NA­TIONS Church is set to re­lease its long-awaited de­but al­bum of wor­ship songs in Oc­to­ber.

Mem­bers of the con­gre­ga­tion, led by Chris Burke, have writ­ten and com­posed all the songs for the al­bum, with other tal­ented mem­bers help­ing with the mu­sic, al­bum art and record­ing of the pro­ject.

The con­cept for the al­bum be­gan nearly a year ago with a team of writ­ers and pro­duc­ers came to­gether to work on orig­i­nal ma­te­rial.

Na­tions Church mar­ket­ing and pub­lic­ity of­fi­cer Robyn Wil­son said the al­bum was some­thing church mem­bers had been keen on for some time.

“The con­cept be­hind the al­bum was to write songs that would en­cour­age, up­lift and bring hope to those who hear them, while re­flect­ing the style and cul­ture of our church mu­sic team,” she said.

“We en­deav­oured to write with a cre­ative and fresh mind­set, rather than just con­form­ing to what may be con­sid­ered a tra­di­tional church sound.

“Hav­ing spent the past six months fi­nal­is­ing, pro­duc­ing and re­hears­ing the songs, we recorded them live at one of our Sun­day night church ser­vices on the evening of July 19.

“Since then, we’ve been work­ing on over­dub­bing, mix­ing and mas­ter­ing the tracks,” she said.

The al­bum, ti­tled Seek, is set for re­lease on Oc­to­ber 18, and will be avail­able on iTunes. Copies of the CD can also be bought at Na­tions Church in Mya­ree and Bel­mont.
