Cornerstone, the new Hillsong LIVE album, hits stores everywhere July 3 but you can pre-order the deluxe edition starting today for only $14.99 on iTunes. The digital deluxe edition features a talk from Hillsong Church pastor Brian Houston as well as studio versions of “Cornerstone,” “Hope of the World,” and “Running.”
The inspiration behind the title track “Cornerstone” was birthed out of an international tragedy last summer in Norway when more than 70 innocent victims, many children, were killed. Hillsong’s worship leader Reuben Morgan shares his response to this frightening shooting as he was visiting the Scandinavian Peninsula. “When you write songs that people sing as part of their worship to God there is a bit of your soul that shares the aches of those around you. When there is tragedy, the song of lament wakes up with you.”
This album, like all of Hillsong’s projects, is more than a group of songs. It is a profound message that builds faith, stirs the soul and asks and answers the big questions. “We only just have the time to forget the face of the gunman when another chorus of sirens wail,” explains Morgan. “We have barely cleaned up after the flood when an earthquake strikes. When the earth shakes, we look to our feet and wonder what it is that we are standing on.”
Showcasing twelve brand new songs written by Reuben Morgan, Ben Fielding, Hillsong UNITED, and others, Cornerstone offers fresh, new songs to congregations worldwide with a simple desire to place emphasis on Jesus and a prayer that people everywhere will be encouraged to find hope in Christ, the Cornerstone.
