Hillsong Worship’s newest album The Peace Project released October 20, 2017. Though considered a Christmas album, it is also a worship experience from start to finish.
I am not typically one that turns on Christmas music before Thanksgiving but for this album, I was happy to do so. It is a beautifully produced and incredibly thoughtful album. It encouraged me and refocused my heart on what this holiday season is truly about.
The Peace Project Track Listing:
1. Joy to the World
4. Prince of Heaven
5. O Come All Ye Faithful
7. When I Think Upon Christmas
8. Silent Night (with Saviour King)
10. Theme of the Eastern Star
11. O Holy Night
12. Peace Upon the Earth
This album has 7 original tracks as well as 5 well-known Christmas tunes with new arrangements. One of the things I loved about this album was that the songs that classic Christmas songs with new arrangements were not so far from their originals that I couldn’t sing along. I love a good unique arrangement of a popular song but when it is hard to keep up or sing along it can make the song less appealing. This album was far from that. The 7 new songs are really great songs as well and all of them will make great worship songs to be led in churches around the world this Christmas.
If you don’t already have it I highly recommend you get this album. It is a breath of fresh air and truly an encouragement to your heart.
