Worship leader and songwriter Cory Asbury has crafted a powerful new album that marks his first release as a Bethel Music artist and his second full-length release to date. For Cory, the album is an organic, soulful journey into the heart of the Father, and certainly his most personal and honest yet.
A collection of 10 songs, “Reckless Love” is a whole-hearted telling of an essential story in Scripture: a Father’s desire for connection with the ones he made, knows, and relentlessly loves. Known for his versatile and soulful sound, Cory’s vocals convey greater resolve and vulnerability than ever before throughout each of these acoustic-driven songs.
In its entirety, “Reckless Love” is about finding identity in God and being found by Him- fully and finally. The album’s title track depicts the parable of the lost sheep found in Matthew 18 with contagious passion, “Oh the overwhelming never-ending reckless love of God / Oh it chases me down, fights ‘till I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine / I don’t deserve it / I couldn’t earn it, still You give yourself away.
” Inspired by encounters with the Father’s love Asbury has experienced, together these songs testify of sonship, the liberty we have as children of God, and the pride that the Father has carried for humanity since the Garden. This album aims all of its attention toward the truth that the Father’s company is the best place be, and His voice is the most familiar one we know.
“Reckless Love” is like unearthing a map that leads back home, and will take worshippers into a place of rest, peace and identity in the smile of the Father over their life.
