Meanwhile, Relevant Magazine also began streaming the entire We Will Not Be Shaken album on its "The Drop" section and this will run until Sunday.
Bethel Music started with the worldwide premiere of the We Will Not Be Shaken film on its Facebook page. It ran for 24 hours and was followed by an exclusive access to students of WorshipU, a training school for worship leaders and teams. The film was set on a mountaintop overlooking Shasta Lake north of Redding, and was recorded during an evening of worship.
The film was directed by Nathan Grubbs and Luke Manwaring, and was shot using a drone aircraft's camera flying overhead during the worship event.
The live album and DVD, which was produced by Bobby Strand and Chris Greely, will introduce 11 new songs led by the Bethel Music Artist Collective, including Brian Johnson, Jenn Johnson, Hunter Thompson, Amanda Cook and Matt Stinton, as well as debut artists Kalley Heiligenthal, Hannah McClure, Paul McClure, Jonathan David Helser and Melissa Helser.
We Will Not Be Shaken hopes to serve as a catalyst for other worship communities to remain steadfast in their faith no matter what the circumstances. The title track was inspired during a spontaneous moment of worship and highlights God's enduring promise during times of trouble.
The album has even been named one of HearItFirst.com's most anticipated albums of 2015 while LouderThanTheMusic.com names Bethel Music as "Artist of the Month."
CCM Magazine also lauded the album, saying that there "is quite a bit of buzz surrounding the anticipated release from Bethel Music...and it's all warranted. This is an album that simply soars above the rest... Every track holds a different aspect of beauty...flawless." Christian Review Magazine gave it a five-star review saying the album is an "out-and-out worship release on which each track contains lyrics that praise and glorify God, and point toward His faithfulness, love and grace."
NewReleaseTuesday.com for its part loves the "anointed lyrics that are both emotionally stirring and grounded in truth alongside musical atmospheres that quiet the soul while simultaneously clearing space for God to speak."
