Multi-platinum selling and award-winning group, Hillsong UNITED announces the release of their highly anticipated album, PEOPLE. Slated to debut worldwide on April 26, the live project with twelve new songs is available for preorder today and features the brand new single “Another in the Fire” (listen to and watch the song here). In addition, “So Will I (100 Billion X),” one of UNITED’s biggest songs to date, has been certified Gold by RIAA with over 108 million career streams.
Returning to their roots, to where it all began, PEOPLE pays homage to the group’s core mission; unity… a simple, yet most powerful message that’s needed in the world today more than ever.
“The hope for the project is simply understanding the power of music as a means of bringing people together, and letting it serve as a reminder that in our culture––the call to love our neighbor is a revolutionary act that perhaps rings louder now than ever.” says UNITED’s Joel Houston. “If there's one thing that music can do better than anything else on earth, is its innate ability to unify people. It’s the essence at the heart of what UNITED has always been about––and what we want this project to represent more than anything––bringing people together, from every different walk of life, with all our differing experiences, circumstances, and perspectives––and finding songs that give us reason to sing as individuals with a common voice.”
Recorded live in Sydney, Australia, PEOPLE features three previously released tracks, including "As You Find Me," “Good Grace,” and “Whole Heart (Hold Me Now).” Debuting in December 2018, “Good Grace” set the record as UNITED’s highest streaming street week career single, which “Whole Heart” subsequently broke by an increase of 12% upon its release in January 2019. Their latest song "As You Find Me" has already garnered 8.2+ million global streams/YouTube views to date, while “Whole Heart” and “Good Grace” have amassed over 31.8+ million global streams (including YouTube views) collectively.
In support of their new music, Hillsong UNITED will return to the United States for the first time in nearly three years for their highly anticipated USA ‘The People Tour MMXIX.’ The arena circuit will kick off on April 25 in Austin, Texas and include stops in major markets across the nation before culminating at New York City’s Madison Square Garden on July 2. Tickets are on sale now at www.hillsongunited.com.
