Grammy-Award-winning artist Chris Tomlin is releasing a final track ahead of the launch of his new worship project ALWAYS, out on September 9. “O Lord, You’re Beautiful” feat. Steffany Gretzinger is available today with the album pre-order HERE.
The album contains 13-tracks, all of which were co-written by Chris except for the beloved classic “O Lord, You’re Beautiful” written by Keith Green. Chris’ enthusiasm for the craftmanship of the song runs deep. “This project is all about helping people have an encounter with God through worship and this next song we are releasing, “O Lord, You’re Beautiful” with my dear friend Steffany Gretzinger, is a song that for me personally, does just that…” shared Chris. “During the pandemic I started to do church at home with my girls, and each Sunday we would gather around the piano and worship as a family. Very quickly this song, written decades ago by the legendary Keith Green, became an anthem for us and soon became the catalyst for this record. I don’t often record covers, but I am so excited to come behind and champion a song as powerful as this one is for the church.”
Chris performed the album’s title-track radio single “Always” live for the first time on the “Tomlin UNITED tour” (a Pollstar Top 10 Worldwide tour) this spring. The song is a nod to Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.” The song’s official live video was filmed during Chris’ annual “Good Friday Nashville” concert event and premiered exclusively with Facebook.
