LEELAND's latest single, a re-release of, "You're Not Done" features two-time Grammy nominee, Kari Jobe. Listen to the song HERE.
"We are still pinching ourselves in disbelief that one of our musical heroes is singing on this song with us!" enthuses Lead singer Leeland Mooring. "We are so honored to partner with our friend Kari to see this message of hope flood the hearts of God's people."
This soul-stirring track is filled with hope as it was written during a miraculous recovery. The heartfelt lyrics echo a powerful message: "If you still have breath in your lungs, you're not done..." The words came to Leeland while reflecting on a close friend's battle for life during the pandemic.
"My prayer for this song is that it would be more than a track on a playlist but instead a weapon of hope in your hand to fight for the ones around you - that the message will break through the clouds of anxiety and fear with the light of hope that we have in Christ."
With a captivating blend of sounds, this catchy single serves as a reminder that every breath we take is a testament to God's plan of redemption.
Originally formatted as a pop/rock outfit readying commercial songs for radio, LEELAND released their debut album, 'Sounds of Melodies', in 2006. Spawning a GRAMMY nomination and multiple Dove Award nods, the record trailblazed a new path of artistic and Levitical worship led by the band. Mooring explains that the bulk of LEELAND's songs have always been inspired by the communion of worship.
More recently, Mooring co-wrote one of the Church's most-sung standards, 'Lion and the Lamb', with seasoned worship writers Brenton Brown and Brian Johnson. The song cemented his personal status as a young veteran in the sphere of modern worship music, further affirming that LEELAND as a collective are drawn into crafting songs that court congregations across the globe to worship God through the act of singing - and singing together.
The last few years have been more hidden for LEELAND, allowing them to dig deep into rich ideas and the unending depth of the Scriptures. Carrying on the legacy of their unique voice in the worship world, they announce a new album, 'City of God', leaning into a fearless exploration of a pastoral and prophetic voice of worship where songs are sung together and over the people of God. 'Heart & Flesh', the first single featuring TAYA, set the scene with a track infused with meditative sonorities and soul-grabbing words that unveils the artistic and Levitical universe of LEELAND's upcoming record. The new album features many collaborations, including Charity Gayle, Rita Springer, Lauren Straham (Fleurie) and Vanessa Hill.
