Andrew Peterson Releases All New Behold The Lamb Of God Album Today
Album Celebrates Behold The Lamb Of God Christmas Tour's 20th Anniversary
A completely re-recorded version of Peterson's acclaimed, bestselling Christmas album originally released in 2004, the new album reunites many of the original cast of musicians that recorded the first album, including Andy Gullahorn, Andrew Osenga, Jill Phillips, Gabe Scott and Ben Shive. Peterson and team re-crafted the original album's twelve songs, including fan favorites such as "Labor of Love," "Matthew's Begats" and "Deliver Us."
"That recording session was one of the best experiences in my life," says Peterson. "I walked into the room with about twenty old friends, and we recorded all of the songs in two days. To get all of the energy of the players together in one place, people I have years and years of history with, was a joy. I've never experienced anything like it."
The new album launches in time to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Peterson's Behold the Lamb of God annual Christmas tour that has become a cherished holiday tradition for churches and families who pack venues coast-to-coast each year. Known for its unique telling of the Christmas story through songs revealing the birth of Christ as it is foreshadowed and prophesied in the Old Testament and brought to bear in the New, the tour has also hosted a variety of special guests throughout the years, ranging from Allison Krauss to Jon Foreman, Steven Curtis Chapman, and many more.
