“O the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God. Oh, it chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine. I couldn’t earn it, I don’t deserve, still, you give Yourself away. O the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God.”
Source: MultiTracks.com – “Cory Asbury’s new solo album “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. 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. Set to release on January 26, “Reckless Love” is now available for pre-order on iTunes, with three songs available for instant download: “Water and Dust”, “Endless Alleluia”, and the album’s title track, “Reckless Love”, which was previously released as a single and is currently the number one song here on MultiTracks.com. We encourage you to pre-order your copy of Reckless Love today and pick up the Original Master MultiTracks and instrument parts in RehearsalMix, now available.”
Some words from Cory about this project:
“I had to become a father to learn how to be a son — In many ways, the Reckless Love single cover was the introduction to my story. The beginning. The genesis. An innocent little boy with goofy, spiky hair and not a care in the world. Just a little kid. A son. No worries. No wounds. Carefree and confident in the perfect little world my parents provided for me. Then the full-length album cover is my life coming full circle. On the journey from boyhood to manhood, there were a million cracks in the road. But somehow the grace of God swooped in with wings otherworldly and carried me safely over each one. And finally, those mighty wings set me down in a broad place. Now I’m a father to my own little boy. And somehow, in so becoming, I’m a little child again. Fully free and fully alive in my Father’s eyes. The brokenness didn’t break me. No, we rewrote the story in crimson ink. And I dance again like a little boy. Nothing between us. Innocent and free just like You always wanted. And I realize I’ve always been the dream of Your heart. A son.”
