ELEVATION WORSHIP
'There Is A Cloud'


by Herb Longs, thechristianbeat.org

   North Carolina's Elevation Worship released another exceptional live album, "There Is A Cloud," recorded live at Elevation Ballantyne.

  Elevation Worship has become an influential voice in churches around the world charting songs such as "Only King Forever," "Give Me Faith," and "Unstoppable God." This current record follows the chart-topping 2016 release "Here As In Heaven", and is the tenth full-length release from the church.
  "O Come To The Altar" still sits at #2 on Billboard's Contemporary Christian Music charts a year after its release.

  Elevation Worship founding members and featured vocalists Chris Brown and Mack Brock recently took some time to talk with us about the new record and tour plans.

First off, congratulations on the release of
There Is A Cloud! To begin, can you give us some insight into the album's title track and why you chose it to represent the collection?

  Thank you! In 1 Kings there's a story about Elijah telling his servant to go look for a raincloud when the country had been in a drought for 3 years. And his servant comes back 6 times saying there's no sign of rain. But finally on the 7th time, he reports that he sees a small cloud rising out over the sea. And it felt like a great message to center our album around - that when we find ourselves in a season of drought, a season of waiting or of wondering when we'll see the harvest from what we've been sowing, we can trust that God is faithful, throughout it all!
  When God gives us a promise, it's no longer a matter of if, but when. A season of drought doesn't mean the death of a promise, only a delay. Cause what God promises, He'll always do. So this title track for the album is centered around the faithfulness of God.

How long has the team been working on writing and recording this new album?

  We have been playing these songs in our church for over a year, but we recorded the album in the fall of 2016 at our 12 day Code Orange Revival.

Who/what were some of your biggest inspirations in constructing this new project?

  We pull from a lot of sources for inspiration in sounds and song structures - but our biggest influence has just been the style of our musicians and church over the past several years playing music together. Figuring out our sound and tone for these songs that is along the lines of what we do every weekend at church. Some outside influences range from Killers, Coldplay, Kygo, Hillsong, Chance, kind of all over the place.

Was the process of making this record more similar or different compared to recording previous projects?

  It was very similar to recording other projects. The way we work with our team, we've got set timelines of working these songs out on the front end, leading into the recording - going through several layers of pre-production before the actual event. This project was, however, different because we recorded it at our revival and had multiple times to go through each song during the 12 night revival and hone in the sound and structure of each song.

Were there any songs that were particularly challenging to write or record?

  I'd say the song "Do It Again" took shape over the longest period of time. It actually started with Matt Redman hearing a sermon from Pastor Steven in July 2014. The line that started the song was from that sermon - "the promise still stands." After spending some weeks on it without much progress, the song idea got buried. Then in the fall of 2015, a year and a half later, we circled back on it and wrote the bridge and verses. In a lot of ways, I guess the actual process of writing this particular song resonates with its message.

Is there one particular song that has a very personal meaning for you?

  I believe my favorite is the song called "Yours (Glory and Praise)." It's a very vertical song centered around God's glory and grand nature of the worship that is taking place around his throne day and night. But there's one line in the verse that really touches me every time. It contrasts his power and majesty with his heart for us in one very personal line: "So high above, yet slain for us."

What do you hope listeners take away
from There Is A Cloud?

  We hope this album reminds people that God is always working on their behalf. That even in times of silence, or pain, or doubt, His purpose and love for us still remain. And our highest hope is that each song would lead people to an atmosphere of worship, wherever they find themselves listening to it.

 ELEVATION WORSHIP
O Come To The Altar


by Matt Bell, GodTv

  If there's one thing that really gets us stoked at GOD TV, it's powerful and anointed worship music. And Elevation Worship is producing some of the most powerful and Spirit-led worship of this generation. I had a chance to catch up with Mack Brock, of Elevation Worship recently to learn more about their new album, "There Is A Cloud" and what makes Elevation Worship unique.

Tell us a little bit about Elevation Worship. What's in your own unique DNA?

  One of the things I love most about Elevation Worship is that we are nothing apart from Elevation Church. We are deeply rooted in a local church and that's our primary goal - week in and week out - is to pour ourselves into our church, our people, being servants to God's mission here. That translates in how we approach songwriting, album producing, etc...it's all tied back to that vision.

What was your inspiration for this album?

  The biggest theme for this album is God's faithfulness....believing in it, reminding ourselves of it - whether we are in a season of drought, or in a season of harvest - God's promises, His heart for us, his hope for us, never changes. Our circumstances might change, but He never does.

How does this album differ
from your earlier work?

  I don't know if this album is a huge departure or anything from albums before, but just another layer of what God is doing in our church. A layer deeper of God's work in us, His movement in our ministry.
  I think the songs are more direct lyrically, with a more pointed vision for what we want to sing in church. What we want to declare to God, about God... what we want to be reminded of during our time of worship.

How do you hope this album will inspire people?

  More than anything, I want this album to remind people that God is ALWAYS there with them. Even if He's quiet, even if you feel secluded and alone - you are not! He's always moving with you, and always close, and He hasn't forgotten about you. Sometimes we just need to be reminded of that simple truth.

When not working on your own music,
what's on your Spotify playlist?

  So much! I like pretty much any type of good songwriting, good production. Recently I've really liked Chance the Rapper, Bon Iver, Chris Stapleton, Chainsmokers, Lana Del Rey... I'm kind of all over the place!

What artists inspire you?

  Hillsong is a great inspiration to us on so many levels. Not just music and songwriting, but church leadership and ministry/team building. They are pioneers in so many ways.

  I'm inspired by all the artists listed above...I pull inspiration from so many different songs or moments that I hear.
