Casey J Set to Release New Album ‘The Gathering’ January 25, 2019
Posted on Nov, 8th

Integrity Music and Tyscot Records announce the January 25 release of the much-anticipated album The Gathering from Stellar Award winning, Dove Award nominated worship artist Casey J along with the immediate release of the album’s title track to digital platforms.

 



The new song follows The Gathering’s debut single and Casey J’s current Gospel radio hit, “If God”, and her 2015 album debut, The Truth, and breakout song “Fill Me Up”, which has over 25 million combined streams.



 

An Atlanta, Georgia-based worship leader and former elementary school teacher, Casey J (Hobbs) grew up in a house filled with God’s Word, watching as her grandmother hosted Bible studies and home church groups. That mantle for sharing the Gospel outside of traditional church settings now rests on Casey who began holding “pop up worship” events in public places. With vulnerability and joy, she shares Jesus through song, inviting others to join her in worship, no matter the location.



“It all started with the question, ‘What about the people who aren’t coming to church?’,” says Casey. “So God placed it in our hearts to just start popping up at local parks in Atlanta with one agenda: to gather people together and share God’s love using worship as our vehicle… we would pack up guitars, percussion instruments, and a few blankets and just sit in the grass and sing.”



“We started to see something beautiful… an intersection between the Church and those who we are called to serve that reached beyond just our Sunday experiences,” she continues. “From that grass grew a deep and solid purpose to create experiences that put all eyes on Him — both inside and outside of the church — and to write music that is the soundtrack to not only Sunday mornings on pews but Tuesday afternoons under the stars.”



It was in that missions-focused spirit that Casey recorded The Gathering live in the park-like setting of Seren be just outside of Atlanta with a small group of worshipers. The resulting 10-track album captures the beauty and power of corporate worship in an unrestrained, organic form and with an eclectic style that mixes Gospel, Pop and Americana influences. The album opens with new single “The Gathering”, which serves as a call to worship and sets the tone for the entire project.



 

We have gathered here together / With one agenda / And it is You alone…

 

Come, we’re desperate / Hearts are open / Jesus come…

 

Your Kingdom come, Your will be done

 

 

 

The Gathering album releases January 25, 2019, as the first collaborative project from Integrity and Tyscot, two of Christian and Gospel music’s largest independent labels. Additional album details to follow with information on Casey J available at CaseyJMusic.com.
