Blackout, the newest album from Bethel Music’s Steffany Gretzinger, is set to release on March 30. Known for leading thousands in corporate worship with powerful vocals, Gretzinger's latest project sheds light on her vulnerable, less-visible side. With songs for the “in-between moments in life” that often shape us, Blackout heralds the message that even when circumstances bend towards chaos, light that shines from the inside out cannot be dimmed.
“It’s about being able to joyfully dance as tears stream down your face, knowing that life comes through learning to grieve and celebrate at the same time,” said Gretzinger.
The title track was born out of a place of self-discovery for Gretzinger. Navigating, each moment as choice to be vulnerable and present, “Blackout” gives an image to the light that penetrates the dark.
“You can’t turn out a light shining from the inside. We’re living in a blackout. The day is dark, but the light shines the brightest in the darkness. If there was ever a time for us to shine, it’s now. If we’re really going to be The Light Of The World, we have to know who we are in God," shared Gretzinger. "It is possible to learn to dance while the tears stream down our faces, to stay connected to the One who made us. If we understand that we are made of light, then we can’t be threatened with darkness.”
