Jars Of Clay release 'Redemption Songs' hymns album.

BEST SELLING pop rock team Jars Of Clay have released their new album 'Redemption Songs', which is described as "an ambitious turn to reintroduce some ancient hymns to a new audience." The group have added new melodies to some of the hymns. Said the band's guitarist Matt Odmark, "With us reflecting on what's been going on with worship music in the past few years and figuring out what our contribution would be to that, we kept coming back to hymns. It's music that has inspired us and it's kind of what we wanted to share with our fans and listeners." Guests on the project include Sarah Kelly, who helps out on "I'll Fly Away", and the Blind Boys Of Alabama on "Nothin' But The Blood". CR
