Worship leader Ben Cantelon is calling on believers to open their eyes and see the world differently. Throughout his second full-length album, Everything In Color, Cantelon unpacks the paints and unleashes the creativity, offering eleven songs designed to leave listeners in awe of God’s beauty, grace and love.
Releasing globally through Kingsway on May 8th, Everything In Color is an album designed to bring worshipers back to the here and now, to re-examine the present in the light of God’s eternal goodness and love. And as metaphors go, the idea of living life in full color offers the Canadian-born and London-based songwriter plenty of material.
“I think these are exciting times for sung worship,” says Cantelon. “When life is tough, it is tempting to reduce things to black and white… but worship has a role to play in introducing the color. Worship reminds us that God is far bigger than any of us, far brighter than any of our gloom and far more real than any of our denial.”
Everything In Color, which features co-writes with Tim Hughes and Matt Redman, includes a return of two of Cantelon’s best-loved songs, “Love Came Down” and “Savior Of The World.” Both are given a fresh treatment, fitting in perfectly with the album’s overarching theme of exploration and revelation.
In coordination with the album, Cantelon created a series of short devotional articles based around the theme “Everything In Color.” Covering topics that range from the need for a God-directed perspective to the current state of the worship movement, the articles are well-rooted in both scripture and "real life” and ideal for both worship leaders and worshipers, alike. The articles are being released weekly across social media platforms for use as part of personal devotions or small group studies. The first article, “Not Everyone Sees In Color,” is available now at http://kingswayworship.com.
