New song, ‘While We Wait,’ is available now

Worship leader and songwriter Amanda Cook has announced the release of her forthcoming LP, “State of the Union” – and she is giving fans a taste of the new music with the track "While We Wait." The single is available to stream now along with a brand-new lyric video (below) released to Cook's YouTube channel as well as available to watch on Apple Music. "While We Wait" was co-written by Jason Ingram and Chris Davenport.

“State of the Union” is the third installment following Cook’s two solo albums, “Brave New World” and “House On A Hill,” and her first worship album release with Provident Entertainment.

“ ‘State of the Union’ was written from an animated, reimagined place of trust and love, within my faith tradition as a follower of Jesus," Cook said. "This body of work explores the relationships we carry around in our hearts – with God, with the world, each other, our own selves. It’s an exploration of love, the kind that keeps loving unto and past death. The kind that stays.”

“State of the Union” will release May 20 on Provident Entertainment. Click here to pre-save the new album and listen to “While We Wait” now.

Cook is a writer/musician/lover of books who’s been busy working on several musical projects. She uses music as her go-to mode of transportation and connection. Cook has released several albums that explore the intersections of faith/doubt, love/loss, hope/despair, and fun/not-fun under several monikers (Amanda Cook, Falcon, Ile Des Chenes). She enjoys writing songs that feel helpful, healing, and read like a poem with or without sound.

Her debut solo album, “Brave New World,” earned her a GMA Dove Award for "Inspirational Album of the Year." Songs she has penned include "You Make Me Brave," "Pieces" and "Closer."
