New Jars Of Clay album 'Jars Of Clay Presents The Shelter'

TOP SELLING American band Jars Of Clay will release their 11th studio album on 5th October. 'Jars Of Clay Presents The Shelter' is produced by the band and dwells on the idea of community, both physical and spiritual. Amongst the songwriter and vocal guests contributing to the project are Mac Powell (Third Day), Matt Maher, Brandon Heath, Laura Story and Phillip LaRue. Said guitarist Matt Odmark, "Jars of Clay, historically, has been this kind of compact creative environment; we're known for doing everything from the songwriting to the producing to the artwork. This was a push in a totally different direction. We brought people in on the songwriting side of things, and we knew in the beginning that we wanted as many voices as possible in the record. We wanted to make a record about community, and we wanted the recording process to be community. We wanted it to be an expression of what it was trying to articulate from a concept standpoint. It wasn't going to work any other way and it didn't make sense to us to write a record about community that was just us talking to one another." CR
