New York, NY February 16, 2021 - - After months of experimenting with a remote quarantine setup, GRAMMY Award-winning singer/songwriter, producer and worship leader Israel Houghton is bringing the at-home intimacy of his Worship Wednesday sessions and the electricity of a live Israel and New Breed recording to listeners with Feels Like Home: The Quarantine Worship Experience, available globally February 26.

Recorded live, the 14-track Feels Like Home will be available to stream and to purchase in digital, CD and vinyl formats with a pre-order and instant-grat track available immediately. The Feels Like Home project blossomed out of Houghton's idea in early 2020 to remotely stream worship services, the impetus behind what would become his "Worship Wednesdays," after seeing an opportunity to explore and reinvent group worship dynamics online throughout the pandemic.

 


 
The Israel and New Breed ensemble of vocalists and musicians streamed Feels Like Home live from Houghton's sister-in-law's New York home in November after each member agreed to quarantine and test for COVID-19 prior to the gathering. Deftly led by Houghton alongside his wife, Adrienne, the ensemble performed while seated "in the round," creating a warm improvisatory looseness reminiscent of Gospel music's roots as a communal religious celebration and experience. This includes new single "Hymn of Breakthrough," a brightly burning, slow-building epiphany of the "sound of breakthrough" as it echoes throughout the ensemble.
 
"New Breed celebrated our 20th year together in 2020," says Houghton. "And although the entire landscape changed with how we do concerts and touring, we knew it was still important to come together. I'm grateful for the sacrifices made by everyone on our team to carefully gather and participate in this offering. Truth be told, it's one of the most rewarding worship experiences I've ever been a part of."
