Integrity Music announces today the upcoming global release of the highly-anticipated worship album, Kingdom, from Covenant Worship, the dynamic music ministry of Dallas, TX-based Covenant Church. Set to release July 1, this will be Covenant Church’s second recording released internationally in partnership with Integrity Music. The full record will also be available to stream exclusively for a limited time through NewReleaseTuesday.com beginning June 24.
Recorded live at Covenant Church, a 10,000 member, multi-cultural and multi-campus congregation led by Pastors Mike and Kathy Hayes, Kingdom features Covenant’s choir and worship team led by worship pastors David and Nicole Binion. Kingdom also features Covenant worship leaders Joshua Defrene and Colin Edge and guest vocals from five-time GRAMMY Award winner, Israel Houghton, who produced the project and co-wrote eight of the album’s tracks.
The Covenant Worship team explains the journey that led to their latest album, Kingdom:
Our Senior Pastor Mike Hayes was talking about getting to a new place with God—a place that’s more than simply a restoration of how things used to be…some place entirely new, a place of creativity and breakthrough that will flow out from our church here in Dallas, TX and affect the nations. The words that he shared in our church got us all thinking, and over the days and weeks that followed, we found that we’re talking about something that we call a ‘kingdom renaissance.’ In time, these prayers and conversations became an album – called Kingdom.
We talk about the way that the Renaissance represented a wave of new art, literature and ideas that shifted a culture from the old world into the new. It’s that very word – ‘renaissance’ – that jumps inside us. Pretty soon we’re finding that new songs are unleashed, and our church is being taken to an exciting new place in our worship… The result? A collection of songs that aim to take the people of God to a new mindset, a new plane as the body of Christ. The simple, beautiful, life-changing truth is that God has a great plan in mind for His people. He always has, and He always does. The church of Jesus Christ now lives in a world of dramatic and rapid change, and God is giving us creative ideas that the world will look to for direction and inspiration. This is the heartbeat of our church, and the heartbeat of the ‘kingdom renaissance.’
Capturing the live worship experience at Covenant Church, Kingdom introduces 12 new songs, including the title track, plus the exclusive bonus song, “I Am Loved Medley,” to be released as part of the digital album.

We are happy to announce the signing of Belfast, Northern Ireland’s Bluetree and the forthcoming international release of the band’s new album, Worship & Justice.
Led by founder Aaron Boyd, Bluetree is an organic band, drawing from members of local Belfast churches and from friends in local church communities around the world. They are perhaps best known for their passionate pursuit of social justice, working hand-in-hand with local and international ministries to end human trafficking. In fact it was while leading worship on a church missions trip to Pattaya, Thailand, that they penned their most popular song, “God Of This City,” which has been recorded by a variety of artists, most notably Chris Tomlin and the Passion movement. Boyd recalls that as they were playing in Pattaya, he began to spontaneously sing the lyrics of the song, calling out God’s sovereignty in one of the world’s most notorious locations for human trafficking and the sex trade.
The Bluetree team lives out this “worship + music + justice” ethos through serving their families and their local church in Belfast, sharing their musical gifts and mentoring and encouraging others there and abroad. The band’s passion for justice flows out of their worship, a natural extension of the members’ relationships with Christ and the heart of their church.
“Our response to worship is mission and justice, taking all that we have and allowing others who do not have to benefit,” explains Boyd. “We speak for those who cannot speak for themselves and bring injustice from the darkness into the light.”
“I remember the first time I watched Bluetree play at a small festival in Ireland before ‘God Of This City’ had even been heard by the Passion team, and I was blown away by the band’s passion and energy,” said Adrian Thompson, Integrity’s Vice President of A&R. “After being on the sidelines with Bluetree for several years, we are honored that they have chosen to make Integrity their label partner. Their passion to reach the broken – both the oppressed and the oppressors – with the love of Jesus through song and action, is an inspiration and a challenge to the Church.”
The father of two young daughters, Boyd says that much of the Bluetree team’s focus has been on human trafficking and sexual abuse, “exposing the evil, rescuing the victims, and bringing them life as God intends for all of us.” The band works to raise money and support for ministries such as Ratanak International, World Orphans and Christian Freedom International and also provides on-the-ground support, often traveling the globe for mission support in Cambodia, Thailand, Haiti and Burma (Myanmar).
Not surprisingly, many of the band’s songs are inspired by their journey, including “God of This City,” as well as “Jesus Healer,” a song born out of a sermon series and Boyd’s experience as the father of a child with Cystic Fibrosis.
The song “Jesus Healer” along with a cadre of new songs will be featured on the Worship & Justice album set to release August 26.
Additional information on the music and ministry of Bluetree can be found at www.Bluetreeworship.com.
We are so excited to announce the re-signing of trailblazing worship leader Lincoln Brewster, building on a 15-year relationship with the California-based musician who helped put a rock spin on modern worship while introducing the genre to contemporary Christian radio.
“I am honored to announce that after 15 years, Integrity Music will continue to serve as the music partner for Lincoln Brewster and his ministry going forward,” said C. Ryan Dunham, President of Integrity Music. “I have had the privilege of getting to know Lincoln and his wife Laura on a personal level and love their heart, their passion for serving and their dedication to their local church. It is a privilege to come alongside an artist like Lincoln, who has such incredible talent that he is choosing to use for God’s glory.”
Originally signed to the label in the late 90s, Integrity released Brewster’s first album, a self-titled debut in 1999 when modern worship music comprised only a small niche within Christian music before becoming the top-selling genre that it is today. Eight albums later, Brewster has made an indelible impact on modern worship, opening doors at Christian radio for other worship artists with his singles “Everlasting God,” “Let The Praises Ring,” “Love The Lord,” “Today Is The Day,” “Salvation Is Here,” “The Power Of Your Name” and more.
“In 1999, the only worship singles that were getting any significant airplay on Christian radio were songs from the debut SONICFLOOd project and Lincoln Brewster,” says acclaimed radio consultant Chris Hauser.
“I can distinctly remember getting adds for “Take Me Higher,” “The Power of Your Name” (with Jars of Clay’s Dan Haseltine) and even “Lord I Lift Your Name on High,” he continues. “These songs were taking root on radio playlists, opening doors for Lincoln as a ‘sure thing’ for great corporate, vertical songs that fit on radio while also paving the way for Chris Tomlin, Hillsong, the Passion movement records and many others.”
Looking ahead to August, Brewster and Integrity are preparing for a global release of his new album, Oxygen, which is co-produced by Brewster and Colby Wedgeworth and features all new songs penned by Brewster including the project’s first radio single, “Made New.”
“Lincoln is a renowned guitarist, songwriter, artist and worship leader who has produced many great albums and songs,” adds Dunham. “But with this new album, Oxygen, people are going to experience a whole new Lincoln Brewster. It’s a new sound with a nod to the past and a bold step forward… I believe it is his best album yet.”
Music has been an integral part of Lincoln Brewster’s life since early childhood when he would “sit in” on rehearsals with his mother as she played with local bands in their hometown of Homer, Alaska. By age five, Brewster was playing the mandolin and by age nine, he had picked up the electric guitar. That love for music took him down a winding road that included a season playing for rocker Steve Perry (Journey) and recording offers from mainstream labels all before he was 21. But Brewster, who had made a commitment to Christ in his late teens, walked away from the promise of rock stardom and instead took a position at his local church as a sound technician.
Years later, Brewster is again playing before thousands, this time leading people in worship at music festivals and concerts across the U.S., and at Bayside Church near Sacramento, California, where he serves as Worship Arts Pastor. Brewster’s recordings include the albums Real Life, Joy To The World, Today Is The Day, Let The Praises Ring, All To You and Amazed.
Stuart Townend is one of today’s leading worship songwriters. Hymns such as In Christ Alone, How Deep The Father’s Love and The Power Of The Cross are sung in churches around the world, while the skill and depth of his lyric writing has drawn some to compare his contribution to hymnody to that of Watts and Wesley. Aside from writing, Stuart travels around the UK and abroad, leading worship at events such as Keswick and Mission Worship, and performing concerts on his own or with his band. An accomplished musician, arranger and producer, he also has years of experience in teaching and training musicians who serve in local church worship.
