With an overall theme of intimacy with the Living God being reflected in Glorious, the title track, co-written with Brenton Brown, points people beyond the cross, pushing them to look further inside the mystery of the gospel.
“God is a living Savior; He is Glorious. Sometimes we lose this… the adventure of being led by a living, active God and having an expectant heart,” reflects Baloche. “My pastor says that when we sing ‘Glorious,’ it feels like the answer to the longing in ‘Open the Eyes of My Heart’.” (“Open the Eyes of My Heart” is Baloche’s most widely sung and well-known song, currently at No. 6 on the CCLI chart.)
Look inside the mystery
See the empty cross
See the risen Savior
Victorious and strong
…Glorious my eyes have seen the glory of the Lord
Produced by Baloche and band member Ben Gowell, who co-wrote “You Have Saved Us” on the album, Glorious also features additional production by Michael Rossback and Jason Ingram (Bebo Norman, Rush Of Fools, Tenth Avenue North, Jim Brickman). Baloche further co-wrote the first radio single, “Just To Be With You,” with Ingram. The single is already garnering acclaim from radio programmers across the country.
“With so much uncertainty all around us, it can be so easy to lose sight of what we really need – just to be with Him,” says Joe Buchanan, Network Music Director, New Life Media. “I can’t wait to encourage our listeners with this great song! Thanks, Paul, for another well written song with an incredible and timely message!”
Baloche shares the songwriting responsibilities with several other writers on this album, including his wife Rita. Together, they co-wrote the song “Wonderful God,” and Rita wrote the song “Shaken.” Glorious also features a duet with Meredith Andrews on “How Great is The Love,” written by Baloche and Andrews. Notably, this year’s Dove Award winning song, “A New Hallelujah,” was co-written with Michael W. Smith. Known in Christian music circles for cultivating a sense of community among writers, Baloche is also a writer/artist for CompassionArt, a charity dedicated to seeing works of art generate income for the relief of suffering around the planet.
