Rend Collective, which comprises of Gareth Gilkeson, Chris Llewellyn, Ali Gilkeson, Patrick Thompson, and Stephen Mitchell, releases a new song, "Plans," from a forthcoming new album. The song reminds us that despite our circumstances, "You got plans for me, You got plans for me/Greater than my wildest dreams, stronger than the enemy."
The Northern Irish band writes, "We've gone through seasons where we just haven't seen the answers to our prayers...but there is hope in the promises of scripture: God has plans for us even when we lose sight of them."
"The song 'Plans' is about that place where we often find ourselves - the grey space between faith and fear," shares Rend Collective. "When we haven't seen the answer to our prayers. There are elements of the song that hang unresolved, which is real to life. It's an emotion we wanted to capture musically. We wrote this song as a pillar for us to lean on. In some ways, this song is for us as much as it is for you. We need help remembering to trust in the character of God, even when things shift around. This song reminds us that ultimately, God has a plan for our lives.
"This song will lead to more new music from the group as they wrap up an album that will release in the fall. With more than 597 million career streams, a No. 1 Billboard Top Christian / Gospel album debut with their album Choose to Worship, a Top 5 radio single, "Counting Every Blessing," and an RIAA Gold and Platinum single with "My Lighthouse," Rend Collective is an authentic worship experience.
The live show from Rend Collective has captured audiences worldwide with several major tours with top artists like Chris Tomlin, Kari Jobe, Lecrae, and most recently MercyMe. They have also headlined tours across the USA, Canada, Australia, and Europe. Next month, they will embark on their headline European with special guest Matt Maher.
