Worship artist Phil King releases today (Feb. 14) his first single, "Song Of Redemption," from his full-length label debut album, All Glory, set to release March 6 and available to preorder now from Gateway Music, home for the music artistry of Gateway Church. The single is at digital and streaming outlets globally, including Apple Music, iTunes, Spotify, YouTube Music, Google Music, Pandora, Deezer and more.
"Song Of Redemption" was recorded live Nov. 8 at Christ for the Nations Institute in Dallas, produced by UPPERROOM's director Matt Fish (Jeremy Riddle, Jason Upton, Leeland) and co-written by UPPERSOOM's Hanna Sheets.
"This song carries an incredible message of how when people's eyes are first opened to their sin, there is initially remorse and sadness," says King, "but then God hears, just around the corner, an incredible sound of worship and thanksgiving rising from them because He is going to redeem them through the answer of His Son Jesus' death, burial and resurrection."
When I was an outcast You said I belong
You wrote a melody with all of my wrongs
When my eyes were opened to all I had done
I saw my sin, but You heard a song
Glorify His name forever
It is Jesus, it is Jesus
You have turned it all around
("Song Of Redemption, first verse and chorus)
Along with the single and companion "Song Of Redemption" video that premiered on NewReleaseToday.com and is available to stream now on YouTube, King's upcoming All Glory includes Revelation 4 and 5 inspired songs like the title track, "Greater Realms of Glory" (co-written with Michael Farren), "Deliverance" (co-written with Ethan Hulse and David Moore and featuring guest vocals by Gateway's Lauren Mwonga), "Banner" (co-written with Oscar Gamboa and Cody Ray Lee and featuring guest vocals by UPPERROOM's Joel Figueroa), "So Worthy," "Our Great God" and more. Every song on All Glory is uniquely singable with messages that are meant to resonate and be remembered by congregations around the world.
"God is looking for true worshippers; people who worship in the Spirit and in truth," King says, quoting John 4:23. "My hope is that these simple songs help in that process. I feel this burden to always keep pointing people to Jesus."

About Phil King:
For much of the last decade, King honed his craft, working with Jennie Lee Riddle ("Revelation Song"), Leeland, Lauren Daigle and many other influential singers and songwriters. He also sang on two Michael W. Smith albums when he was younger and traveled with him as a vocalist. King further released his pro-life anthem "Not Forgotten," which was written last year in response to a New York law that permitted late-term abortions. The song caught the attention of FOX News, CBN, EWTN and Focus on the Family, which tapped King to lead the song as the closing anthem for 20,000 people in Times Square at its "Alive from New York," the largest pro-life event ever held in New York City.
Hailing from Turlock, CA and now based in Dallas, King has led worship at conferences around the world, written a book on worship and released an independent album, Giants & Oceans, in 2014. After leading the worship department at Christ for the Nations Institute in Dallas, he is now a fulltime worship pastor at Gateway Church. His aim is to carry the Presence of God everywhere he goes and the message of loving God with all that we are.
