Matt Redman set to release new live recording

Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Matt Redman recently wrapped up production on his eighth album 10,000 Reasons to be released July 12th. Known for popular worship anthems such as “Blessed Be Your Name,” “Heart of Worship” and “Our God,” Redman recorded the live album in Atlanta during LIFT: A Worship Leader Collective, hosted by Passion City Church and sixstepsrecords.

“There’s something that happens in the worshipping, singing church that you don’t find anywhere else on the face of the earth,” Redman said in a press release. “I hope people end up hearing that on the album. It hopefully gives some life to the songs.”

Some of the notable co-writers on the project include Jason Ingram, Chris Tomlin, Matt Maher and Tim Wanstall.
