Recording once more with London based group of producers K Collective, SOUTHVILLE's first new single "All The Praise" will release on 6th July 2018. The group from Yeovil, United Kingdom decided after the great success of the first album to return to writing straight away and release three brand new singles in 2018 rather than waiting for a full album.
"We were just brimming and overflowing with creativity and the desire to write more songs" explains Tim Williams, Worship Pastor at SOUTHVILLE Elim Church where the group originates. "The whole process of writing, recording, and releasing the first album just ignited something fresh and exciting in our church. There is a real hunger to glorify God through writing songs that come from the stories in our community, and that are written for our community! This first single is called "All The Praise" and is a really vulnerable song. When we think about praise songs we usually imagine feeling elated and jumping up and down with happiness and joy. However, we feel that praise should be something we give at all times, not just in the good, but actually when we feel broken, when life is hard, when it's not easy to see the way out.
It's in those times that we still need to give God ALL our praise. The second line of the chorus says 'with all the strength that's left, I'll lift my hands again!" - even when I only have the tiniest amount of energy and desire left, I'm still gonna use that to lift my hands and praise His name!'
SOUTHVILLE are just coming to the end of a 23 date UK tour where they have taken the message of hope from the first album to church worship nights all around the country.
