As a member of the praise team at my church, I truly love the worship music on Passion albums. I’m always excited when we play one of their songs when I’m on the schedule. Because I love worship music and Passion’s worship music in particular, I was so excited when I was selected to review the new album by PASSION, entitled Salvation’s Tide Is Rising! The artists that are often featured on Passion albums are pretty incredible, so gathering them all together on albums makes it amazing. When I heard that Passion was releasing a new album on my birthday this year, I was very excited to hear it and learn more about it.
Before I tell you about the new album, let me tell you about Passion. The Passion Movement and the messages of founder Louie Giglio have marked the lives of millions of people around the globe, calling people everywhere to live for the glory of God. From its inception, the movement of Passion has birthed new anthems of worship, influencing countless churches and helping to define the current worship climate and establish artists Chris Tomlin, David Crowder, Matt Redman, Christy Nockels, Kristian Stanfill, Charlie Hall, and the Passion Band. Other artists that have performed at Passion Gatherings in the past are: Brett Younker, Lecrae, Hillsong United, Jesus Culture, Kari Jobe, Tenth Avenue North, Shane and Shane, SonicFlood, Gungor, and Rend Collective.
Since the first release in 1998, Passion albums have sold over 1.3 million units while introducing the church to worship songs like “Our God”, “Holy Is The Lord”, “How Great Is Our God”, and “God Of This City”. Passion is coming off its best charting radio success in 5 years with the single “Even So Come”, which went Top 5.
Now I’ll tell you about the new album. I was going to try and pick one song I liked best and share everything about it, but as I suspected, I love the whole album. Because I couldn’t pick a favorite song, I thought I’d give you an opportunity to listen to the title song, Salvation’s Tide is Rising:
This particular album has less tracks than past Passion albums, and was recorded in studio rather than live at the conference. It’s kind of nice that they didn’t put 500 songs on it, and instead, it’s a nice and sweet 10 songs that are all amazing and don’t disappoint. The songs were written specifically for Passion 2016, and feature the Passion Band along with Kristian Stanfill, Crowder, Brett Younker, Melodie Malone, Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, Christy Nockels and Jimi Cravity, and here’s the track list:
Since 2016 is my year to work on developing an even better relationship with God and to strengthen my walk, I am very excited to add this to my playlist of worship songs and I know if you are looking to dive into some awesome worship music, you’ll love this CD too. You can be in “worship mode” throughout the day, no matter what you’re doing too because you can purchase the album on iTunes HERE. You can also learn more about it on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
