Applauded by critics and listeners alike, the album’s debut single, “Greater Things,” garnered over 2.4 million streams globally upon its release, and close to 400,000 views of the video on YouTube. Collectively, Brock’s three pre-release singles have clocked more than 33,000 in consumption and four million streams worldwide. In early summer, Brock released “Into Dust,” a single inspired by New York Times best-selling author Lysa Terkeurst’s recent journey through adversity as told in her forthcoming book, It's Not Supposed to Be This Way.
Last year, after a decade of being on staff, leading worship and producing the albums of Elevation Worship, Brock felt that the Lord was ending his assignment at Elevation Church and made the difficult decision to peacefully resign. Having no inclination as to where the Lord was leading next, he was able to spend time reflecting and writing and then, unexpected to him, began a new season as a solo artist. With lyrics that are relatable to so many, Greater Things considers what it means to step into the unknown by faith, believing for something, even when what is to come has yet to be seen.
“Knowing God was changing my assignment from being on staff at Elevation Church to something new and different was honestly terrifying,” says Brock. “Not knowing what's next and stepping out in faith can be terrifying for all of us, but we serve a good God, a big God who doesn’t leave us or forsake us. I’m learning that it's far more terrifying to not walk in obedience than it is to take that step into the unknown. This album has helped me with that journey. The songs on this project have been reminders to me of God’s faithfulness and of His never-ending love for us. I hope that listeners find the same encouragement as I have in this season.”
Brock, who has toured with a variety of notable artists--including Rend Collective on 30 dates across the country last spring--will hit the road alongside Mosaic MSC and Cody Carnes on the “Heaven Tour” this fall.
