueroa), “So Worthy,” “Our Great God” and more. Every song on All Glory is uniquely singable with messages that are meant to resonate and be remembered by congregations around the world.
“God is looking for true worshippers; people who worship in the Spirit and in truth,” King says, quoting John 4:23. “My hope is that these simple songs help in that process. I feel this burden to always keep pointing people to Jesus.”
