Bethel Music will release its highly anticipated and first-ever full-length studio recording, Tides, Sept. 3 with global distribution through Fuel Distribution / Tonetree Music, plus physical distribution in the U.S. to Christian stores through New Day.
The album features original songs and music led by senior worship pastors Brian and Jenn Johnson, and worship leaders Jeremy Riddle, Steffany Frizzell Gretzinger, William Matthews, Matt Stinton and Hunter Thompson, the album is an expression of passionate emotion, anthemic declaration, and sometimes surprising experimentation.
The album also addresses the popular maxim that “the only thing you can count on is change.” Brian Johnson’s answer is that there is one more thing you can count on. “Through it all,” he declares, “God is in control. Through the whole album, there’s struggle, there’s tension, but then there is a reminder that God is always in control.”
The lead single “Chasing You” from is a Jenn Johnson led pop song about following God with insatiable abandon. Here’s a brief clip of “Chasing You,” along with an inside look at the making of the song.
The group will be taking the music and message of Tides across the West Coast. Bethel Music’s “Night of Worship & Ministry” tour launches Sept. 5 in Anaheim, CA at Vineyard Church of Anaheim,Calif. and continues in Los Angeles (9/6), Las Vegas (9/7), Fairfield, CA (9/8), Portland (9/10), Seattle (9/11) and Vancouver, BC (9/12) before wrapping up in Kelowna, BC (9/13).
