With career sales now exceeding two million albums, celebrated pop group FFH releases its latest studio project, The Way We Worship, on Oct. 16. FFH’s first worship record, The Way We Worship features an eclectic mix of traditional hymns and original, modern worship songs, including lead radio single “As For Me,” currently vying for adds at Christian radio.
The Way We Worship was initially inspired by FFH member Jennifer Deibler’s nightly bedtime ritual with her children. As Jennifer’s husband and FFH co-founder Jeromy Deibler recalls, “We’d tuck them in together, then I’d slip out of the room as she quietly sang the same few songs night after night. A few years ago, Jennifer had the idea to record a few of those songs for the kids to remember when they got older.”
Jennifer’s folksy vocals shine on acoustic versions of classics including “Come Thou Fount,” “Jesus Name Above All Names,” “What a Friend We Have in Jesus,” and “Jesus Paid It All.” The remainder of the album reflects Jeromy’s role as worship leader at his home church and features several songs he produced for corporate worship. The result is, as he describes, “a blend of our rich traditional pasts and our favorite elements of the modern church music we participate in every week.”
He continues, “This project literally started in our home, in the sweetest hours of twilight, while our kids drifted off to sleep and ended up becoming a record that is likely to outlast anything we’ve recorded up until now. It captures the spirit of our young family and the adventure we are living as we try to walk the ancient paths while living in the current system. This music is our roots, our history, and the soundtrack of our lives. It truly is the way we worship.”
The record’s debut single “As For Me,” co-written by award-winning songwriter/producer Jason Ingram, is now impacting the Christian AC, CHR, and Inspo formats. It is currently available via iTunes at http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/as-for-me-radio-edit-single/id561101392.The Way We Worship will be
