GRAMMY-nominated American christian music group, Jesus Culture released the second collection of songs in 2020 on Friday, June 12 – Church Volume Two (Live). This release follows Volume One , which released on April 24th.
The complete collection, will release as a physical CD only on June 19th. Worship leaders featured during the recording include Kim Walker-Smith, Bryan & Katie Torwalt, Chris McClarney, Chris Quilala, Mack Brock, Derek Johnson and Jake Ithurburn.
These recordings return to who Jesus Culture was from the start; a family with a collection of songs that reflect who God is and what He is doing in their church and their lives. They captured lyrics and melodies that carry a new sound for a new season.
In an interview with Relevant Magazine, Jesus Culture’s veteran Kim Walker-Smith said,
“With this record, we just wanted to go back to the start: We are a church creating an album of the songs that are for the Church and ministering to the Church. It really solidified that this is who we are. We are the Church. We are the body of Christ. This is what we love to do: serve the body of Christ. That’s also why we decided to call it Church. It just encompasses everything that we wanted to communicate.”
These songs were recorded live at Jesus Culture Sacramento over a period of four Sundays capturing this season of the congregation.
Jesus Culture worship leader, Derek Johnson also said:
“It felt like a return to simplicity,” “Capturing moments with our church family over the course of a few Sundays and singing songs we all needed to sing. It’s one of the reasons there are two volumes. Every song had something special, and we knew we had to release them all. How do you cut a moment with God? It just didn’t feel possible.”
