friends always make music more fun

August 20th, 2010

ASHLEA BRENEMAN – In my opinion, friends always make music more fun. It’s better to play with other people and it’s more fun to sing loud in the car when others are joining in with you. Apparently, Jars of Clay shares my belief. On October 5th, Jars will release Jars of Clay Presents The Shelter. This album dwells on the idea of community – both physical and spiritual. What better way to achieve that then to have all of your friends join in during the songwriting and recording process? Jars of Clay rounded up a ton of their friends to make one of the most anticipated releases of the year. Check out the track listing for the new album… take notice that there is only one song that doesn’t have a guest vocalist!

  • Small Rebellions (featuring Brandon Heath) (4:48)
  • Call My Name (featuring Thad Cockrell, Audrey Assad) (4:08)
  • We Will Follow (featuring Gungor) (4:09)
  • Eyes Wide Open (featuring Mac Powell, Derek Webb, Burlap To Cashmere) (4:28)
  • Shelter (featuring TobyMac, Audrey Assad, Brandon Heath) (4:50)
  • Out Of My Hands (featuring Mike Donehey, Leigh Nash) (4:14)
  • No Greater Love (4:07)
  • Run In The Night (featuring Thad Cockrell) (5:25)
  • Lay It Down (featuring David Crowder, Dawn Richardson) (4:03)
  • Love Will Find Us (featuring Sara Groves, Matt Maher) (5:45)
  • Benediction (featuring Amy Grant) (2:52)
  • That is quite the impressive line-up to an already incredibly talented group of guys. Their hope with the new album is to give new songs to the church. Hopefully your church will be adding some of these songs into their normal repertoire soon! If you’d like to listen to clips of all of the songs, head over to Jesusfreakhideout to hear the great music coming out October 5th!

    Jars of Clay will be stopping in the Lancaster area with Brandon Heath on Friday, October 8th.

      I am going to that concert! Jars of Clay has been a great band in the industry; singing songs after God’s heart. Their musical talent spans the years. I still love “Flood” from way back when. I will be certain to check out their new album…perhaps in my car
