‘ALWAYS’ album available Sept. 9; preorder here
Grammy-Award winning artist Chris Tomlin is set to release a new full-length worship project, “ALWAYS,” on Sept. 9, and is revealing the cover, track listing, featured artists, preorder here and new song “Holy Forever” today.
The album contains 13-tracks, 12 of which were cowritten by Tomlin, including the title-track single “Always” which was released to Christian radio in May. Tomlin performed the song live for the first time on the “Tomlin UNITED tour” (a Pollstar Top 10 Worldwide tour) this spring. He was inspired by Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.”
The song’s official live video was filmed during Tomlin’s annual “Good Friday Nashville” concert and premiered exclusively with Facebook. Featured guests on “ALWAYS” include Elevation Worship, Brandon Lake and Steffany Gretzinger. The project was produced by Ben Glover, Bryan Fowler, Ed Cash, Jeff Sojka, Jonathan Smith and Dave Haywood of Lady A, who co-produced “The Answer” alongside Ben West.
“These songs were written with the intention of helping people connect with God,” Tomlin shared. “And already throughout just the beginning of this process, with the songwriters, our families and friends, and the incredible team that helps bring these songs to the world, I have started to see God take these songs and impact hearts and lives. My prayer is that God continues to take this music and use it in ways I could have never imagined … in ways only he could – and in that, points the glory back to him.”
The album follows Tomlin’s successful projects “Chris Tomlin & Friends,” released in 2020, and “Chris Tomlin & Friends: Summer EP,” released in 2021.
