Internationally recognized praise band Planetshakers globally releases Christmas Chill, Vol. 1 today (Nov. 24) from Venture3Media (V3M). The 5-track instrumental EP is available now at all major digital and streaming outlets via https://planetshakers.
Written and produced by Joth Hunt, the EP features instrumental versions of the Christmas classics “O Come All Ye Faithful,” “Silent Night” and “O Holy Night” along with a rendition of “Hark” and “All Glory” from Planetshakers’ latest full-production album for the season, It’s Christmas Live.
“Christmas is a time to reflect on the greatest gift of all, Jesus,” says Hunt. “Christmas Chill, Vol. 1 is meant to be a nostalgic soundtrack to remember God’s remarkable gift and to be played before the start of our Christmas services, as well as while doing all of our favorite traditional holiday things, like decorating the Christmas tree, sharing meals and during holiday gatherings.”
In addition to the audio, Planetshakers is streaming a YouTube video of all five Christmas Chill, Vol. 1 songs in a warm, festive setting with a live fireplace at https://youtu.be/JPvBwZDoVxs.
Earlier this month, Planetshakers also released Show Me Your Glory – Live At Chapel, a 12-song and 12-video project that was recorded live in-the-round and led by the band members singing along with Planetshakers Bible College students in their chapel. Recorded in a musically accessible way for smaller gatherings, the chapel album features 12 songs from full production album Show Me Your Glory released this past summer. Twelve of the 14 Show Me Your Glory songs were recorded live along with the voices of thousands attending the Show Me Your Glory Planetshakers Conference held in Melbourne, Australia. The album is meant to be a praise and worship musical journey.
