Revival’s In The Air—is the title of the 15th live recording from GRAMMY®-nominated, Dove Award-winning worship collective Bethel Music. The work is now released; available at all digital outlets.
Continuing the genre of Spirit-led recordings that are the hallmark sound of Bethel Music, Revival’s In The Air was recorded live at Bethel Church in Redding, California.
The 17-track project showcases Bethel Music’s renowned collection of songwriters and worship leaders, including Brian and Jenn Johnson, Cory Asbury, Jonathan David and Melissa Helser, Josh Baldwin, Kristene DiMarco, Paul and Hannah McClure, Brandon Lake, Bethany Wohrle and Dante Bowe. Additionally, Revival’s In The Air features songwriting contributions from such leading names as Matt Redman, Phil Wickham, Leslie Jordan (All Sons & Daughters), Ben Fielding (Hillsong Worship), Rita Springer and Ethan Hulse, among others.
"The last two years we’ve been through a lot of really difficult things as a community, but we have felt the presence of God so strongly through it all," Brian Johnson says. "We started our new album during all of this and have watched the Lord guide us through each stage of the process. This album began with a theme, 'God of Revival.' Although we changed things as we tried our best to follow what He was saying, we always came back to REVIVAL."
"Then COVID-19 happened," he continues. "Although this time has been difficult in many ways, we’ve watched God move, disrupt and REVIVE—in family time, the global spread of the Church in homes, personal awareness of what we need to work on, priority checks, a worldwide reset, fresh hunger and total dependence on God. Through this shaking, people are being awakened. REVIVAL is in the air."
"We don’t know what you’re going through right now, but you are not alone and God is working all around you," Jenn Johnson adds. "We love you and pray this album awakens your heart and lights your soul on fire for more of God."
Executive produced by Bethel Music co-founder Brian Johnson and CEO Joel Taylor, with assistant producers David Whitworth, John-Paul Gentile and Matthew Ogden, the album is a declaration of steadfast faith in the promises of God.
Bethel Music has debuted three singles from the recording to date: album opener “God of Revival,” led by Brian and Jenn Johnson; Cory Asbury’s “Egypt,” a celebration of God’s faithfulness; and the Brandon Lake-led “We Praise You,” speaking peace in the midst of panic and uncertainty. The project’s highly anticipated fourth single is set to bow later this week, followed by one new song each day beginning May 24 until the album’s release.
