Integrity Music on Friday announced the release of “The Same Jesus,” the new single from Matt Redman. With “The Same Jesus,” Redman – a multi-Grammy Award-winning singer, worship leader and songwriter – is back with a bold declaration for today’s church; a song that celebrates the story of God, and his faithfulness through every generation.
Redman said, “I’m really excited about this new song. I love that, when we worship him in the here and now, we’re worshipping the same Jesus who spoke creation into being; the same Jesus who walked the earth, who went to the cross, who rose up from the dead, and is coming back again. We’re caught up in his eternal story, and it’s a beautiful thing that we get to worship him as the God of yesterday, today and forever – the one who was and is and is to come.”
The song is Redman's first single from his upcoming album, “Let There Be Wonder,” set to release in early 2020.
During his career, Redman has received two Grammys, 13 Gospel Music Association Dove Awards, and his music has had 500,000,000 lifetime on-demand streams. His award-winning song “10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord)” was named ASCAP’s Christian Music Song of the Year as well as Billboard’s Top Christian Song and is RIAA-certified Platinum. His album “10,000 Reasons,” along with the single "You Never Let Go" are both RIAA-certified Gold. Redman’s 2013 album “Your Grace Finds Me” debuted at No. 1 on the Soundscan Christian album chart, and the follow-up album, “Unbroken Praise” (2015), recorded live at Abbey Road Studios, hit the Top 20 on the Billboard top album sales chart (No. 1 on Billboard’s top Christian albums chart). Redman released his first holiday record, “These Christmas Lights,” in 2016, while “Glory Song” debuted in 2017.
As a songwriter, Redman currently has 72 compositions charting within the CCLI Top 2000. His songs have been recorded by such artists as Chris Tomlin, Elevation, Jesus Culture, Passion, Tasha Cobbs Leonard, Bethel, Pat Barrett, Steven Curtis Chapman and Michael W. Smith. He has traveled the world with his music, leading worship at iconic venues such as Madison Square Garden, Times Square, Red Rocks, St. Paul's Cathedral, and both old and new Wembley stadiums in London.
