Bethel Music, the worship ministry of Redding, CA-based Bethel Church, releases TIDES LIVE internationally today (Feb. 25) through Fuel Distribution. The recording features Jenn Johnson leading the radio hit, “Chasing You,” Brian Johnson leading “Forever,” Jeremy Riddle on “Heaven’s Song,” and eight more songs of worship of praise led by additional Bethel Music worship leaders Steffany Frizzell Gretzinger, William Matthews, Matt Stinton and Hunter G K Thompson. For the next two weeks, the album may be purchased for the special low price of $4.99 at iTunes® (http://georiot.co/DUa).
The new live album follows Bethel Music’s first-ever studio album, TIDES, which released Sept. 3, 2013 and went on to become the biggest retail debut ever for the worship ministry, hitting No. 1 on the overall Top Christian/Gospel Albums and Praise & Worship Billboard retail charts amidst unprecedented international acclaim. As Bethel Music led the songs from TIDES during its weekend services and regional gatherings, the music came to life on a new level and Bethel decided to push “record.” The resulting recordings birthed TIDES LIVE.
“The new live album offers a fresh and powerful perspective on these songs, and draws listeners into a worship experience full of spontaneous moments and sounds of praise,” says Joel Taylor, Director of Bethel Music. “Listeners are invited to step into the moments and momentum of TIDES LIVE, and participate in an authentic worship experience from one community to another.”
