Christian Music News, New Christian Music News Today, Integrity Music announces the release of Better Word from GRAMMY®-nominated worship group Leeland. Better Word, their first full-length live album, will drop September 13, 2019. The first single, "Way Maker," is available now.

Leeland, comprised of founding frontman Leeland Mooring and fellow singer/songwriter and worship leader Casey Moore, have spent a decade-plus career considering what worship truly means through the medium they know best - music. Inspiring and facilitating musical worship in various settings around the world, Mooring and Moore have a unique front-row vantage point to observe how people's perspectives of God, others, and themselves are shaped by personal moments of praise. It explains why Better Word, Leeland's eighth release, is a live 12-song worship experience, captured earlier this year during a gathering of fellow worshipers at Christ For The Nations (CFN) in Dallas, Texas. 

As for the songwriting and accumulating of songs for Better Word, Mooring explains, "We usually don't start seeing a theme emerge until we're in that mode of finishing songs, but right in the thick of Better Word we found that all of these songs weren't trying to be anything. They were simple, easy to sing, and the lyrical themes were either about Jesus and His goodness, or songs of faith that challenge us to lift our eyes off of our circumstances and onto the face of Jesus. I really feel like it's a returning back to the things Leeland did at first."
 
The album's third track, "Way Maker," is a powerful favorite of Mooring and Moore. Originally made popular by Nigerian gospel singer Sinach, the globally rising worship standout has quickly, and inspiringly, gained traction in churches around the world. It's no wonder why Mooring and Moore wanted to cut their own rendition of the song, which is available now with any pre-order of Better Word. A video for the song also released today, which can be viewed here. Additional songs will become available as instant grats in the coming weeks leading up to September 13.

As young veterans in the world of modern worship music, Better Word is bound to further cement Leeland as a primary musical leader in the world's progressing modern worship music movement. But for Mooring, worship is much more than a lyric, or a song, or even the gathering and singing.

"Worship is a combination of alone time with Jesus that is planned, and the not-so-planned moments -- all of the in-between times in the day when I'm reminding myself to fix my heart and mind on Him," he explains. "It's incredible how fast singing, saying, and thinking on Him so quickly changes my attitude and perspective."
