Brian & Jenn Johnson of Bethel Music Release New Album
It’s been over 10 years since Brian and Jenn Johnson from Bethel Music in Redding, CA released their last solo album, but that changes Friday, January 27 with the release of "After All These Years," a new solo album by the married couple. The album features original music from the Johnsons who are joined by an 80 member orchestra on all ten tracks.
“After All These Years” is meant to inspire worshipers to go forward with God while not forgetting the history and what he’s done in times past. Themes include legacy and releasing the next generation to go further in God and build on what’s been given to us. The album is designed to stir great hope for worshipers, reminding us to cherish our own history with God and empowering us to build a legacy that will last.
“Honesty is a big deal in this album for us,” said Brian Johnson. "The nature of this album is the devotional aspect, the secret place and the vulnerability of that," continued Johnson. “I would hope that the faithfulness of God would resound and be evident on the songs."
Jenn Johnson said, “After All These Years was this theme that we had that talked about the beginning of our journey, current part of our journey and most importantly from now throughout eternity, that it all matters.”
Jenn emphasized the importance of faithfulness to the call of God to family, community and the kingdom of God in the earth. “After all these years, we still have the same commitment to each other, to do this well together, to raise family and community and that is a prophetic message to people.”
Jenn Johnson hopes that this message of Bethel and what God has done there would inspire others to go after God, family and community.
"For us to be able to carry that DNA, it’s just filled with hope and it gives people this picture to say, "hey I can have that too." Community and family and carrying his name, that's kingdom and that's what is for every believer."
The album consists of 10 tracks and is available January 27 on iTunes and where music is sold.
