Caroline Cobb Releases A King & His Kindness LP Oct. 1
Songs Meant To Help People Rehearse, Remember God's Story; Worship Leader Premieres "Find Rest (Matthew 11)"
Produced by Isaac Wardell (Josh Garrels, Sandra McCracken) and featuring Tyler Chester (Madi Cunningham, Switchfoot), gospel trio Resound (Lauren Daigle), Taylor Leonhardt (Mission House) and Sean Carter (People & Songs), A King & His Kindness is the fourth in an anthology of albums that builds on Cobb's acclaimed Story-telling projects A Seed, A Sunrise (2020), A Home & a Hunger (2017) and the Blood + the Breath (2013). Each album traces a biblical theme from creation to Christ's return, with every song parachuting into a different scene from scripture.
"My last three albums were more sweeping and panoramic, taking a wide-angle view of the biblical Story, tracing a theme all the way from Genesis to Revelation. Over the past few years, I've been eager to zoom in, to get up-close to the person that the whole Story hinges on: Jesus," shares Cobb. "He had a real life and lived with real people, teaching about his kingdom, showing compassion, turning over tables. He is not a concept or an idea, but a person whose life demands a response.
"With all that's going on in the world and in the Church right now, my prayer is that these songs will have a re-centering effect, bringing us home to Him," continues Cobb.
Songs like "Your Heart Was Set" and "Who Is This Jesus" are intimate portraits of Jesus, exploring both his real, human suffering and his divinity, prompting listeners to wonder, "Who is this and how can this be?" Songs like "Jesus, Full of Compassion" and "Find Rest (Matthew 11)," the latter premiered by Worship Leader, place the listener inside the gospel stories, warmly inviting listeners into a relationship with a loving and personal God. In contrast, "Turn the Tables," "Come After Me," and "Let It Be So with Your Church" challenge consumerism and status quo Christianity, urging listeners to take seriously Jesus' call to pick up their cross and live as "true followers."
