Chris Tomlin Gears Up For The Release Of New Album Burning Lights

As one of the most acclaimed worship leaders of our time, Chris Tomlin is set to deliver his newest studio set, ‘Burning Lights,’ on 8th January 2013, continuing his efforts of crafting songs for the church that cross cultures and generations.

The internationally renowned Grammy® winner, whose venerable career has yielded widely known worship anthems such as ‘How Great Is Our God,’ ‘Holy Is The Lord’ and ‘Jesus Messiah,’ has given voice to the Church and millions of people around the world as they worship Jesus. Now, Tomlin is set to release his new album, ‘Burning Lights,’ on the heels of the Passion 2013 conference in Atlanta’s Georgia Dome, where he will lead worship with a generation of 18-25 year olds from around the world at the significant, four-day gathering.

Comprised of 12 tracks produced by Jason Ingram (Tenth Avenue North, Aaron Shust), Ed Cash (Kari Jobe, Matthew West) and Dan Muckala (MercyMe, Brandon Heath) and featuring the powerful first single ‘Whom Shall I Fear [God Of Angel Armies]’ and an all-new studio recording of the radio hit ‘White Flag,’ ‘Burning Lights’ is the follow up to 2011’s Grammy® winner for Best Christian or Gospel Album, ‘And If Our God Is For Us…’. ‘Burning Lights’ also includes collaborations with Hip-Hop artist Lecrae as well as worship leaders Christy Nockels, Kari Jobe, and Phil Wickham.

“It’s amazing sitting here thinking that this many years past, this many years on, I’m still making records and still making records that mean something to people—not just doing it just to do it,” says Tomlin. “I feel that it’s a very important responsibility that God’s given me, to write songs for His Church and to give people a voice to worship God, so I take that very seriously. So I’m not just throwing a bunch of songs together to make a new record and hope that it just rides on the wind of what I’ve done in the past. I want it to be the very best thing I’ve ever done every time.”

‘Burning Lights’ lead single, ‘Whom Shall I Fear [God Of Angel Armies],’ impacted radio on 28th September and received 30 adds in its first week. Since then, the track has quickly risen to No. 15 at AC Monitored, No. 14 at National Audience, No. 17 at AC Indicator and No. 10 on the Soft AC/INSPO chart, with 5.2 million total audience impressions.

Tomlin will launch his nationwide ‘Burning Lights Tour’ beginning 19th February in Charleston, W.V., visiting 34 markets including New York, Seattle and Dallas, before wrapping at the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver on 4th May.

Friend and pastor of Passion City Church/Communicator/Passion founder, Louie Giglio will join Tomlin on the road for select dates, with Sparrow Records’ Kari Jobe appearing at all shows.
