On the heels of winning their 9th and 10th career GMA Dove Awards (10.29), Selah releases their new album, Step Into My Story, today.
Lauded by Thrive Global for its “lustrous, gorgeously uplifting, and delectably tranquil music,” the beloved band - whose name means “pause” in Hebrew - hopes the album’s 10 songs encourage its listeners to breathe, reflect, and find comfort in a sense of unity and renewal.
"There are stories behind every song we have recorded for this album," says Selah's Todd Smith. "Pain and heartache, and hope and purpose that I believe will connect with anyone who listens.”
"Making this record has been some of the most fun I’ve ever had in the studio. I’m so excited for it to finally be heard by everyone!" shares Amy Perry, while Allan Hall adds, "This album has been a true labor of love, especially since it is our first project on our own label! We are so excited and happy to release it to the public, where we hope the songs bring encouragement, comfort, and hope to everyone who listens!"
Step Into My Story has earned early critical praise, with Medium's Pop Off dubbing the album "dazzling," while Kevin Davis of NewReleaseToday raves, "If you’ve always enjoyed Selah’s contemporary style including vocal harmonizing and worshipful lyrics, you’ll love Step Into My Story which will have you singing loudly, ‘Hello, Grace!’”
Step Into My Story is Selah’s 16th album, and their first offering released on their newly-formed label, 3Cre8tive. The trio, nearing their 24th year as a band, was awarded Inspirational Album of the Year for Firm Foundation (2019) - their sixth career Inspirational Album of the Year win - as well as Inspirational Recorded Song of the Year for “Yet Not I, But Through Christ In Me” at last week’s 51st Annual GMA Dove Awards.
