Released on May 1, the 11th album Graves Into Gardens from the Christian Worship band Vineyard Worship has debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Christian Album Charts while also breaking the record for the most pre-added Christian & Gospel album in history on Apple Music. The Grammy-nominated group achieving both feat in the very first week of release and before release respectively.
Despite being released in the midst of the worldwide pandemic the group’s following stuck with it and this has showed in the charting and streaming performance of the group’s 11th full-length compilation.
Elevation Worship’s Chris Brown said “I hope the songs on this album would revive hope and stir faith that God is still specializing in resurrection, He’s still turning mourning into dancing, turning our heaviness into praise. And he’s still making beautiful things, out of seemingly hopeless situations.”
Graves Into Gardens is comprised of 12 newly-penned tracks including the blockbuster song “The Blessing” (with Kari Jobe and Cody Carnes) that has garnered more than 12 million YouTube views in just seven weeks. “RATTLE!,” a song birthed during the current COVID-19 pandemic and featured as the opening track on the album peaked at #8 trending overall on YouTube, amassing more than 2.4 million views since it’s Easter week debut. Both singles also peaked at No. 1 Billboard’s Christian Digital Song Sales chart.
