Worship duo All Sons & Daughters have released their self-titled studio album this week. The duo, composed of David Leonard and Leslie Jordan, co-wrote the tracks with Stu G (Delirious?), Francesca Battestelli, Derek Webb, Leeland and Jack Mooring (Leeland), Jason Ingram and Sandra McCracken.
Produced by Paul Mabury, the resulting joyful, celebratory album includes not only new co-writes, but also songs previously recorded live and now reinterpreted in the studio, such as congregational favorites 'Great Are You Lord' and 'God With Us'. In these and all the original worship compositions for this eponymous release, Leslie and David continue to pursue authenticity and honesty in the music they make.
"We've allowed ourselves to be more creative, more reflective of who we are, while still writing songs for the church," Leslie says of the self-titled album.
The cover artwork was created by Deeann Rieves for All Sons & Daughters. "We asked Deeann, who is familiar with our work, to listen to the new record and paint a piece that fits what you hear. What you see on the cover is really unique," says David.
"We feel like we're standing on the foundation of the fragments and pieces, musically speaking, building on the changes we’ve encountered over the past few years."
The duo heads overseas for their first tour of Europe, hitting the UK for Big Church Day Out (25th May), Glasgow, Scotland (31st May) and Uppsala, Sweden (31st July) amidst several events in the US before starting the fall Neon Steeple tour with Crowder in October.
