Acclaimed album captures anthems birthed in Prayer Room, including popular worship song “Surrounded (Fight My Battles)” with never-before-released verses
UPPERROOM globally releases amidst acclaim its fourth recording and first full-length album, To The One, today (Feb. 22), through The Fuel Music. Available now at iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon.com, Google Play and more outlets internationally through the-fuel-music.lnk.to/totheone, the new full-length recording captures nine anthems that have inspired not only the members of UPPERROOM, the church in Dallas’ creative Design District that started in 2010, but also millions more around the globe.
The songs on To The One have been uniquely curated by UPPERROOM’s songwriters as they gathered together to expand melodies and lyrics spontaneously received in the ministry’s Morning/Noon/Night Prayer Room. The new music includes Surrounded (Fight My Battles),” a song that has already circled the globe, receiving millions of YouTube views after it was initially birthed in UPPERROOM’s Prayer Room. In addition to the album version of the song that includes never-before-released verses, GRAMMY award-winning producer, Seth Mosley (for King & Country, Jeremy Camp), is producing the song for radio, which will be revealed soon. The song has also been recorded by Michael W. Smith and sung by him live on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
The album further features the title track that is meant to magnify the Majesty of Jesus, “Healer,” a song inspired by Psalm 68 that expresses how God heals even in the aftermath of grief, “You and You Alone,”a grateful anthem that breaks through the wiles of tribulation and struggles in our daily lives, and “Washed,” which declares the truth of victory over sin and failure.
“We believe these songs will inspire the Church to gaze solely, in awe and wonder, at Jesus,” says Elyssa Smith, who leads worship at UPPERROOM’s main church campus in Dallas, TX. “As we've encountered Him, He's given us language to minister to Him. He is the One and every song is for Him.”
Preceding a Charisma magazine review slated for this April, WeLeadWorship.com draws comparisons to Bethel Music and All Sons & Daughters in its 4.5-star review of To The One, saying, “Each song is rich in theology…great worship.” Cross Rhythms adds in its 10 out of 10-rated review that To The One is “played with considerable skill” and will “draw you deep into worship.” Hallels echoes, “To the One is so appealing because it captures everything that has gone right about today's worship music…This is a record that demonstrates what worship needs to be like: authentic, expressive and Holy Spirit-driven.”
In addition to To The One, UPPERROOM’s current EP, Moments: Color 003, which hit No. 2 on the iTunes Christian & Gospel Albums chart when it released last month, features spontaneous moments recorded in the Prayer Room. While the songs on To The One capture the essence of each song birthed in the Prayer Room, the new EP is meant to be more of a raw, unedited live recording that invites the listener into the Prayer Room experience.
