|Blind Boys Collaborate with Jars of Clay
15 March 2005
The Blind Boys of Alabama collaborated with Jars of Clay's on their upcoming album, Redemption Songs. The Blind Boys contributed their typical soulful vocal style on the popular traditional hymn, "Nothing but the Blood."
Redemption Songs, set to release March 22, 2005, is a collection of reinvented ancient hymns and spiritual songs. As part of a church community that believed passionately the blessing of understanding the story of redemption through early church songs and ancient hymns, Jars of Clay found themselves a part of a growing renaissance, one that inspired them to write new songs using the rich hymn texts as the foundation. This renaissance was the beginning of Redemption Songs, a blend of familiar hymns, spirituals and ancient texts.
Redemption Songs is a timeless musical testimony of the Gospel story reaching throughout history to give us roots and wings and reminding a new generation that they are a part of the ongoing Redemptive story.
