Nashville, Tenn. (July 1, 2016) - Incorporating breathtaking imagery from Israel, platinum-selling Hillsong UNITED will debut Of Dirt And Grace - Live From The Land available from July 15 - a LIVE visual take on songs from their best-selling record, EMPIRES.
The Beatitudes served as the essence and inspiration for their 2015 release, leading to the band’s aspiration to film where Jesus preached the Sermon on the Mount along with additional Biblically historic locations in and around Jerusalem and the areas surrounding the Sea of Galilee, the empty tomb near Golgotha and more. Included in the CD and DVD/long form video format are 12 LIVE tracks filmed and recorded on location, including EMPIRES’ favorites “Touch The Sky,” “Say The Word” and “Even When It Hurts (Praise Song)” along with three bonus tracks. Among the additional tracks, the platinum-selling “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail).” Pre-order Of Dirt And Grace – Live From The Land and receive an instant grat of “Prince Of Peace."
"We wanted to do something really special and show the songs in a different light – we recorded the songs live and on location in some of the most beautiful places we have been – it was surreal being in the places Jesus ministered. We hope people feel a little of what we experienced," shares Joel Houston.
HillsongUNITED.com will feature photos and blogs chronicling their time in Israel along with the LIVE video of "Prince Of Peace."
