Look what Sparrow Records sent me! A sneak preview of Robbie Seay’s new album, “Miracle”, not due out until March 23rd. You can listen with the widget below. I love it and have had it playing on my computer while I work. It’s beautiful and deep and soothing.
Read Robbie’s thoughts on his new music:
In some ways, this record reflects the past year for us – representing a broader journey and reality,” Robbie says. “From the deepest depths of sorrow and angst to the greatest moments of celebration in scripture, the band strikes up and it’s beautiful to be part of that. Each song seems to echo what God is doing among us, that this is not a me-centered life we’re living… we are not alone.”
“The title track and first single of the project, “Miracle” came in the wake of devastating news. I remember getting a phone call from one of my closest friends. ‘Kristy has cancer. It doesn’t look good, but we’re believing for a Miracle.’ I wrote the lyrics the next day. I prayed and believed with him. Kristy, wife and mother of three young boys would die two months later.”
“The song is not a miracle sweat cloth,” Robbie continues, “or a televangelist coming to a town near you. It’s the crying out when you’re in the depths of life. Believing. And as we all know, sometimes it doesn’t end like we so fervently believed. The song is not a promise of a miracle. It is, however, the declaration that we all will find ourselves in great need of one at some point in our lives – and in those moments, we choose to believe even when we can’t see our hands in front of our face.”
