Alive & Breathing I EP| Posted November 20, 2019
This is the first of four Alive & Breathing releases from Matt Maher. Each EP will feature three songs - a new song, a version of a song that Maher has written for other artists but hasn’t recorded himself, and a live version of some of Maher’s previous songs. Here are a few comments on each song on Vol. 1. Run to the Father – This song was written by Maher with Cody Carnes and Ran Jackson and produced by Bernie Herms. The powerful song of surrender features piano, strings, drums, and backing choir vocals.
Key lyric: I run to the Father, I fall into grace I’m done with the hiding, no reason to wait My heart needs a surgeon, my soul needs a friend So, I’ll run to the Father, again and again Lord, I Need You (Señor, Te Necesito) – This is a live version of Maher’s worship song “Lord, I Need You”, which Maher recorded with Bianca, who sings in Spanish. Maher wrote the song with Christy Nockels, Daniel Carson, Jesse Reeves and Kristian Stanfill. The song features piano, bass, guitar, drums, and the audience singing along. The voices of Maher and Bianca blend well. White Flag – This is a live version of a song that Chris Tomlin originally recorded at the Passion Conference. Maher wrote the song with Tomlin, Jason Ingram and Matt Redman. The song features synth, drums, guitar, bass and the audience singing along.
Key lyric: We raise our white flag We surrender all to you, all for you We raise our white flag, the war is over Love has come, your love has won
