What You Need To Know
Recorded live at Planetshakers Church in Melborne, Australia, Planetshakers releases their latest project, Rain Part 1 (Live).
What It Sounds Like
Once again, Planetshakers delivers a collection of songs that showcase their ability to put a unique spin on worship music. A standout feature on Rain Part 1 (Live) is the way Planetshakers blends the stylistic influence popular in current Pop/EDM music with those classic anthemic lyrics, powerful piano and bass, and electric guitar riffs that we've come to know them for. This EP delivers both moments of joyful praise that you can dance to ("All Around," "I Lift Your Name") and tender, prayerful worship ("Right Now," "Fire Fall").
Both "All Around" and "I Lift Your Name" carry themes of Jesus being with us at all times and the truth that we can lift up His name everywhere that we go, at every moment, in everything we do. The lyrics make me think of Colossians 3:16-17: "Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through him to God the Father."
Best Song On The Record
"I Lift Your Name" wins for best song on the record. Upbeat and fun, it's a song you can not only sing along to but can integrate into your daily life because it reminds you to praise and represent Jesus in everything you do.
For Fans Of
The Belonging, Elevation Worship, Israel & New Breed
If you're looking for an EP with a combination of high-energy praise, tender moments of devotion and surrender, and lyrics that will inspire you to live truth every day, Rain Part 1 (Live) is it.
