Offers 5 new songs, including ‘There's Nothing’ and ‘Found’
GMA Dove Award-winning worship leader and songwriter Amanda Cook is bringing more new music to the marketplace today with her latest collection, “SURVEY: Part 1” (listen here). The five-song EP follows her spring 2022 album, “State Of The Union.”
Sharing more in-depth about “SURVEY: Part 1,” the ever-creative Cook said, “I love the idea of surveying the landscape of one’s life, ideas of God, emotions, faith, hopes, disasters, fears, joys, the list goes on and on. There’s such a beauty to the humility that comes with embracing our humanity, our limitations, our smallness in the grand scheme of things, with curiosity. I hope that this music becomes a companion to your own curiosity, your own long walks, and ventures into the soul of our own being.“
A new music video is out for "There's Nothing," which can be viewed below. To promote the release of “SURVEY: Part 1,” Cook held an EP prerelease show in Hollywood this past Monday. During the special event, she held an intimate conversation with the audience followed by an exclusive live acoustic set. She is also slated to perform at Big Church Festival in the U.K. at the end of the month, and in July for the annual Heaven On Earth Festival in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. She recently wrapped 11 dates touring with Bethel Music to support their recent album release, where she's featured on both “The Great Beyond” and “Precious Blood.”
