Undivided Heart is a fiery new worship album by John Gabriel Arends. The album is produced by Jake Hamilton and features musicians from Jesus Culture and Bethel Music.
Undivided Heart is a worship album for those who are ready to go to the next level of abandoned love for Jesus. All throughout scripture, there is a call to whole-hearted pursuit of Jesus and to love God with our all—all our heart, all our mind, all our soul, all our strength. And that is the burning message inside the lyrics of each song on this album. And driving this pursuit is the awareness that heaven is wide open, that there is more of Holy Spirit experience, that there is more of Jesus' beauty to fall in love with, and that there is unimaginable reward for those who leave the world behind.
Stylistically, this album is fully alive, passionate, and modern. Thundering drums, heavy guitars, atmospheric synths, and soaring vocals will arrest your attention and pull your heart toward the heavens.
This is an honest recording. In order to preserve the honesty of our worship, we chose a "live" recording style. The band and I recorded all together, at the same time, in just one or two takes and without excessive editing. Our hearts in recording this album wasn't to be flawless, but rather to be passionate for Jesus. We wanted to record songs that are singable by real people and accessible to local churches. It is our prayer that this honest recording will encourage you to give your whole heart to Jesus and that, together, we will all learn what it truly means to worship in Spirit and in truth.
