NASHVILLE, TENN. (NOVEMBER 01, 2019) Award-winning trio Selah releases their new album, Firm Foundation, today. The 11-song project features Selah’s signatures: a solid message of biblical truth and the beloved voices of Todd Smith, Amy Perry and Allan Hall. After more than two decades, Selah is experiencing a rebirth of who they are with a youthfulness, excitement and passion as they release their first project with Integrity Music.
“While we still sound the same, and while our hearts are still the same—we still desire to sing truth,” says Amy Perry of Selah. “There’s a little piece of each of us in this project, and I think it turned out beautifully.”
“I’m not afraid to try something new,” Allan Hall continues about the album. “I’m not afraid to fail. It’s not a failure if the songs minister to people.”
While Selah’s collections have never been restricted by genre, the tracks on Firm Foundation are as diverse as the musical upbringings and leanings as the artists behind them. Each is well-represented on the album. “My Soul Be Satisfied” and “Always Gonna Be” give a nod to Allan’s folk roots in East Tennessee. “Firm Foundation” features a back-up gospel choir with a nod to Todd’s upbringing. “Yet Not I, But Through Christ in Me” sounds like a new, old hymn—something the church will be singing for a long time, which showcases Amy’s background of church worship
While stylistically Selah may have veered into new territory for this album, something they’re not veering from is truth—the truth of scripture and the truth of Jesus. This core message is summed up in the chorus of the title track, a powerful anthem that declares: I will not be moved for my feet are planted in you / A firm foundation / My solid rock / You can’t be shaken / You won’t be stopped.
“We are in a culture—kind of like in the days of Noah—where we’re living our own truth, doing what’s right in our own eyes and yet, there’s such a hunger from people to know that there is absolute truth,” shares Selah’s Todd Smith. “There is this firm foundation in scripture. There’s this firm foundation in who Jesus is.”
Everyone will have an opportunity to hear Selah as they are touring this fall and into the Christmas season. Check out their upcoming tour dates here.
