Matt Redman Announces New Album 'Lamb of God', Features in The Chosen TV Show
Matt Redman is a GRAMMY-Award winning worship leader and songwriter who has been a leading contributor to the global Church’s songbook over the last twenty years. He recently announced a new album, 'Lamb of God', with first single 'Son of Suffering'. The new project, Redman's 17th album, is expected to be the most unique and immersive experience he has done as an artist so far.
'Son of Suffering' was penned by Redman alongside worship leaders and writers David Funk (Bethel Music), Aaron Moses (Maverick City Music) and Nate Moore (Church of The City). It was recorded at the historic Mission San Juan Capistrano and encapsulates the mysterious beauty of the cost of Calvary.
Jonathan Brown, President of Integrity Music, says: "It is such an honor and delight for us to champion Matt Redman in his collaboration with The Chosen, and being able to communicate the wonder of Jesus’ love and his solidarity with us in our own pain. Matt's song 'Son of Suffering' encapsulates the mysterious beauty of Christ's blood and tears, and it mirrors the beautiful mission of The Chosen. 'Son of Suffering' carries Matt’s passion to find new ways of singing about the eternally glorious theme of the cross of Christ, and we are so grateful for the opportunity to share this collaboration with the world."
'Son of Suffering' brings remembrance to the Church that Jesus didn’t just look down upon the world’s pain but came down and met us in our struggle. A sense of divine acquaintance with grief and suffering shines through the song, painting a worshipful picture of Jesus’ humility and compassion. The Chosen is the free show that tens of millions of people won't stop talking about. A stirring and humorous drama, The Chosen creates an authentic and intimate picture of Jesus’ life and ministry, seen through the eyes of the people who knew him. The series has garnered praise from both critics and fans for its historical and biblical accuracy, playful spirit, and disruptive impact.
Currently, Season 3 can be watched on The Chosen app up to Episode 6. The Season Finale (Episodes 7 & 8) will be available to watch at special cinema events beginning on Thursday, 2 February 2023, in cinemas around the US, UK and Ireland, Australia, New Zealand.
Matt Redman’s new album ‘Lamb of God’ focusses in on the centrality of the cross - inviting us to behold both the beauty and the cost of Calvary. Echoing Redman’s longtime pursuit to blend both the ancient and the modern in our worship, these new songs were recorded live at the Mission in San Capistrano, California - a house of worship first established in 1776.
As Redman comments, “Seeing these brand-new songs come to life among these ancient ruins was such a powerful moment - one that I will never forget. I’ve been privileged to record in some iconic settings over the years - including Abbey Road studios in London and Capitol Records in LA. But this setting at the Mission was extra special - ‘Lamb of God’ is honestly the most profound album recording I’ve ever been a part of.”
