Mosaic MSC will make their Capitol CMG debut with their fourth album HUMAN on May 15th. This live recording is their first since 2016’s Glory & Wonder and features all new original songs previously only heard at Mosaic, the Los Angeles-based church where the group was formed. HUMAN is an eight-track album that embodies the heartbeat of humanity through music and performance and was recorded over the course of two nights in Hollywood, CA. The production presents a representation of the diverse artistic community with rotating vocalists, a 6-piece band, 40-person choir, and an audience of a thousand all from different cultural and social backgrounds. HUMAN is available for pre-order now.
“I love the name of this album, HUMAN. Every time we talked about the title it always looked to me more like a question: What makes us human? Or how can I be more human?” shares Carlos Pimentel, songwriter and member of Mosaic MSC. “It’s interesting that we are in a season where staying at home and away from people is the best thing we can do to help one another. We need each other. It is part of what makes us better and what makes us human. This is one of the beautiful things about this album and the timing of it. These songs were created by a bunch of friends in one room together and now it’s going to be heard by a lot of people in different places physically away from each other. This is us reminding the world ‘YOU ARE NOT ALONE’. This is a look to the future and the hope that tomorrow will be better. The future of humanity will be different but we will not be alone. We will be together.”
As part of this announcement Mosaic MSC has also released “Dreams,” a track of gratitude which encapsulates the simplicity of their message. Fans who pre-order HUMAN will also receive an instant download of “Dreams.” Watch the video for “Dreams” above.
“We were so careful and intentional with every lyric, because we hope it resonates on a universal level” shares Mariah McManus. “We wanted HUMAN to be the best thing we’ve ever done and I’m really proud of how it came together. We hope you take away a feeling of inclusion and knowledge that there’s beauty in who they were made to be.”
From the opening, “Everlasting Light,” to the closing song “You Never Fail Me (All My Life)” Mosaic MSC’s music celebrates the beauty of being human and all that comes with it. The first single from HUMAN, “Fountain (I Am Good),” uniquely demonstrates the energy and musicianship of the culturally diverse group and captures their larger-than-life sound. The track, which has been heard over half a million times across streaming services in the three weeks since it was released, is now available.
