Breakout Contemporary Christian/Country band We The Kingdom (Ed Cash, Scott Cash, Franni Rae Cash, Martin Cash and Andrew Bergthold) released their debut album Holy Water, today Friday, August 7. The album, which was produced by We The Kingdom and recorded at their studio, features 12 tracks including their smash hit “Holy Water” and a collaboration with Christian music heavyweights, Bethel Music. The album is currently sitting at no. 8 on the All Genre US iTunes Sales Chart, and the band celebrated the release of Holy Water via a global live stream event on Thursday, August 6.
“We are so excited to share this album with everyone. The collection of songs on this album feels like such a great example of how songwriting is able to tell the stories of our lives. This album delves into real life and what it means to struggle, but also to celebrate,” We The Kingdom said. “We hope that when people listen to the record they will be able to find themselves in each song and make their own personal connections to their lives.”
Each track on the album was co-written by We The Kingdom, allowing the band to bring together decades worth of ideas, inspirations and influences into one body of work. The band explores a wide range of themes throughout, from loneliness and being cornered into someone else’s expectations in song’s like “Cages” and “SOS” to hopefulness and positivity in “Waking Up.” The group channels a resilient and tenacious spirit in the electric track, “Don’t Tread On Me.” The band’s current radio single “God So Loved” is the no. 1 song on Spotify’s official Top Christian playlist with over 10M global streams to date, and is already Top 15 on the Christian Airplay chart. The album also features the band’s breakout hit and debut radio single, “Holy Water” which spent 7 consecutive weeks at no. 1 on the Billboard Christian AC chart and can be heard spinning on prominent official Spotify playlists including Top Christian, New & Bold, Country Hits, Christian Hits, and Songs of Glory. Their latest Story Brooke Sessions performance of “Holy Water” enjoyed a premiere with Cowboys & Indians on Wednesday, August 5.
