Our God (Remixed)

A very different way of doing Chris Tomlin’s “Our God”, a cool version me thinks

Electric – Atmosphere

Those lovely people at worshipcentral have created another instructional video to help any electric guitarists/budding ones on how to create atmosphere in between songs/during slower songs etc…

2 other new albums

As well as “King of Nations” ┬ábeing released (and the already mentioned Soul Survivor 2010 “Light the Sky”) there are 2 other hotly anticipated albums out this week

Chris Tomlin’s new album “And if our God is for us” will be sure to be a big seller worldwide. Listened to it once through and there’s been an attempt to try and have a different sound to previous albums. The addition of strings to the title track “Our God” is nice, and the onerepublic-esque “I will follow” is interesting. I’m sure you’ll make up your own minds of what you think of it. Spotify link here



Another potential big release is Brenton Brown’s “Our God is near”. Another songwriter who’s aim is to be very congregation focused, Brenton has written some cracking songs and I’m sure there’s some waiting to be played on this album too. Spotify link here




Ones to watch out for: Hillsong Chapel (acoustic album) “Yahweh”, ┬áthe sure to be anthemic Jesus Culture “Come Away”


King of Nations

Following on from the last post, you can now listen to the whole new Newday album “King of Nations” on spotify! Some brilliant new songs that are aching to be introduced. Check them out here

Psalm 40

Also released on Monday is the new Newday album “King of Nations”. A good mixture of some new songs and old faves. The Newday blog is currently giving away “Psalm 40” away for free. I’m loving the synth and drum intro… grab it here
