14-song project is accompanied by music video for ‘Let People Sing’
Worship collective Jesus Culture has released their new album, “Why Not Right Now?.” The 14-song project, recorded live in Costa Mesa, California, is the group's latest project since 2020's two-volume “Church.” Celebrating Friday’s album release, a music video for "Let People Sing," led by worship leader Chris McClarney, accompanied the album. The video can be viewed below.
"We’ve been anticipating finally sharing ‘Why Not Right Now?’ with the world," shared Jesus Culture member and fellow worship leader Derek Johnson. "We’ve captured a fresh sound that marks a new season for Jesus Culture Music, and we’re hopeful it will inspire worship in the hearts of believers everywhere."
Jesus Culture founder Banning Liebscher added, "Very few albums over the past 18 years of Jesus Culture worship have stirred my heart at the level that ‘Why Not Right Now?’ has. Our heart has remained the same since the very beginning, and we want to see a generation encounter the presence of God and lift up the name of Jesus on the earth. We're believing for revival in our day! Our heart is to see the church ignited with a greater passion for Jesus, and for a world that doesn’t know God to encounter him."
