Former Mars Hill Church Worship leader Dustin Kensrue also known as The Modern Post has released his new Christmas EP, 'Lowborn King." The EP features five songs including Kensrue's take on Christmas classics as well as a re-recording of his own song 'This Is War'.

Kensrue shares:  "I love Christmas songs and there's a few classics on this EP that I haven't tackled before, as well as a new arrangement of my song 'This Is War' with an added bridge that some friends and I wrote a couple years back."

"There's also my new arrangement of a great song called 'Child of Glory' by my friend Brian Eichelberger, who is also the producer of this EP and my album The Water & The Blood. Lastly I wrote a new arrangement of 'Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence,' a very old Christmas hymn that we lifted a bit out of it's overly somber vibe and added a new chorus. 

In the end, I think that what really defined the overall direction for this project was that rather than trying to shoot for some sort of classic Christmas vibe, we set out to let the lyrical content really drive the arrangements and moods of each song and I'm really pleased with the result."

Last year Kensrue released his solo worship project 'The Water and The Blood', which was well-received by fans and media debuting at No. 4 on the Billboard Christian chart, No. 52 on the Billboard 200 chart and No. 10 on the overall Vinyl chart. The album was a collection of mostly original worship songs, blending modern musical sensibilities and sounds with lyrics expounding a depth of theological truth.
