Dustin Kensrue, worship pastor at Mars Hill Bellevue and frontman for Thrice, recently released his new record through Mars Hill Music called The Water & The Blood. The album includes a mix of original songs as well as a new arrangement of a timeless hymn. You can read his thoughts on why he made worship record on Resurgence. Below, we want to provide you with all the details surrounding the album.
Stream the whole album
We love to give away as much free stuff as we can, so you can stream the entire album for free through Mars Hill Music. We also have several ways to buy and download your own copy.
Where to buy
For the next three days, Best Buy is offering The Water & The Blood for $6.99 when you use the attached coupon. We’re hoping to sell the batch at Best Buy first as it helps the album and future ones get into more stores and in front of more non-Christians and unchurched people. So if you can pick it up at Best Buy, please do. It supports the mission.
The album is also available through iTunes or Mars Hill Music, although no coupons are currently available for those channels. For the people who dig high fidelity, a vinyl version can be purchased through Mars Hill Music.
Chord charts and how-to videos
Because this is a worship album, Pastor Dustin wants to equip musicians and leaders on how to play these songs.
First, the chord charts for each songs are available for download here. Second, Mars Hill Music is releasing a number of how-to videos like the one below, where Pastor Dustin teaches the chords for each part of the song. As each video is released, the album / resource page will be updated.
Pastor Dustin and crew have also recorded acoustic versions of the songs for those who want to play a more stripped-down version at your church! Stay tuned to the album page, Twitter, and Facebook as more are released.
We hope you enjoy the album and find these resources helpful!
