- 'Chris Tomlin & Friends' is a fresh departure for the singer with collaborations with Florida Georgia Line and Thomas Rhett.
Chris Tomlin has released his long awaited new album Chris Tomlin & Friends.
Each song feels unique to the artists Tomlin collaborates with, as their own sound shines through while still having Tomlin’s classic sound.
“This is more than just an album with featured artists, those types of albums have existed forever, but this record is new and all about coming together and working together. I have always felt a calling to help give people a voice to worship God and for me this record is a step towards breaking down walls and smashing up the genres,” shared Tomlin on social media. “One of my goals is for this music to be accessible to a wider audience. The way I look at it- music about faith, God, salvation, and forgiveness doesn’t only have to come from any one genre.”
“Thank You Lord” featuring Rhett and Florida Georgia Line is a fun track that will surely delight fans of all the artists. Bear Rinehart of NEEDTOBREATHE is featured in “Power” lives up to its name as an anthem that can be proclaimed and brings in NEEDTOBREATHE style. “God Who Listens” with Rhett is a powerful worship song that highlights God’s good nature. The album ender “Tin Roof” is a standout. Blessing Offor brings a soulful performance that brings the album together.
The album is a fresh departure for Tomlin with a great payoff. The mixture of a gospel choir, country, and traditional worship gives way to beautiful songs to sing to God. The collaborations worked perfectly creating some of Tomlin’s best works to date.
Chris Tomlin & Friends is now available on music streaming platforms.
