Phillips, Craig and Dean are preparing for their tenth studio project, Let the Worshippers Arise. This September 28th release marks the first project for the group since signing with INO Records.
“I’m excited to work with them again,” states president of INO Records Jeff Moseley. “I was with them on their first record, and it has come full circle to be working with them now. I enjoy working with these guys because they are real and their music reflects this.”
Let the Worshippers Arise features a combination of original as well as up and coming songs, including four songs co-written by the trio. The CD also showcases a new medley that mirrors the 1994 Song of the Year, “In Christ Alone,” which was originally penned by member Shawn Craig. The classic sound of Phillips, Craig and Dean is represented on this project with a decidedly more up-tempo approach. Brought on board once again for his third Phillips, Craig and Dean project is producer Nathan Nockels (“Let My Words Be Few” and “Let Your Glory Fall”).
After 17 number one radio singles on the AC and Inspirational charts and almost 2 million units sold since their formation in 1991, Phillips, Craig and Dean remain dedicated to providing music for all church genres facilitating the church into times of worship. They also remain in their full-time positions as pastors just as they did fourteen years ago, and this project is a perfect extension of their passion to worship.
“We felt like it was the right thing to do a trilogy,” says Shawn Craig. “This is our third project with more of a vertical message, performing songs that are of the praise/worship genre. Speaking for myself, I just can’t get enough of it. It’s part of who we are at our core. Each of us began as worship leaders in our churches so it’s a very natural thing for us to continue.”
Phillips, Craig and Dean will head out on a promotional tour in September to Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, and Seattle in addition to several tour dates in the fall. For more information please visit http://www.inorecords.com.
