Dove-Award winning and Grammy- Nominated band, Bethel Music, formed out of Bethel Church in California in 2001. Bethel has released 14 albums to date as well as carrying 11 Dove Awards. "Revival's In The Air" is the 15th live recording from the powerhouse group.
The album, executive produced by Brian Johnson and Joel Taylor, included assistant producers David Whitworth, John-Paul Gentile, and Matthew Ogden. The album theme discusses sturdy faith in the unfailing promises of God. The album, comprised of 17 tracks, includes a superstar lineup of songwriters including but not limited to, Cory Asbury, Josh Baldwin, Matt Redmen, Phil Whickam, and many more.
"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," said Brian Johnson . "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 continued. "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."
Bethel Music has so far debuted three singles from the live worship experience: beginning with “God of Revival,” led by Brian and Jenn Johnson; Cory Asbury’s “Egypt,” a celebration of God’s faithfulness; and “We Praise You,” led by Brandon Lake, 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.
In addition to touring and ministering globally, Bethel Music hosts the annual Heaven Come Conference; a one-week Bethel Music Worship Conference held on the campus of Bethel Church; and songwriting retreats in a personal setting with experienced writers. WorshipU, Bethel Music's online school of worship, offers ongoing teaching and training programs at worshipu.com.
