UK's worship leader Ian Yates drops his second single, 'Forgiven', taken from his new album 'Mystery' set for an April 3rd 2020 release. It's a 3 minute 26 second up-tempo acoustic pop song brimming from intro to outro of positivity and life both musically and lyrically.
'Forgiven' is a celebration song. Celebrating and declaring that we have been forgiven, that there is no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus and There's nothing that can separate us from the love of Christ.
A lot of the song is taken straight from Romans 8:34-39. "I love this quote from Joseph Prince - 'Knowing that you are completely forgiven destroys the power of sin in your life'. My hope is that as we sing this song we will fully know that we are forgiven and nothing can separate us from God's love."
Yates is a Christian worship leader and songwriter from Liverpool, UK. September 2016 saw the release of Yates' 4th album, (his 3rd on 7Core Music) 'Awaken To Love' to rave reviews, and included 'No Longer I' co-written with Matt Redman, and the UK Step Fwd chart number 1 single 'High Wire'.
It was followed up in 2019 with his 'Deconstruction vol. 1' mini album which contained the singles 'Blackout', "Belly Of The Beast', 'Hope Beyond Hope' and 'Deconstruction' all of which proved popular on various Spotify editorial playlists and gained radio airplay across many stations in the UK, USA and Australia.
