Contemporary Christian rock-pop group Leeland is busy preparing for the release of their 5th studio album. This new album is the follow-up to their 2011's The Great Awakening. Thus far, no details of the album has been revealed yet.
Leeland Moorings, on Facebook, reveals: "We are working on a new leelandofficial album! It's been awhile and we have songs that have been in our hearts for years that we can't wait to sing with you!
