"Expectation," the highly anticipated new single from Elias Dummer released over the weekend. Penned by Dummer, Ben Cantelon (Kari Jobe, The Belonging Co), and co-produced by Brent Milligan (Colony House, David Crowder Band), "Expectation" is the first release from Dummer's upcoming full-length project, The Work Vol. II
 
Co-writer of such prolific worship anthems as "Manifesto" and "Holy (Wedding Day)," Dummer's signature style stands front and center on "Expectation." With anticipatory lyrics inviting the surrender of world-weary hearts into Jesus' hands, the track steadily builds to a soaring chorus proclaiming the assurance of Christ's promises and His kingdom to come.  
 
"I cannot shake this desire that burns deep in my heart to see and know the reign and rule of Jesus in my life and the world," Dummer shares about "Expectation." "Whether we come with the trust and wonder of a child or we come with trepidation and questions echoing in our head, either way, God can take it. We can come in expectation knowing He is with us, and when He makes a promise, He comes through. God meets us where we are and will awaken a holy fire so we might see Him for who He is and reflect His goodness out into the world, having tasted heaven for a moment." 
 
"'Expectation' is a call to worship--naming the various states and struggles we each experience at different times in our lives when approaching God," he adds. "When the concept first came to me, I had no idea just how urgent and encouraging this song would become in the wake of the past year and a half."
 
Elias Dummer co-founded and fronted one of Canada's most acclaimed worship bands, The City Harmonic. As the group's principal songwriter, he helped pen such hits as "Manifesto", which served as the theme song for 2011's National Day of Prayer and was the walkup music for Major League Baseball player Seth Smith. The City Harmonic earned 12 GMA Canada Covenant Awards and a Juno Award before disbanding in 2017. 

Dummer released his solo debut, The Work Vol. I, in 2019 and was named Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the 2020 Covenant Awards. In addition, his debut single, "Enough," spent 26 weeks on Billboard's Christian Airplay chart. With more than 65 million lifetime streams to date, Dummer's music--both as a solo artist and with The City Harmonic--appeared on charts in more than 30 countries around the world in 2020 alone. His next project, The Work Vol. II is a collection of Psalm-like songs evoking moments of worship and lament. The album is set to release later this year.
