Internationally recognized praise and worship band Planetshakers globally released "The Rock" this weekend from Venture3Media (V3M). Available now at all major digital and streaming outlets, the new single goes for adds at radio on April 28 and is meant to bring hope and encouragement to people around the world.
"I love seeing people receive and live out the revelation that whatever we face in the coming days, we will never walk alone because Jesus is always faithful, forever true," says Pastor Russell Evans. "He's the Rock that will never move and upon which we can confidently stand firm upon."
Featuring Planetshakers' Joth Hunt on lead vocals, "The Rock" was co-written by Hunt along with GRAMMY-nominated and Dove Award-winning Jordan Sapp and Krissy Nordhoff.
For the first time, Planetshakers also tapped Sapp to produce. Bringing his production expertise to "The Rock," Sapp is known for his work producing hit singles by TobyMac, Tauren Wells, Jeremy Camp, and Jordan Feliz, among others.
"I'm so grateful to work with the Planetshakers crew on this song," says Sapp. "I believe it's an important message for our time, and I'm excited to see where it goes."
Along with "The Rock" and the newest live version of "Nothing Is Impossible," a song that has received over 150 million streams to date across various platforms, plus the recently released, "Yes And Amen," Planetshakers' current, full production live album GREATER and its companion GREATER: Live At Chapel project both released last fall. The chapel album re-crafts GREATER songs in a musically accessible way for smaller gatherings and was recorded by the band on a mountaintop vista near Melbourne, Australia, along with Planetshakers Bible College students.
