Nashville, TN (April 12, 2010) – Award-winning songwriter, recording artist Matt Redman has written 17 Top 500 CCLI (Christian Copyright Licensing International) songs that are being sung by millions in church services every week around the world. A dozen of these songs are featured on Redman’s 14-song Ultimate Collection releasing April 20, 2010 from Kingsway with EMI CMG Distribution.

Named the 2009 “Christian Songwriter of the Year” ASCAP Award winner, called “one of the most prolific songwriters in the history of the church” by Chris Tomlin, and praised as “one of the most gifted contemporary worship songwriters” by Christianity Today, the songs of Matt Redman for this collection were selected with great care.

“For a singer, songwriter and worship leader like Matt Redman, choosing the ‘Ultimate Collection’ wasn’t easy,” says Steve Nicolle, Director of Kingsway in North America. “With a catalogue of songs that has brought in four Dove Awards and birthed ten solo full-length albums, there is plenty to choose from. The Ultimate Collection draws together elements that are intimate and inspiring, songs that that connect with Christians on the deepest levels and have helped change the sound of worship for an entire generation.”

From “Blessed Be Your Name” to “The Heart Of Worship” to “Better Is One Day,” the full Ultimate Collection track listing follows:

You Never Let Go
Blessed Be Your Name
Once Again
Nothing But The Blood
Dancing Generation
The Heart Of Worship
Let Everything That Has Breath
Lord Let Your Glory Fall
I Will Offer Up My Life
Better Is One Day
The Father’s Song
Yes And Amen

Leading a generation of worshipers, Redman’s songs have been recorded by artists such as Michael W. Smith, Rebecca St. James, Tree 63, Kutless and Passion, among others. Mark Hall of Casting Crowns says, “Matt Redman has always been one of my favorites because he writes amazing worship songs for the church.”
