NASHVILLE, Tenn. (U.S.) / BRIGHTON (U.K.) (MARCH 11, 2020)  - Integrity Music's Martin Smith releases a special four-song EP,  Exalt , available now.  Exalt  features Smith's most popular worship songs from  Iron Lung  and  Love Song For A City (Live)  reimagined and recut in an intimate atmosphere with congregational vocals, including a guest appearance from acclaimed worship artist, Steffany Gretzinger, on the song, “Come Holy Spirit.”
 
“There are many ways for us to address Jesus,” says Smith, “But this one is unique – Exalt . When we exalt Him...we leave nothing on the table. This EP is full of simple worship songs that are vulnerable and heartfelt, all pointing to Jesus. The lyrics are all part of my journey over the last 2 year."
In concert with the EP’s release, Smith will be featured on the Compassion LIVE Roadshow 2020 tour with Bethel Music, Matt Maher, Unspoken, Apollo LTD, Peadbod, and his daughter, Elle Limebear. 
“I’m so honored to be on the Compassion Roadshow Tour this year. What a privilege to be touring in America again. I can’t wait to meet and hang out with all the other artists and to meet some new people.”
 
Exalt  follows the 2019 studio release,  Iron Lung, which was Smith's most personal album ever recorded. Celebrating life, love and faith,  Iron Lung  was birthed out of early recalled memories from Smith where he was fighting bronchial pneumonia. He was placed in an oxygen tent, seriously struggling for breath to keep him alive while his parents prayed to “let him make a noise.”  Exalt , continues this narrative and answer to pray, as it rings out a declarative and humble shout of reverence for God, how we need him, and what he’s done for us.
 
Smith says, “Worship always lifts your head to who is God. There is no one else, no one compares to Jesus, it’s always only him. The bottom-line message I want to communicate through my music is hope, passion, healing. That God is not dead but alive.”

Exalt  Track Listing: 
1. Jesus Only You
2. Come Holy Spirit (feat. Steffany Gretzinger)
3. I Will Sing
4. Exalt
