The fifth new full-length recording from Jesus Culture, Come Away, will be released on Kingsway Nov. 23, 2010 as a special CD/DVD Digipak combo. Recorded live at the Jesus Culture Encounter Conference in Redding, CA earlier this year in front of a full house of passionate youth and young adults, this album is anticipated to be one of the most highly sought-after new youth worship releases of the year. Selling hundreds of thousands of albums and CD/DVD combinations to primarily an international audience through online outlets and at events, Kingsway first brought catalogue Jesus Culture Music to physical retail earlier this year throughout the USA into both Christian and general market stores with distribution by EMI CMG. Come Away will be the first new Jesus Culture recording to go simultaneously to both physical and digital retailers.
Featuring the songs and vocal talents of Jesus Culture worship leaders Kim Walker-Smith, Chris Quilala and the full Jesus Culture band, the Come Away CD and DVD both contain 10 tracks. The DVD, which was recorded in High Definition with 5.1 audio, also features additional content and extended versions of select songs. The album was mixed by Sam Gibson (Delirious?, Pearl Jam, Crowded House) with audio production by Jeremy Edwards (The Myriad) and video direction by Nathan Grubbs.
Known as one of the most influential youth movements around the world, Jesus Culture has ignited a generation with energetic, passionate and authentic worship music. “Our prayer is that this album will be more than just another release from the Jesus Culture Band, but it will release a sound that will capture the hearts of a generation who are looking for something more,” said Banning Liebscher, Jesus Culture director.
The full Come Away CD/DVD track listing follows:
01. Come Away
03. You Are My Passion
04. I Want To Know You
05. My Soul Longs For You

Tracing its music heritage to 1969, Kingsway today is known as a leader in Worship Music. As the creator of Thank You Music, and later in partnership with EMI, its catalogue includes songs such as “Here I Am to Worship,” “In Christ Alone,” “Everlasting God” and “Blessed Be Your Name” to name a few.
Kingsway’s songs are sung in more than 300,000 churches worldwide accounting for over 30% of CCLI’s (Church Copyright Licensing International) bestseller list. With writers and artists like Tim Hughes, Matt Redman, Delirious?, Graham Kendrick and Stuart Townend, Kingsway is dedicated to feeding the Church with songs that will change the world. As the music arm of David C Cook, a non-profit organization located in Colorado Springs, CO, a significant portion of the profits that Kingsway and David C Cook generate are used to provide discipleship and music materials free of charge to church leaders in developing parts of the world who wouldn’t be able to get them any other way.
