2014 looks like a busy year for one-time FFH man Michael: apart from this album, his book What Would Jesus Undo (a title to one of the more thoughtful tracks on the album as well) is also published in August. The album opens with extremely radio friendly, Springsteen-influenced "Turn Around". Matt Maher already had a hit with the song in 2012, staying in the US Christian top 10 for over 16 weeks; Michael penned it with Matt. Michael's songwriting shines throughout the album with tracks like "Our Hallelujah", "Rise" and the infectious "Heart On My Sleeve". In 2012 Michael was honoured as GMA's Songwriter Of The Year. Listening to this album, it's not hard to hear why.
