Well, I’m really in the day between releasing the record and playing the next show on tour. I just wanted to thank everyone who bought the new record, either on release day or pre-ordered. I really appreciate your support and you being a part of our community. I have enjoyed already hearing from some of you and look forward to more. I’m supposed to tell you to post a review on iTunes or Amazon or something if you want to. Okay, business is out of the way.
So we’re definitely looking forward to heading out to NC, OH, and KY this weekend. The tour has been great and we’re excited about what God is going to continue to do. We’ll get back into promises later this week as our tour devos continue. We’re headed into the life of Moses this week. Please continue to pray for the tour and the record and the lives of everyone involved. We are excited about this next season in ministry whatever it may look like. Hope to see you on the road. Hope to hear from you here.
Hey everyone, it’s Todd. The new record comes out today. I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who prayed us through this process. It was definitely a difficult one. I am looking forward to hearing people’s thoughts and reactions now that the record is finally out. I hope you will share yours, maybe in a comment at the bottom of this blog. If you don’t know much about the record, it’s called NEED and it kind of has three themes running through the record: things we think we need, things we really need, and the strange but beautiful idea that all the things we really need are found in Christ.
First, I would like to thank everyone who has been onto iTunes already this morning. Of course, the first single that has already been available, ‘Joy Unspeakable’, is the most downloaded. But the second is ‘Higher Ground’. That really touched me. It’s been one of my favorites for some time. I also look forward to hearing your thoughts on ‘Give Me Jesus’, another favorite of mine.
Actually I can’t wait to hear what you think of all the songs. Well, what God shows you, how He moves in your heart. That’s why we do this, and I look forward to his move. The other additional iTunes comment is that there are 3 bonus songs on iTunes that are not on the CD for those of you that preordered or bought it in the stores. These songs are available for purchase on iTunes; you don’t have to buy the whole record. ‘The Way of the Cross’ is a personal favorite. It was so hard not to include it on the record. And ‘All The World’ is a bit of the funky side that you may have become used to hearing from me. ‘All That I Have’ wasn’t my favorite bonus track but hopefully some of you will like it. Anyway, I hope to hear from you guys as you experience the new project. Thanks for listening.
I just want to say Hi to everyone who spent the week at Glorieta with us. It was a great week. It’s actually not over yet. You guys are at breakfast, and I’m writing this before we head to the last session. But anyway, thanks for worshipping with us this week. I wanted you to know where all the songs came from this week in case you wanted to go buy the CDs or get them on iTunes.
