Provident Label Group/Sony Music announces the highly anticipated album
from THIRD DAY, Revival, will release on August
The single "Revival," which is already climbing the radio charts, is
already being lauded by stations across the nation. John Lawhon of
WBRS/Baltimore, has shared, "You can't help but smile when you hear
'Revival'. The joy from the performance is simply contagious and you can
tell the guys had a blast creating this song! I'm always looking for songs
that rise above the noise and cut through. That could be in lyric/message,
performance or in production. In the case of 'Revival' it hits all of
RETURNING TO THEIR ROOTS:
While making Revival, THIRD DAY returned to their deep musical
roots by deciding to record at the legendary Fame Studios located in Muscle
Announced exclusively on Billboard.com
yesterday, to create an album at Fame Studios, which has birthed recordings
from such icons as Etta James, Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding and more since
it opened in the 1950's, has been a dream of THIRD DAY's for more than 20
"It's one of those 'if these walls could talk' kind of things," drummer
David Carr shares. "With all of the incredible hits, the sounds the
melodies that have been created in [that] space, some of that you hope that
it rubs off a little bit."
The fruition is the 13 songs found on Revival, a deeply
Gospel-oriented album with "a blend of now, yesterday and today," Mac
Powell shares. "It's like an old-school Gospel record in that kind of way."
Partnering again with their long-time producer, mentor and friend Monroe
Jones (1999's Time, 2000's Offerings: A Worship Album,
2001's Come Together), THIRD DAY also joined with members of their
touring band in the studio. The entire recording process was a true
collaboration, with no set agenda or charts and everyone just bringing in
ideas. "We'd just get together and start playing, and it just worked,"
explains Mark Lee.
Carr continues, "It's been a really fun experience to just explore these
new spaces for us musically, sonically. You know you're on to something
when it just seems to catch fire on its own and become a thing that's
bigger than you."
"We started out in high school and we were these young kids excited about
our faith and about using music to share our faith," Lee concludes. "Here
we are all these years later and I still feel that, I still feel that He's
got something to say through us." It's a REVIVAL, indeed.
