Press Release

Today, worship leader and songwriter Kim Walker-Smith releases her first new album in three years. The latest project, “Trample,” features 12 new songs, including the released songs "Boxes," "Let Revival In," "Mama," and the title track. Click here to listen to “Trample.”

"As an artist and songwriter, so often our songs and new projects express the process we find ourselves in," Walker-Smith explained. "I’ve written many songs from a dry and difficult season. I’ve written songs that convey the wrestling that I feel in my spirit. But this collection of songs was written on the other side of the fight. ‘Trample’ is a compilation of songs written from a place of victory. Victory is not expressed purely and only with joy, as you will hear in the song ‘Horizon,’ but it is also expressed with humility and an understanding of what is needed to continue moving forward."

Other songs on the project include “Mercy Seat,” which was written to express the vulnerability and total honesty of what Walker-Smith has learned in the fight. “As Long As I Have You” and “Only Jesus Could" solidify her resolve for the one thing that matters most to her in the battle and the victory – that’s Jesus.

Walker-Smith added, "My hope and my prayer with ‘Trample’ is that these words and melodies will prophetically awaken the resolve and determination inside of the listener, to stand in victory through Jesus. I pray the honesty of the lyrics brings repentance where it’s needed and straightening to crooked paths. And lastly, I hope this album makes clear where I’m headed, and I hope others will join me: Worship belongs to Jesus and all the glory is his alone." 

With more than 20 years of worship leadership, Walker-Smith is known for her spirit-led worship anthems. She will be touring internationally this summer with a nearly sold-out South Africa tour followed by a headlining tour in the U.S. this fall.
