Multi-award winning singer/songwriter, Matthew West has released the first of six songs recorded in front of a live audience at the YouTube Space in New York City to celebrate the release of his album Brand New last month. “Hope Returns” is the first song released and features a powerful message in this time of uncertainty across the globe.
The remaining songs recorded will release throughout the year on West’s YouTube channel. In addition he visited Vevo for an intimate performance of two additional songs and these will be released on his channel over the course of the year.
“Usually, when an artist releases an album there are only a few songs that really get to see the light of day,” explains West. “Those tend to be the songs selected to be radio singles. But when I make a record, I want the world to hear every song! I always believe that each song has its own season where it can impact culture.”
As large live events have been canceled this week, West has taken his unexpected time at home to share with his fans each day on Facebook and Instagram Live with a special devotional time. The Quarantine Quiet Time with Matthew West and Family takes place every weekday at 11:30 am CT throughout this month. He shares an encouraging word with special appearances from his family. Tune in and be encouraged.
