Jeremy Camp steps out with We Cry Out, the second chapter that follows the chart topping, award winning, Grammy-nominated first worship-themed set in 2004. Camp’s purposeful effort aims to stir the Spirit of Divine worship for the time of uncertain times in which we live.
Similar to what he accomplished with Carried Me, Jeremy has co-written favourite classic tunes – to fit with his contemporary rock styles of worship and vision – with the likes of Matt Maher, Reuben Morgan, Jon Egan, and Brenton Brown, etc. and the result has turned out a rocking success!
We Cry Out kicks-off with Tim Hughes’ “Jesus Saves” built on a background of acoustic guitars and progressive beats to set the tempo for things to come, followed by “Not Ashamed” (Jon Egan). Blending in nicely is the anthemic “The Way”, which is a call for God’s glory to shine forth. I believe the radio versions of “We Will Cry Out to You,” “You Are The Lord (Matt Maher),” and the ever-popular “Everlasting God” will set listeners grooving all the way to the peak!
As he opines “That’s where I am today—seeking the face of God.” “I feel like I’ve had a growth spurt the past two years in my walk with the Lord, and I think We Cry Out reflects that deepening. There’s a purity behind this record that I can’t even describe.”
With the worship atmosphere now in full saturation comes an emotive rendition of Desperation Band’s “Overcome” written by Jon Egan, followed by the uplifting performance of Matt Redman’s ballad “You Never Let Go” in the mix.
“Unrestrained” reflects an honest prayer from a yearning believer earmarking a winding up of things. This precedes “King Jesus” which filters through like a pop/worship classic. And finally the soulful-pop “Magnify”, softly exuding in worship, behind a piano-laced refrain.
We Cry Out surely tick all the boxes in the right spots, as it’d give a good worship experience for every lover of Christian music!
