“This album no longer belongs to us or these other incredible voices who lent their talents to it, it belongs to you. It’s your stories, your heartfelt conversations, texts, FaceTimes and gifts that have inspired and reinspired us along the way – honestly, you have given this catalog of songs a whole new meaning and life, and not only given us the courage to keep stepping forward, but have also helped us find redemption in our own stories.”
This is the statement given by Joel and Luke Smallbone, the brothers who make up the pair for KING & COUNTRY, a country-rock Christian musician duo who have been steadily setting the world ablaze with their take on faith-based music.
Burn The Ships was a glorious album in its first incarnation, but now, with remixes and collaborations added to the tracklisting, it is more than a new release – it’s a celebration of everything this brilliant band has accomplished throughout their career so far, a milestone that they have reached with the support of their ever-growing fanbase and the humble yet determined personalities they bring into each and every melodic line.
Included in this spectacular tracklisting is the latest single “Amen (Reborn) [feat. Lecrae + The WRLDFMS Tony Williams],” a song about renaissance and renewal. for KING & COUNTRY first teamed up with Lecrae on his track “Messengers” in 2015, earning the inaugural GRAMMY Award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song that year.
Earlier this year, for KING & COUNTRY continued to expand their palette by joining with labelmates Hannah Ellis and Jackson Michelson to release “TOGETHER (The Country Collaboration)” – a brand new rendition of the duo’s multi-week No. 1 hit. This song appears on the track listing in the form of a duet with Kirk Franklin & Tori Kelly, and is a phenomenally beautiful addition to this album.
Including Collaborations Featuring Dolly Parton, Timbaland, and more, this deluxe edition of Burn The Ships proves that for KING & COUNTRY has what is takes to branch out from the confines of Christian rock music and bring their universally uplifting and hopeful sound to the whole world.
Burn The Ships (Deluxe Edition: Remixes & Collaborations) is out everywhere on March 26th, 2021.
