The new album from Steven Curtis Chapman, 're:creation' is released today, 9th August 2011. The album features six brand new songs from Steven, including the new smash hit single 'Do Everything', and eight re-imagined and re-recorded hits from Steven including 'For The Sake Of The Call', 'Speechless', 'Heaven In The Real World', 'Dive' and more.
"The entire album has a progressive and fresh acoustic sound, which reflects the energy and life found in the songs", says Sparrow Records. "The title speaks to the actual re:creation of these songs, which are re-imagined and re-recorded in a new musical space. More and most importantly though, the word re:creation speaks to the new life God is creating... re-creating... for Steven and his family as they walk forward in their lives."
"I wrote the song 'Do Everything' really to remind myself and also to encourage others that everything matters; everything we do can be done as an act of worship," says Steven. "1 Corinthians 10 says, 'Whatever you do, do it for the glory of God.' There's this tendency it seems to think of life with this line drawn down the middle where there's the spiritual stuff on one side and then just the stuff of life on the other. Really though, I think God wants us to remember, and I'm trying to learn, that whether it's walking the dog, washing the dishes, taking out the trash... to the really big spiritual moments, that all of that can be done as an act of worship and everything can be done to bring glory to the God who made us for that very purpose."
