Bethel Music releases instrumental "Without Words" March 5, 2013

Continuing to push the creative boundaries of corporate worship while inviting listeners to experience fresh encounters with God,Bethel Music will release its first ever all instrumental, full-length CD, Without Words, March 5, 2013 with global distribution through Integrity Music. Featuring tracks inspired from its critically acclaimed and No. 1-selling album released last fall, For The Sake Of The World, and other compelling Bethel Music anthems, Without Words began as an instrumental experiment by the Bethel Music community.

“Each song on the recording has been deconstructed and rearranged into versions that hint at original melodies through unique instrumentation and a variety of sounds,” says Brian Johnson, who, along with his wife Jenn, are the senior worship pastors at Bethel Church and oversee the Bethel School of Worship. “Creating a dynamic, ambient and cinematic atmosphere, free from lyric and discourse, this album ventures into new territory and explores what it is to worship without words.”

The full Without Words track listing follows:
1) What Does It Sound Like
2) God I Look To You
3) Forgiven
4) For The Sake Of The World
5) Angels
6) Come To Me
7) To Our God
8) One Thirst
9) Worthy Is The Lamb
10) I Will Exalt

Immediately following the release of Without Words, Bethel worship artists Brian and Jenn Johnson, Jeremy Riddle, William Matthews and Steffany Frizzell-Gretzinger will embark on their first U.S. tour. Hosting “Nights of Worship & Ministry” in six cities, as well as a two-day Bethel Worship Conference, the tour launches March 6 in Miami, FL and travels throughout the Southeast.
