DUTCH WORSHIP BAND INSALVATION RELEASES NEW SINGLE ‘LET THE HEAVENS BE OPEN’ IN COLLABORATION WITH US WORSHIP LEADER LEELAND MOORING
Today InSalvation released ‘Let the Heavens Be Open’: the second single from their forthcoming album ‘Exodus’. The song is a prayer of longing; a desire for the Holy Spirit that is universally shared by Christians. It is the essence behind InSalvation’s song ‘Fill This House With Your Glory’, which led to the current ‘Presence Tour’ in the band’s native Netherlands. The release of ‘Let the Heavens Be Open’ is even more special for the band with guest vocalist Leeland Mooring.
“’Let the Heavens Be Open’ can be everyone’s prayer, whatever your background” says Jafeth Bekx of InSalvation. “We see an ever greater hunger for the Holy Spirit wherever we go, including in more traditional communities and churches. The first night of the ‘Presence’ tour in Gouda was very special. People lifted their voices and longings up as one. ‘Let the Heavens Be Open’ expresses that longing with fresh words.” The song was birthed out of a spontaneous moment of worship as Jafeth was sitting at his piano. It turned out to be a prayer that was shared by the whole band as they started writing for their new album ‘Exodus’, slated for release early 2020.
“I believe the prayer of this song is as Isaiah said”, says Jafeth, “That God would open the heavens and pour His Spirit out on us, letting His Strength become visible in our lives.”
Leeland Mooring, lead singer of the worship band Leeland, who lent his vocals on ‘Let the Heavens Be Open’ has been a friend of the band since a shared tour in 2012. “We kept in touch and with both of us becoming part of the Integrity family, this was an easy decision. Leeland is an inspiration to us as a band. We love his music and especially his expression of worship. It is pure, authentic, so very passionate for God. It permeates everything he does”, explains Jafeth.
