Recorded live at the 2011 Vineyard National Leaders Conference along with 1000 attendees comprising of leaders from the UK, Ireland and European Vineyard churches, My Soul Yearns releases today (Sept. 13) from Kingsway with EMI CMG Distribution in the US.  The acclaimed album offers new and recently released worship songs that capture the heart and passion of Vineyard worship.

With the opening title track that speaks of the desire to draw closer to God, to the triumphal anthem of God’s all conquering love for His people (“The Lamb Has Conquered”), to the declaration of the King’s reign on this earth (“Jesus You Reign”), My Soul Yearns is an authentic expression of the Vineyard UK movement.  As indusry insiders draw comparisons between this new album and Vineyard Music’s all time best-selling album, Hungry, Cross Rhythms confirms that the album will be “invaluable for musicians and worship leaders,” while Louder Than The Music calls the album “Amazing.”

The twelve-song album was produced by Trevor Michael (Delirious?, The Crave, Phatfish) and Nigel Briggs (Trent), and mastered at Abbey Road Studios by Geoff Pesche (Gorillaz, Athlete, Coldplay). Featuring both new and established songwriters, My Soul Yearns also features worship leaders Samuel Lane (The Burn Band, Beautiful, All From You), Dave Miller, Joe Blustin and Carley Billingham (nee Orpen).

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin.

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
