Multi-platinum-selling Christian music powerhouse and chart leading Hillsong UNITED is gearing up for their sixth full-length studio album titled Wonder, set to be unveiled in all music stores on June 9th. "Have we lost the Wonder?" asked Joel Houston, front man for the modest Australia-born band that has since become an international phenomenon.
Explaining intrinsically what it means further, Houston continues, "The hope, the imagination to dream, to believe, the tenderness to listen and lead first with mercy, the grace to empathize, the courage to trust, the fearlessness to love without pretense or condition. To see beyond the facts without dismissing them. To respond beyond the fear without reciprocating it. To sing beyond the noise, without adding to it. This is the challenge, and this is what worship— if worship can be summed up as an expression of art and music and story— is ultimately designed to do. To elevate the conversation, re-awaken the soul to something other, and lift our eyes to the wonder of a superlative truth."
For all those who pre-order the new record now comes two instant grats on iTunes and Spotify for songs "Wonder" and "Splinters and Stones." Listen to the latter track and sing along with the official lyric video below.
