Two-time Grammy winner Matt Redman is hitting Los Angeles, Atlanta, Fayetteville (N.C.) and Las Vegas around Friday's release of "Glory Song," adding a pre-show worship leader Q&A to shows through his coast-to-coast trek.
Critics have noted the timeliness of "Glory Song," saying, "If there was ever a time the world needed an album like this from Matt Redman, it was now" (Hallels) alongside "genuine journey of faith that will renew your 'glory song' to God." (JesusFreakHideout).
"Glory Song" marks Redman's 13th album and a return to recording in a studio, which landed him at the iconic Capitol Studios in L.A. Notable to the theme of unity interwoven throughout "Glory Song," Redman collaborated with co-writers including Grammy-winning Chris Tomlin, Jonas Myrin and Bryan and Katie Torwalt, and joined vocals with the likes of Kierra Sheard and Cobbs Leonard along with a gospel choir. 
About the origin of the album title, Redman said, "When we worship God, it's essential to remember who it is we're singing to - and to make that song glorious. The worship of God should always be a glory song." 
Redman will unite with Cobbs Leonard to perform "Gracefully Broken" at the 48th Annual Gospel Music Association Dove Awards on Tuesday, Oct. 17, in Nashville. In November, Redman will return his live show to the U.K. For the latest tour information, click HERE.
