Matt Redman Drops Deluxe New Single ‘Upon Him‘
Worship music veteran Matt Redman releases the deluxe version of ‘Upon Him‘. This deluxe single includes a brand new live version, acoustic version and a single version of the song.
Originally presented on his latest album ‘Let There Be Wonder’, this song cleverly reflects the perfect love of Jesus, who carried our sins on Calvary and carries us in the palm of His hand.
“Christ has died, we are forgiven. And Christ alive, we are the risen”
Let There Be Wonder is Redman’s 14th career project and his first with Integrity Music. Redman shares that whilst preparing for this 12-song collection the theme that shone through so strongly was the name, character, and story of Jesus: “I think there’s a need in our society and in church to absolutely name Him, to not just speak generically about who God is but to put a name on Him and to declare it and to say it – to sing the name of Jesus.”
Starting off with more than 50 songs, along with album producers Jacob Sooter and Joshua Silverberg, Redman dauntingly narrowed it down to the featured dozen. Writing all of the songs, he also collaborated with key writers and friends such as Sooter and Silverberg, Phil Wickham, Hillsong’s Joel Houston, Jason Ingram, Pat Barrett, Corey Voss, Andi Rozier (Vertical Church Band), Jon Guerra, and Brandon Lake, who also appears on the project along with Evan Craft.
“Let There Be Wonder encapsulates a lot of what has been in my heart when it comes to worship in these last few years,” he continues. “Worship songs will never be able to paint the full picture of God’s glory, but it’s so important that we aim high and give our best effort to conveying Him as fully as we can. When we do this, it’s much more honouring to God, and it’s much more helpful for us. My hope and prayer for this new record is that we’d find ourselves caught up in the life-giving worship of the true and living God. Let there be wonder!”
