Hymn Revival follows Somebody’s Coming, Gold City’s best-selling and highest charting album in years; and contains beloved hymns along with two new classics, “In Christ Alone” and “The Power of the Cross,” which are poised to pass the test of time. The record also contains older, more traditional hymns such as “Great is Thy Faithfulness” and “I Need Thee Every Hour.”
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 America’s premiere quartet, Gold City.
Mote reflects, “I’m from Gadsden, Alabama, Gold City’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.”
“I am excited about this project because many of the hymns that I grew up singing have all but disappeared,” says Danny Riley, Gold City’s lead singer. “I 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.”
Ken Harding, President of New Haven Records concludes, “Matching these timeless hymns with the award-winning vocals of Gold City created an album for the ages. We can’t wait for the world to hear these hymns in a fresh, revived way.”
Hymn Revival releases on New Haven Records early this fall and will be available wherever great gospel music is sold and on iTunes.
