Wonder – 2017 Hillsong Album

This is the fifth studio album from Hillsong United that been released on June 2017 under Hillsong Music and Sparrow Records.

According to Joel Houston he felt that the album’s title and themes is about a wonder in both faith and worship. He added that this is a challenge and this is what actually worship in both expression of art, music and story. And for us to empower the conversation through worship, we need to re-awaken the soul to something that will lift their eyes to wonder of truth.

The album was debuted live during the Hillsong United’s concert in Caeserea, Israel which was recorded in a live video and released on May 24, 2017.

Just like what we are expecting in most of Hillsong’s album it has a good collection of christian songs. At first you will only recognize few songs as your favorite but if you are going to play the entire album over and over, you will like all songs on their list.

Most songs from the album talks about being not afraid as well as God’s love. I really like Greatest of These, Water To Wine, and So Will I.

There Is More – 2018 Hillsong Album

This is the 26th album from Hillsong Worship which is going to release on April 8, 2018. Featuring 12 songs of journey knowing who we are in God and know who God is to us. The album is asking for more of God in the world full of problems and distress. God give us hope telling us everyday that there is something more, more that we can ever imagine and dream of.

The album is based on the story of Jacob in Genesis 32 wherein he wrestles with God through the night where he was given a new name, a new purpose. Every song in the album sings of the different journey of encountering God will recreates us into something more.

Sometimes it is hard for us to accept things we lose. We become hopeless believing that that is the only thing we can go. We forgot that God is God of more. He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us through his spirit.

The album also features a new version of Hillsong United’s So Will I (100 Billion X) from their album wonder.
