Hillsong Worship releases special compilation project ‘Take Heart (Again)’

GRAMMY® Award-winning and multi-platinum selling Christian music powerhouse, Hillsong Worship, announce the release their latest album, “Take Heart (Again).” A collaborative expression of familiar yet newly potent declarations of praise featuring members from Hillsong Worship, Hillsong UNITED, and Hillsong Young & Free, the project is available worldwide today via Capitol Records.

“Take Heart (Again)” is a continuation of the faith-filled messages that Hillsong Worship was built on and a reminder that “taking heart” is not a one-time occurrence. Consisting of both timeless and more recent songs from the group’s extensive catalogue, many of the tracks take on a new meaning in our current world where declarations of hope, faith, and God’s love are so important.

“This album encapsulates our prayer that we would take heart in this season,” says Hillsong Worship’s Brooke Ligertwood. “That as we read the next headline, or receive the next report, whether good or bad, we would take heart again, put our hope in Jesus again, confess his Lordship again. He has been faithful in the past and He will be faithful again.”

The 12-track compilation features some of the group’s most beloved praise and worship songs including Hillsong classics “Hosanna,” “Eagle’s Wings,” and “Broken Vessels (Amazing Grace) / Life,” as well as more recent favorites like “Who You Say I Am,” “New Wine,” and much more.
“As we pray again, lament again, rejoice again, declare again, love mercy again, praise again – we do so in absolute faith that we will see God’s goodness again, experience His presence again and see Him keep His promises again,” adds Ligertwood. “We will take heart, again, and God will be faithful again, because faithfulness is not just what He does – it’s who He is.”

Hillsong Worship and Tasha Cobbs Leonard announce collaborative release

GRAMMY® Award-winning Hillsong Worship, along with GRAMMY® Award-winning singer/songwriter Tasha Cobbs Leonard, announce the release of a special collaborative edition of “Awake My Soul.” Featuring lead vocals from Hillsong worship leader/songwriter Brooke Ligertwood and Cobbs Leonard, the single is available now.

When Hillsong Worship was first searching for words and melodies to articulate what would become their “AWAKE” album, they felt a clear directive toward a sound that would accompany an awakening of God’s people. “Awake My Soul” became a song-cry of intercessional praise and an invitation to consider the spiritual ‘sound’ of the Saviour’s response. From the outset, the song was a powerful expression of spiritual warfare.

“Last year our church, Hillsong, announced that Tasha Cobbs Leonard was going to be one of our guests at Hillsong Conference 2020 in July in Sydney, Australia (news which was met with much jubilation!),” said Ligertwood. “At the beginning of this year, Tasha and I then began talking about what it would be like for us to record a song together live at Hillsong Conference.

We witnessed the COVID-19 pandemic evolve, as it reached a point that necessitated postponement of live events and conferences the world over. It became clear we weren’t going to be able to execute what we’d originally planned. However, the collaboration felt important, so perhaps there was something else we could do…And so, ‘Awake My Soul with Tasha Cobbs Leonard’ was birthed.

Though we could not have foreseen the potent timing of this collaboration, it was well within the Lord’s realm of knowledge and so we are grateful, yet not surprised!”

“What God was birthing in us was on purpose, and it was for this time,” adds Tasha Cobbs Leonard.” ‘“Awake My Soul’ calls for the Church to arise and take authority. It reminds us of an eternal weight and an eternal calling. Together, this anthem is the Church’s declaration that there is an awakening taking place in the earth. The Kingdom of God is alive!’

“Awake My Soul” is Hillsong Worship’s first collaboration since partnering with Delirious back in 2004. The duo (Ligertwood and Cobbs Leonard) have been friends for years and share the same passion for worship and the same desire to connect people to God. Together, they pray that this rendition will be a reflection of God’s heart for His Church: unity, diversity, peace and power.

“Our hope is that this version of ‘Awake My Soul’ unequivocally exhorts every believer who hears it to PRAY with faith and authority for our world and Christ’s Church at this time in history,” says Ligertwood and Cobbs Leonard.

“May His Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven, and may our worship and intercession pull that reality into this one:

“And when He moves and when we pray
Where stood a wall now stands a way
Where every promise is Amen”
