Following his success with Saints and Sinners and All The People Said Amen, Matt Maher returns with his newest studio album, Echoes. Focusing on God's calling, Matt draws on stories of the Old Testament, in which individuals must place their faith in the Lord wholeheartedly. He notes that many of life's greatest challenges have remained the same. We fight for truth, love, control. But in the ever-changing days of technology, we find a lack of being; a lack of meditation. Many seek to be constantly active as a way of finding meaning in their lives. But it is through trust in God that we find our purpose; it is through praise and worship. "God wants you to win," Matt says. "God is your defender."

Beauty from Tragedy

The album itself was given new meaning after the loss of Matt's father. Having already written the songs, Matt began to form the tone and atmosphere around human triumph in the wake of suffering. Yet, the album does not feel sorrowful. Rather, it is a declaration of love for God's grace in our lives and a prayer for strength when we seem to crumble.

Songs of Trust in Trying Times

  • "Clean Heart" highlights Matt Maher's ability to create powerful dynamic range, all in the name of spiritual cleansing.
  • "Faithfulness," featuring Steffany Gretzinger, begins with a soft and open piano melody. It recalls overcoming life's challenges through constant and unwavering faith.
  • "Picket Sign," used as the inspiration for the album's cover, thanks Christ for His love and sacrifice during times of crisis.

This deluxe edition includes tracks, "Echoes One" and "Echoes Two", with an alternate version of "Your Love Defends Me" accompanied by solo piano.

A Stunning Contemporary Composition

As with his albums in the past, Matt incorporates a wide range of instruments, vocal harmonies and tempos. The album is a contemporary collection of rock, alternative, blues, folk and everything in between. Each track meshes seamlessly with the next, adding a beautiful totality to the composition. These songs are perfect for families and worship leaders searching for new music that will inspire parishioners and create a deeper sense of community.
