If you have been following me on social media, then you were with me on the glorious countdown to TODAY! If you DON’T follow me, you should. I’m easy to find. My twitter and Instagram feed is simply @jayethomasmusic.
But the day has FINALLY ARRIVED!!! I thought Tues Sept 9 would NEVER get here! This album release is a big deal for a number of reasons:
1. I haven’t released a full length album since 2001.
2. It’s a first for Forerunner Music/IHOPKC in the gospel/worship genre.
So if you pre-ordered the album then you got to hear one track before it was released officially. In either regard I want to give you a little behind the scenes look at the making of the the album.
While it is LIVE (recorded at Onething 2012 and 2013). I took the best moments from both years and combined them into one so that it feels like one night of continual worship. In the making of this album I didn’t want it to be songs that were mostly unfamiliar that you simply listened to until you knew the songs. I wanted it to be one that you could turn on the first time and immediately SING WITH. So there are 5 cover songs and 7 originals written by me and others in The Cry.
The question I often am asked is “Is it really ‘LIVE’?” The answer is YES! It really is. However, though I won’t give away all the production secrets, i will tell you that everything that happens “live” wouldn’t be enjoyed so there has been some cleaning up to make it enjoyable. So if you here mistakes on the album… GOOD. I wanted them to be there so you could experience raw worship -the good, bad and ugly. 🙂 You’re welcome.
I’m excited for you to hear it! Please spread the word and buy a copy for a friend! Let’s make Jesus famous!
