Michael W. Smith set the tone for great pop music throughout his career. Now he delivers Wonder, a pop-driven, emotionally charged project described as lyrically introspective, hopeful and vulnerable while musically anthemic and cinematic.
After his most recent and highly successful release, A New Hallelujah, Michael W Smith spent time on the road touring in the US and internationally. This allowed him time to once again let his heart view the world we live in, and using his gift of music, begin to express the feelings and thoughts that arose out of these trips.
These moments, and other life milestones, were the genesis for his latest CD, Wonder.
Ten new songs pack this new Michael W Smith project with subject matter that is sure to pierce your heart, backed by a relevant musical journey.
Smitty says, “These songs on this project are hopeful, anthemic and healing – musically and lyrically. I had a lot I wanted to say and the songs on this album allowed me to open up and do just that.
“Great songs are hard to find. I fell in love with Save Me From Myself the first time I heard it a year and a half ago. And now, a year and a half later, I still love the hook, the chorus and just the bigness of it. The message is true to my heart: ‘You save me, save me from myself. There is no-one else I’d lean on. Save me, you save me from myself. There is no-one else to set me free.’”
