Hillsong United Releases Brand New Album 'Are We There Yet?'
Multi-award-winning and platinum-selling artist UNITED releases their brand-new album “Are We There Yet?” Recorded between Orange County, CA and Sydney Australia, the highly anticipated 15-track project includes previously released singles “Know You Will,” “Sure Thing” and “On Repeat,” which have collectively received over 50M global streams to date. In anticipation of the new album, UNITED unveiled three brand new songs from the compilation, including “Blown Away,” “God Song,” and “Show Me Your Heart,” along with a music video for “Blown Away” earlier this month.
“‘Are We There Yet?’ embodies the feeling of ‘all this future,’ says UNITED’s Joel Houston. “It is heavily entrenched in realizing, re-ideating, and repositioning heaven with songs birthed from a place of knowing that this part of the story is not the main part, and we have the gift of joy that is heaven no matter what our human experience is now. It’s hopeful, it feels like the sun going down on a really long day, and excitement about what tomorrow could bring even though the sun hasn’t come up yet. The journey of the album is set between the sun setting and rising. What you're leaving behind and what you're about to step into."
Adds Houston, “Wherever we are in this journey of life, we have eternity ahead of us, and may find ourselves often wondering when we will make it. ‘Are We There Yet?’ explores the challenges, heartache, and magnificence of this life of faith, and the jaw-dropping, overwhelming wonder of the grace of God.”
In conjunction with their new album, fans can catch UNITED on the multi-city co-headline Tomlin UNITED Tour that kicked off in San Diego to a packed house and has since played for thousands of fans in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Miami and Dallas. The 22-date run continues with shows set in major markets including Newark, Washington D.C., Pittsburgh, and Chicago, before ending on June 17 at the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Heralded as one of the biggest Christian music tours of the year, the Tomlin UNITED Tour is an intimate night of worship, where fans can together experience some of the biggest songs that have shaped modern faith today.
