Featuring 13 original songs, including the singles Nothing Can Separate
(in partnership with International Justice Mission), this album is a diverse mix of songs and styles with influences from jazz, soul, pop and gospel.
This is an album that draws upon numerous musical influences and ways of understanding our walk of faith, but which hinges around the centrality of the cross and Jesus’ sacrifice. The idea of God’s heart exploding is a direct reference to love of God that we most clearly see demonstrated on the cross as Jesus dies the most excruciating death for all of us - Jesus on the cross takes the love of God from abstract thought to hard gritty reality and demonstrates the highest form of love ever possible. Jesus on the cross is the blueprint for love. This album is a journey of reflection on that love that we experience not just through celebration and joy, but also in our places of deep pain and suffering.
