The NINE BEATS Collective Making Concept Album About The Beatitudes

Aug 24 2016

The NINE BEATS Collective is making a concept album exploring the ancient wisdom of 'The Beatitudes'. Artists from UK, Uganda, Denmark & USA are collaborating on songs, instrumentals and spoken word to present 'NINE BEATS' as a counter-cultural narrative for our times.

Amongst the musicians is the world renowned guitarist (and now also a minister in the USA) Caleb Quaye who has played and recorded with Elton John, Hall & Oates, Mick Jagger and many more. The project is being produced by Tony Bean, founder of MOBO winners 5AM.

"These words speak about another world being possible, another way of being human: in these turbulent times, could they actually offer us steps to a new reality?" asks the collective. "NINE BEATS explores these powerful notions - and presents them back to the culture around us through music and art."

"The arts and theology and spiritual formation are really great conversation partners because... we're invited to question the assumptions of the systems that we are part of... they point out that the emperor has no clothes on and then invoke the possibility of newness to come... there’s a longing inside of us for another world, something better than what’s here right now... the Beatitudes invite us in to that possibility and say there is a new way to be human, another world is possible", said author and speaker Mark Scandrette.
