Brian & Jenn Johnson have been songwriting, leading worship, and overseeing Bethel Church's Worship Department for more than 15 years. After All These
Years captures their story in this highly-anticipated studio album released by Bethel Music. In addition to writing and recording songs for Bethel Music's
compilations, their previous solo releases include live-worship albums Undone (2001) and We Believe (2006).
After All These Years presents new music penned by Brian and Jenn, along with never-before-heard worship songs that have been years in the making. From its
start, the album's title track sweeps listeners across a moving orchestral landscape paired with honest lyrics sung by Brian, "It amazes me after all
You've done, it amazes me, You're still running after us…". This theme marks the project as a whole: a reflective look back on God's faithfulness,
and a hopeful looking ahead.
Stylistically, the album takes a distinct turn from anything Bethel Music has previously recorded; lush arrangements recorded by a symphony orchestra are
the hallmark of each track. In lyric and instrumentation, the project evokes a feeling of timelessness and unfettered hope. Each song reflects the seasoned
journey of its writers, while capturing the wonder, conviction, and tenderness of heart that has marked this last season of life or the Johnson's.
Underlying each track is the message that the unseen history we build with God, becomes the greatest treasure that sustains our lives. Worshippers will be
compelled to remember their own history with God, while being inspired to look forward with devotion towards what is on the horizon in this life with Him.
