Capitol CMG announced the debut single from newly signed artist and Grammy-nominated songwriter Chris Davenport is out now. "Plead The Blood," which Davenport recorded with Cody Carnes and Brandon Lake, can be heard here. He wrote the song with Carnes and Lake along with Pat Barrett and Alexander Pappas. A raw live in-studio video of the song is below.
"When we wrote 'Plead The Blood,' we imagined a song that could serve as a spiritual applicator for Christians everywhere, a song that confesses the blood of Jesus over every area and circumstance in our lives," Davenport said. "So, wherever you hear it, my prayer is that it reminds you of the most powerful defense, the most assured claim that you can wield – the blood of Jesus."
Davenport has been a quiet, yet mighty fixture within the worship community for years, co-writing many of the genre's biggest songs, including Phil Wickham's "Hymn Of Heaven," "Too Good To Not Believe" by Lake, and Carnes' "Be Glad." He also contributed to Hillsong Worship and UNITED songs “Another In The Fire,” “Grace To Grace” and “Seasons.”
A press release stated, “Established as a unique, authentic, influential voice and writer, it's now time for Davenport to release his own music. His debut album, ‘Time,’ is set to release June 30 and will include ‘Plead The Blood.’ ”
