Bethel Music,the worship music and community of songwriters emerging from Bethel Church in Redding, CA, will release its second, all instrumental, full-length album, Without Words: Synesthesia, July 31, 2015 through Provident Music Distribution. Well-known Bethel Music songs, such as “It is Well,” “You Make Me Brave,” “Over My Head,” “This is Amazing Grace” and more, have been reconstructed with lush instrumentation set against orchestral sonic landscapes. The recording continues what Bethel Music began in 2013 with the release of its first instrumental album, Without Words, which received wide critical acclaim.

NewReleaseTuesday.com calls Without Words “an epic soundtrack of the life of faith and the pursuit of Christ.” HollywoodJesus.com notes that “with unique instruments filling in for the vocals…you can almost concentrate and ‘feel’ the music even more.” AllAboutWorship.com suggests that the “fantastic arrangements” be used “for pre-service music, transitional tunes and ministry music” and lauds “the musicality and creativity of Bethel Music.”

For Without Words: Synesthesia, Bethel Music presents a fresh wave of instrumental music. While the project is at times reminiscent of the more organic Without Words, this sophomore project takes a distinctly new direction, incorporating electronic elements and ethereal vocal layering.

“The album’s tracks are threaded together with colorful interludes, escorting listeners seamlessly through an unbroken musical experience, one of communion, healing and rejuvenation,” says Brian Johnson, who, along with his wife Jenn, are the senior worship pastors at Bethel Church and oversee the Bethel School of Worship.

Crafted in the spirit of Colossians 3:17, the full Without Words: Synesthesia track listing (including short musical interludes that are italicized) follows:
