Crowder Talks About How the Story of Exodus is the Inspiration Behind His New Album


Crowder will be releasing their brand new full length album Milk and Honey on June 11th. The album is preceded by the first single "Good God Almighty" which releases today. You can listen to the song here. "Good God Almighty" is a catchy worship piece that celebrates the goodness of God, an anthem that is meant to be sung by congregations collectively.

The new album was inspired by God's promise from the book of Exodus. When God brought his people out of Egypt, he was leading them to Canaan, a land flowing with milk and honey. However, in order to get to such a destination, the Israelites had to undertake a challenging journey. It is during this journey, God makes his covenant with his people. He also gave them reminders of presence, including a fire by night and a cloud by day.

David Crowder explains: "During a season of desolation and wandering, I've been writing songs to remind me that we are headed somewhere beyond this - songs that remind me that it is the God of Abraham and Isaac, the God of Jacob, Moses and David, the God who promised a Savior and a way back to Him, it is He that we follow and He has not left us alone. On the other side of the desert is a land of covenant promise - where the blind see, the lame walk, the tears are dry, the lamb and the lion are like best buds and we see face-to-face the One who made us. In between captivity and promise, we need to be reminded."

Therefore, the songs on this record serve as tangible reminders of these promises. "We need something to sing, or hear, or touch, or see in the sky - a signal of what the truth of reality is. If we look and are diligently aware, it's all around us - in His holy scriptures, in His people, in the beauty of this world that He spoke into being, in images as concrete and as simple as a ring you can slip on your finger to remember: He is God, and He is good. This album is a celebration of the future we are marching towards together and a prayer that each of us can live in this promise in the here and now."
