Local Sound is set to release their second EP, Sunday School, with Integrity Music on July 19th. True to the title, Sunday School takes five of the group’s favorite worship songs from their childhoods recorded with Local Sound’s pop worship spin.
Featuring some of the trio’s treasured worship songs like Darlene Zschech’s “Shout To The Lord” and Paul Baloche’s “Open The Eyes Of My Heart”, the EP’s first single to release will be “I Could Sing Of Your Love Forever,” available on this week on July 5.
“I grew up listening to these songs,” shares Local Sound’s Emily Wyant. “They are truly the soundtrack of my childhood. Though hundreds of new and wonderful worship songs have been released since then, these songs remind me of the childlike faith I am meant to live from. A faith that is purely based on worship and adoration of God without asking for anything in return. I am honored to be a part of a project that recognizes the beauty and importance of these songs.”
Since the songs featured on Sunday School on the EP are globally-known and have been sung in churches around the globe for decades, Local Sound has recorded the songs in both Spanish and Portuguese along with English. The group has been personally impacted by these cultures and wants to honor them with these translations as resources for their local church. The Spanish and Portuguese versions will release in August.
