Bethel Music, the worship ministry of Redding, CA-based Bethel Church is and first-ever full-length studio recording, TIDES on Sept. 3. Although it’s not released yet, the album launched to the top of the chart through the momentum of pre-orders being accepted now at iTunes.
TIDES also grabbed the No. 1 Christian and Gospel single position on iTunes with “Chasing You,” a Jenn Johnson led song about following God with insatiable abandon. The song is also releasing to radio early next month. While other artists have garnered significant airplay with their recordings of Bethel Music songs, “Chasing You” will be the first Bethel Music single to ever be serviced directly to radio.
Bethel Music was honored with two Gospel Music Association Dove Award nominations. The chart topping song, “One Thing Remains,” written by Bethel Music’s Brian Johnson and Jeremy Riddle, as well as Christa Black Gifford, gathered nominations for both “Song” and “Praise & Worship” Song of the Year.
“One Thing Remains” was originally featured on Bethel Music’s Be Lifted High (2011) and has more recently been covered by Kristian Stanﬁll.
