GRAMMY nominated, internationally renowned artist collective Bethel Music are kicking off the new year with the announcement of their most ambitious project to date, Come Up Here. The 11-song offering was filmed and recorded in the Redwood Forest and serves as a testament to the majesty that God has created on earth. In celebration of the news, they have released the first song from the album, “Beauty,” which is led by David Funk. The sweeping track is a reminder that God sent his son in his image to earth to allow us to know Him.
“I love this song because it feels very simple,” shares David. “The chorus is just “Oh, you’re beautiful” and the verses build the context of why He is beautiful. It’s about acknowledging the radiance and Majesty of God. It takes us to a place of adoration and remembrance that He chose to take on the image of man to show us more of who God is.”
Captured live in the heart of the Redwoods of Northern California, Come Up Here embodies everything that Bethel Music stands for musically, lyrically, and visually. With the breathtaking Redwood Forest as a backdrop, Come Up Here, is an invitation to look up and take in the full magnificence of the celestial evergreens and reflect on the beauty of God’s glory. The stunning cinematography paired with songs that move the soul to respond make this project the most extraordinary endeavor Bethel Music has ever taken on. The hope is that as each song is heard, the presence of the living God takes over whatever space the listener is in, and that they are able to encounter Him in a way never thought possible. Come Up Here will be released on March 17th and is available for pre-save.
