New Haven Records is thrilled to announce the upcoming release of Hymn Revival, Gold Cityâ€™s first new hymn project since their immensely popular 1999 release, â€œAmazing Grace: A Hymn Collection.â€
Hymn Revival follows Somebodyâ€™s Coming, Gold Cityâ€™s best-selling and highest charting album in years; and contains beloved hymns along with two new classics, â€œIn Christ Aloneâ€ and â€œThe Power of the Cross,â€ which are poised to pass the test of time. The record also contains older, more traditional hymns such as â€œGreat is Thy Faithfulnessâ€ and â€œI Need Thee Every Hour.â€
Co-produced by label-mate and Academy of Country Music Award-winning musician Gordon Mote, Hymn Revival is exactly that: a treasury of classic and current hymns refreshed and re-envisioned by the matchless voices of Americaâ€™s premiere quartet, Gold City.
Mote reflects, â€œIâ€™m from Gadsden, Alabama, Gold Cityâ€™s home town. I grew up admiring them and now I have the incredible honor of co-producing them. You can really feel their energy and personality coming through as they sing these classic songs of the church.â€
â€œI am excited about this project because many of the hymns that I grew up singing have all but disappeared,â€ says Danny Riley, Gold Cityâ€™s lead singer. â€œI love a lot of the new songs, but the old songs of the church have ministered to me through the years and have a special place in my heart. We have also included some modern hymns that I know will become standards in the church.â€
Ken Harding, President of New Haven Records concludes, â€œMatching these timeless hymns with the award-winning vocals of Gold City created an album for the ages. We canâ€™t wait for the world to hear these hymns in a fresh, revived way.â€
Hymn Revival releases on New Haven Records early this fall and will be available wherever great gospel music is sold and on iTunes.
