LOS ANGELES, Calif. (March 13, 2020) — GRAMMY® nominated Elevation Worship is gearing up for the release of their 11th career project with GRAVES INTO GARDENS, out worldwide May 1, 2020. The title track single and accompanying video are available today. Listen to “Graves Into Gardens” here and watch the video here. In support of their new music, Elevation Worship will also embark on its ‘Elevation Nights’ U.S. arena tour this spring with Pastor Steven Furtick kicking off May 26 in Austin, Texas.
GRAVES INTO GARDENS is a live album featuring 10 newly penned tracks that dynamically showcase the collective talents of the group while spotlighting a number of special guests. These include the title track’s (“Graves Into Gardens”) lead vocal from Bethel Music’s GRAMMY® nominated Brandon Lake, who is also credited as co-writer on the song, and an appearance from GRAMMY® nominee Tauren Wells on “Never Lost.”
“Our hope is that this album provides a new perspective that allows listeners to see new life in seemingly dead places,” says Elevation Worship’s Chris Brown. “We want the music and message to elevate their faith to believe in the resurrection power of all the dreams, hopes, and promises they’ve sown. And to be reminded that in every season, and every circumstance, God is able to do more than we could ask or imagine when we trust Him with our present and future. What God breathes on must come to life, and what we may see as a grave, God sees as a garden.”
Elevation Worship is the musical expression of Elevation Church, a multisite church based in Charlotte, N.C. founded by lead Pastor Steven Furtick. Over the past 14 years, it has grown into a global phenomenon drawing a weekly attendance of more than 25,000 with locations from Toronto to Orlando; in addition to their worldwide online audience.
