EP features brand new song, radio single “Light Of The World” alongside holiday favorites recorded Planetshakers-style
Internationally recognized praise band Planetshakers releases Christmas Vol 2 Nov. 23 from Venture3Media (V3M). Available to preorder now at iTunes, Amazon.com and Google Play, the second Christmas offering from Planetshakers features urban pop-infused recordings of the classics “O Come All Ye Faithful” and “The First Noel” alongside the worshipful soundscape “O Holy Night.”
Christmas Vol 2 also features Planetshakers worship leader Joth Hunt leading his declarative new song, “Light Of The World,” which is going for adds now at AC and CHR radio.
“Christmas is all about Jesus. He is the reason we celebrate. It’s a time of joy,” says Hunt, who is also credited with producing and arranging the four-song EP. “But unfortunately for some, it can be a time of darkness. This song encourages everybody to remember that Jesus is the Light of the world (John 8:12). He brings hope to all!”
The new EP follows last year’s Christmas Vol 1 from Planetshakers, which features the original song “It's Christmas” and the joyful, pop and R&B-infused “Hark,” “Joy To The World” and “Silent Night.”
Planetshakers also released its Heaven On Earth album and Heaven On Earth Part Three EP last month amidst acclaim. The recordings simultaneously became the No. 1 and No. 2 top selling Christian recordings respectively on iTunes in Australia while posting Top 10 overall positions in multiple countries around the world. Heaven On Earth has also been streamed well over 11 million times so far on just Spotify and YouTube combined.
The “Heaven On Earth” title track, which was produced by Bryan Fowler (TobyMac, Chris Tomlin) and Micah Kuiper, is further garnering airplay at radio, becoming Billboard’s No. 1 most added song on the USA Hot AC / CHR radio charts for two consecutive weeks.
A tangible, intentional expression of worshippers collectively pursuing the presence of God, Heaven On Earth was recorded during Planetshakers Kingdom Conference held in Melbourne, Australia this past April at Hisense Arena and at its regional conferences attended by tens-of-thousands in Philippines, Malaysia and Singapore.
Sharing the new music from Heaven On Earth along with favorites like “The Anthem,” “Endless Praise” and “Nothing Is Impossible” while on tour, Planetshakers Band recently wrapped up its events in Central, South and North America, South Africa, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, South Korea and Taiwan. Next up is Nigeria and the Philippines before circling back to Malaysia and a tour of Australia.
