Elim Sound have just released second single 'Still God', taken from their forthcoming new album 'ONE' which is released on March 30th. The new single features Ian Yates and was written by Lucy-Rose Garnish (Birmingham), Mark Stone (Halifax) and Ian Yates (Liverpool).
Describing 'Still God', Elim Sound said, "It's an honest song about pain, hurt and anxiety. It started off as an honest conversation with the writers sharing some of their recent struggles. The song starts with an honest, psalm like question. ‘When will this morning break? this darkness seems to have no dawn’. Yet the heartbeat of ‘Still God’ is that even when our faith is torn, when we are hurting and experiencing pain, God is still God and there is always hope. He holds on to us in every circumstance."
The new album is Elim Sound's most collaborative release to date. Nearly two years in the making, this project began by gathering many writers together over two sessions in both Malvern and London. With over 90 song ideas for this album and with 28 writers involved, the team chose the final album tracks through a feedback process.
'ONE' features 15 new songs that have come from 19 different writers. These new Elim Sound writers include Chris and Abby Eaton, Mark Stone, Lucy Rose Garnish, Suzanne Hanna and Fiona Crow. Elim Sound also brought in some new voices on the project, including Alex Davis (Cardiff), Shell Perris (Malvern) and Nathan Jess (Portadown, Ireland). The album title was inspired by Elim’s theme for 2018 ‘One movement - One mission. 'One' was produced by Ian Yates, engineered and mixed by Trevor Michael and mastered by Geoff Pesche at Abbey Road.
