Elevation Worship is releasing a new album “Nothing Is Wasted” today, February 19, 2013. It is a double album and includes 12 brand new congregational worship songs recorded live, as well as studio versions of the same songs with a completely new expression, instrumentation, and arrangement. This project also Includes a new recorded version of “Give Me Faith” as a bonus track.
We love the idea of a double album, especially two that contain the SAME SONGS! Different versions of a song is a great idea, especially in the worship space, because it allows the listener to approach the song from two different perspectives. It’s our thought that this can only lead to a more creative expression of these songs in each individual church.
“Elevation Worship’s new double CD is meditative. It allows cavernous spaces for the listener to meditate upon an unchanging God who is full of grace, mercy, redemption, and love: a God who is worthy to be followed. The tracks on this double CD can calm you on your drive home from a hectic and stressful day at work. They can fill you with joy as you drink a cup of coffee in the cool of a summer morning while you sit on your deck to consider the blessings bestowed upon you.” [Read full review...]

From Rich at RKWeblog.com:
“Clearly, this group of local worship leaders models some things I hope spread beyond the songs. For one, they write the songs out of their local ministry experiences. Second, they are mentored and birthed from a local church. And, after meeting these guys a few times I know they are the real deal. This sincerity comes across in their new recording.” [Read full review...]
