Following the April release of the critically acclaimed single "Plead The Blood," Grammy- nominated songwriter Chris Davenport drops a new worship anthem today titled "The King." Both songs are featured on his upcoming solo album, “Time,” slated for June 30 (Capitol CMG).
Davenport said, " 'The King' is a victory song. Right out of the gate, we wanted to start from victory. I think too often Christians can look at the cross and think that Jesus just barely eeked out a win, but the reality is that Jesus pummeled sin. He absolutely crushed the enemy. It was an onslaught and grace was the champion, so I wanted to write a song from that place of embracing the wonder of Jesus’ power, his life and resurrection, his authority, and his kingdom still to come."
With "Plead The Blood," which Davenport recorded with Cody Carnes and Brandon Lake (listen here), the song is currently top 20 at Air1 Radio and steadily climbing weekly. Since its release, it's had 1.6M global streams and the video has received more than 500,000 views on YouTube.
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 Brandon Lake, and Cody Carnes' "Be Glad." He also contributed to Hillsong Worship and UNITED songs “Another In The Fire,” “Grace To Grace” and “Seasons.”
Established as a unique, authentic, influential voice and writer, Davenport is ready to release his own music and his 13-song debut “Time.” The album's preorder campaign is on now – click here to find out more.
