For those familiar to New Wine and their events you will know that worship is a key component of all they do and is central to their vision.
The 2016 live album entitled “Simple Pursuit” is yet another opportunity for those involved in the project to capture those moments experienced by the people who attended the yearly gathering and translate this in it’s truest form to the listener at home.
The projects producer, Willie Weeks, had this to say on the hopes and aims for this years live album:-
"Its been great to work on this year's NW live album. This album has felt like a real return to capturing the atmosphere and key moments of the summer gatherings. It is one of the rawest, energetic, and most real sounding recordings I've worked on and includes some special, spontaneous moments that really encapsulate all God was doing over the 2 weeks. We hope it takes you back to those incredible mornings and evenings together and yet provides a continuation of worship to our great God!” Willie Weeks, Producer of Simple Pursuit
Worship leaders on this release include Tim Hughes, and Sam Bailey who along with Karen Gillespie and Tom Eccleshall offer a great balance of well known songs such as ‘O Praise The Name’ and ‘Pocketful Of Faith’ along side newer songs which gives a real sense of familiarity whilst also providing those listening with new gems to enjoy and use in their personal worship.
This is sure to have something for everyone to enjoy and is yet another stellar example of why New Wine continues to be one of the forerunners and groundbreakers of UK Worship music.
