GRAMMY® NOMINATED ELEVATION WORSHIP & MAVERICK CITY SET RELEASE DATE FOR LIVE COLLABORATION ALBUM
GRAMMY® nominated and Billboard #1 worship collectives Elevation Worship and Maverick City are gearing up for the release of their first collaborative live album, Old Church Basement. The album’s highly anticipated first single, “JIREH” features Chandler Moore and Naomi Raine (Maverick City Music). Old Church Basement is available wherever music is sold and streamed on April 30, 2021; the worship visual for “Jireh” is available today.
“Jireh” features lead vocals from Chandler Moore and Naomi Raine, who are also credited as co-writers on the track. “This song has honestly been a reminder for me that God is everything we’ll ever need. My prayer and hope is that everyone who listens to this is reminded of the Father’s heart toward us and that He loves to take care of us,” says Naomi Raine of Maverick City.
“Over the past year, the Mav crew has become more like family to us,” says Chris Brown from Elevation Worship. “The times we’ve spent writing and worshipping together have been very special and felt equally important to what God was doing in both of our ministries.” Out of one of their first songwriting sessions came the song “Jireh”, a powerful ballad that Elevation Worship has been singing in their church services for several months. “It was the first song Pastor Steven and I wrote with Chandler Moore and Naomi Raine and it’s the song that kickstarted the idea for the entire project, Old Church Basement”, says Brown.
Old Church Basement is available wherever music is sold and streamed on April 30, 2021; the worship visual for “Jireh” is available today. Follow Elevation Worship on social media using the handle @ElevationWorship; Follow Maverick City Music on social media using the handle @MaverickCityMusic.
