Phil Wickham To Release ‘Living Hope’ In August

Phil Wickham is set to release his first new album in two years on Aug. 3, Living Hope, on Fair Trade Services. The album found Wickham working with 19 songwriters and six producers during a year-long journey to finish it. The project includes the soulful track for immediate download, “Song in My Soul” featuring Hollyn.

Wickham’s current single, “Living Hope” debuted at No. 24 on the Billboard Christian Airplay chart and was co-written with Bethel Music’s Brian Johnson. “Living Hope” and other tracks from the record have been featured in key streaming playlists such as Amazon Music’s Fresh Christian and Spotify’s New Music Friday, Top Christian and WorshipNow playlists. The track “Till I Found You” is also set to impact Hot AC next month. Since its release to digital outlets two months ago, the song has garnered over four million streams across all platforms. Both singles also spent time on the Spotify US Viral 50 chart.

“So many songs on the record were born out of wanting to write the language and the prayers that go along with what God is doing in the community already,” said Wickham. “The goal wasn’t to write songs that were my expression necessarily of what is God doing in my life or what is my vision or what am I supposed to say through these songs. It’s more for the church.”

The California native will deliver a Living Hope album release show in Los Angeles on Aug. 3, followed by a performance at CMB’s Momentum conference this September.
