The fourth full-length studio album from Tim Hughes promises to be a stunner. Across the twelve tracks the Worship Central/Holy Trinity Brompton leader delivers a range of worship songs that are engaging, inspiring and sure to become church-essentials for many years to come.
For the new album, Hughes was joined by longtime collaborators and Delirious? founders Martin Smith and Stu G, each playing an integral role on the new album post their Delirious? days. Stu G co-wrote the song "Wake Up" with Hughes, and Smith not only added his voice and song-writing talents, but also revealed his gifts as a producer for the album.
His most collaborative project ever, Hughes further co-writes for Love Shine Through with Ben Cantelon, Phil Wickham, Nick Herbert, Nikki Fletcher and Kees Kraayenoord. Additional guest musicians adding their unique stamp on the album include members of Rend Collective Experiment on various instruments, Jesus Culture's Kim Walker-Smith adding her distinct vocals, Michael Guy Chislet (Hillsong UNITED) on guitars, Josiah Sherman (The Listening) adding his keyboard work and Marc James (Vineyard, Verra Cruz) on slide guitar, background vocals. Additional backing voices on the album include Jerry Brown, David Grant, Fay Simpson and Jesus House Gospel Choir. The album was mixed by Sam Gibson (Pearl Jam, Jesus Culture, Elvis Costello) and mastered at Abbey Road. There is also a bonus track, "At Your Name", produced by Nathan Nockels (Brenton Brown, Chris Tomlin, Passion).
Hughes is known as one of the world's best worship music songwriters and his songs are being sung in churches by hundred's of thousands every week.
The single "Counting On Your Name" will be going for adds on Christian AC radio in February.
