iPraise – recording underway

by Mike Burn on November 20, 2009

I’m writing this post from a beach in the Caribbean – Jamaica to be precise – where Sue, Josie and I have come for a friend’s wedding, which took place yesterday. It was a wonderful day, and a great celebration.

At the same time this week, my thoughts are back in the UK and the south coast in particular, where Tom Mills and Steve Harding have begun work on the next FW recording – “iPraise”. This album has been a long time coming, but I’m very excited as now feels exactly the right time to be recording, and I am really looking forward to working with Tom & Steve and seeing what they come up with. As usual, we have provided some very rough stones by the way of elementary demos of the songs, and I am sure they will polish up a diamond or two…

As well as a number of new songs (including a couple from Chris Juby, and one from Anju Ebanks), we’ll be covering one or two FW favourites, like “Dance on the streets” and “I will lift up the name of the Lord” – songs which we use live regularly, and which warrant a 21st century makeover in terms of arrangements. Should be fun to hear how things shape up.

We appreciate your prayers as always – we are hoping this recording will be full of power and passion for praise, and especially that it will inspire all ages, including the rising generation, to be whole-hearted worshippers.

Watch this space…
