A couple years ago Phil Wickham got together with a bunch of friends for a very special night of worship called “Singalong” and the entire show was recorded & given out for free on his site! The album was amazing, so we were super excited to hear Phil’s announcement recently about another “Singalong” album coming soon.

Watch this video message from Phil to learn more about it:

PHIL WICKHAM RESPONSE REVIEW

 

Response is in my mind one of the best Phil Wickham albums to date.  And his voice shines with particularly brilliance on this album. Response is quickly becoming one of my favorite albums of this year. Phil Wickham actually surprised me, because I did not expect Response to be this good.  The lyrics are some of the most meaningful lyrics I’ve heard in a very long time. This album is filled with emotion and it just seeps out through every single song. Each song sounds unique and each song sends chills up your spine because of how powerful it is. You will quickly fall in love with this album.
“Heaven Fall Down” is a great song to start the album off with. Some albums (like this one) start off the album with an amazing song that really sets the mood for the rest of the album, then there are some albums that start off with a song that has nothing to do with the concept of the album and it really starts the album off on a bad note. Phil Wickham did a great job of selecting this song to be the first track you hear on Response. The chorus has as much emotion as every single song by Hillsong combined. I love it when you can literally feel the emotion in a song. You feel as if you are there with Phil Wickham when you listen to “Heaven Fall Down.” His heart’s song becomes your heart’s song. He says, “We’re crying out in desperation for You!” Listen to it a couple of times, and this line will make you get down on your knees in reverence for God.

I really love the track “One God.” This song really makes me feel empowered. When he says, “Wonderful Savior from death you rise,” it makes me feel like I can do anything. The whole song reminds me that God is there in everything and He reigns over all. Think about it, he says, “Father of mercy You break the chains, now there is victory in Jesus’ name!” God is there for us. This song has amazing lyrics and also a nice beat to go with it.

The first single from the album “At Your Name (Yahweh, Yahweh)” is a nice melodic song. It is one of those songs that helps to close your eyes and really revel in the music and his voice. This song talks about how majestic our Lord and Savior is. Just close your eyes and listen to it and think of all He has done for you. You will quickly be filled with awe for our Savior.

“Sun and Moon” is a great ballad between Phil and God. He says that if God is the sun then he wants to be the moon because he wants to reflect Him. It is such a beautiful song that really captures the heart of most Christians. Lecrae said the same thing a while back in DJ Official’s song “Show Off.” I absolutely love that analogy, and I think Phil Wickham has probably done it the best in song that I have ever heard.

Response is a beautiful album that I am quickly growing to love. Phil Wickham knows how to craft words and make them sound more beautiful than anything you have ever heard. This album is definitely his best so far. Every single song on the album is worth listening to. If you like worship music, then this is the album for you. It has the most meaningful lyrics of any CD to come out this year. You will be blown away.

Favorite Song: Sun and Moon

Favorite Lyrics: “Take these hands, I know they’re empty but with You they can be used for beauty in Your perfect plan. All I am is yours.” (From the song “All I Am”)

PHIL WICKHAM On New Album RESPONSE “When I See Different Aspects of God In Different Situations of Life, My Response To That Love Is Equally Varied”

 

After selling a quarter million albums and over a half million song downloads to date, a chart topping radio single, receiving accolades for his previous three efforts and being featured in major publications such as CCM, Relevant, Worship Leader and Christian Music Today, Fair Trade Services’ recording artist Phil Wickham returns October 4, with his latest album Response.

On his fourth release, Wickham provides listeners with eleven tracks that seek to give a voice to humanity’s acceptance of God’s love in any circumstance. In the same way that the Psalms offer expressions of joy, sorrow, repentance, hope and victory, Response gives a voice to the appreciation and adoration of God in every chapter of life.

“When I see the different aspects of who God is in different situations of life, my response to that love can be seen as jumping for joy where other times I respond by saying, ‘You are Holy and I am not,’ humbled and falling on my face,” Wickham describes.

For his previous three projects- Phil Wickham (2006); Cannons (2007) and Heaven & Earth (2009), Wickham worked solely with longtime friend and producer Pete Kipley (MercyMe, Matthew West, The Afters). On Response, Wickham invited reputable producer Brown Bannister (Steven Curtis Chapman, Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith) to co-produce the album as an intentional effort to stay true to the album’s theme of voicing a collective worshipful response to God.

“There are more musicians playing on the record than I normally work with,” Wickham says. “Multiple drummers, bass players, etc and I wrote with more people on this record hoping to have these songs be an expression of everybody’s heart not just mine.”

The first single from Response, “At Your Name (Yahweh, Yahweh),” is currently receiving airplay on 26 stations nationwide, including national networks KLOVE and American Family Radio. The song has already cracked the top 15 on the INSPO radio chart and is No. 35 on the National Christian Audience radio chart. In support of the track, Wickham has been out on the road visiting radio stations across the nation including stations in Nashville, TN; Charlotte, NC; Minneapolis, MN and Kansas City, MO.

In conjunction with the new release, Wickham will also tour around the country this fall playing his new single, other songs from Response and more.

PHIL WICKHAM THE VICTORY LYRICS

On a hill Your blood was spilled
Your brow, Your hands, Your feet
With nails and thorns the veil was torn
To make a way for me, You made a way for me.

[Chorus:]
Jesus, Savior, my God, my King, my Lord
Jesus, Savior, the victory is Yours.

Wrapped and bound, they laid You down
A perfect sacrifice
But in three days, the stone was rolled away
Forever You’re alive
Forever You’re alive

[Chorus:]
Jesus, Savior, my God, my King, my Lord
Jesus, Savior, the victory is Yours
The victory is Yours

Death has been beaten
The grave has been conquered
Jesus is risen
Life ever after
