Integrity Music announces the global release of Stand Up, the debut album from Luke Hellebronth, co-leader of London's Worship Central, a staff member at Holy Trinity Brompton and writer of the song "Spirit Break Out," soon to be featured in a major motion picture.
Stand Up, which is available through digital service providers including iTunes and Amazon, was produced by Hellebronth's fellow Worship Central leader and songwriter Ben Cantelon and executive produced by Tim Hughes. The project features seven studio-recorded songs and two live tracks, all written by Hellebronth with co-writers including Cantelon, Hughes, Nick Herbert and Aaron Keyes.
The album unveils the depth of Hellebronth's talent as a writer with songs that range in tone from urgency and optimism, as in the title track and "Our Generation," to plaintive and personal as with "Miracle of Grace."
… Fully embraced by prodigal love / Wrapped in compassion, I'm held in delight The life in Your laughter, joy in Your wine - "Miracle of Grace"
Also included among the nine tracks is "Spirit Break Out," a song that has quickly moved beyond the UK and Europe thanks to Worship Central's 2011 global release of a live album by that title. Kim Walker-Smith followed this, covering the song for her album Still Believe and Integrity featured it on the iWorship Now/Next collection released earlier this year. The song will reach an even larger audience next spring when it is featured in the Paramount film "Noah," starring Russell Crowe. On Stand Up, Hellebronth and Cantelon give "Spirit Break Out" a stronger, darker treatment, reminding listeners of the fine line between intercession and worship. A live video recording of the song featuring Hellebronth and the Worship Central team can be viewed at "Spirit Break Out".
The complete tracklist for Stand Up is: 1. Stand Up 2. Love Like This 3. Awesome Is He 4. Miracle Of Grace 5. Ready For You 6. Who You Say You Are 7. Spirit Break Out 8. Now Is The Time For Us (Bonus - LIVE) 9. Our Generation (Bonus - LIVE)
