GRAMMY-Nominated Matt Maher to Release Dynamic Fourth Album All the People Said Amen on April 23

Monday, March 04, 2013
Two-time GRAMMY nominated singer, songwriter and worship leader Matt Maher is set to release his most unique and revealing project yet with the announcement of his fourth album, titled All The People Said Amen available April 23. Maher's newest project fuses the popularity of his vibrant live show with several new studio cuts, offering fans an assortment of writing and performance styles.
 
“This project,” offers Maher, “is a real collage of who I am musically. You’ll hear intimate worship songs, anthemic praise tunes often sung and shouted aloud together in unison, and celebratory songs that inspire the whole church. I wanted to deliver something for everyone, and this set captures what my music and ministry have been, where it is, and where it's headed.”
 
Unity and community define Maher’s music and ministry, represented by the menagerie of songs on All The People Said Amen, and also shown in the album’s cover art. For it, Maher created a visual scrapbook made up of special moments, placed purposefully, including old tour posters, handwritten lyrics from songwriting sessions live and candid shots with fans, even his own wedding photos. Every item has a story behind it and is a significant part of Maher’s songwriting over the last 7 years.
 
Produced by Paul Moak and Maher, the album includes nine concert versions of fan favorites such as “Your Grace Is Enough,” “Hold Us Together” and “It Is Good,” recorded throughout 2012 at stops including the University of Notre Dame campus, Detroit and St. Louis. These rare live cuts are paired with four new original recordings, including lead radio single, “Lord, I Need You” and the high-energy worship anthem, “Burning In My Soul” which made a powerful debut during Passion 2013 conference at the Georgia Dome, attended by more than 60,000 college students. 
 
Released to Christian radio stations earlier this month, “Lord, I Need You,” serves as a reminder that we never outgrow the need for God in our lives. Currently one of CCLI’s fastest rising songs, “Lord, I Need You” has already made an impact at radio. Jeremy Henry of JQ99 in Grand Rapids notes, “I pulled the trigger on Matt’s song because I really feel that my audience is craving and connecting with worship music right now. ‘Lord, I Need You’ is another one for the arsenal and it’s a fresh worship song rooted in a classic which I believe will connect with everyone of any age.”
 
Greg Cassidy of JOYFM in St. Louis adds, “We’re loving the latest from Matt Maher! It’s great how listeners immediately know the song…”
