7 May 2021 - Brentwood, TN - Integrity Music is excited to share that "Jesus," the new single from worship artist and songwriter Phil Thompson, releases today. Partnered with a music video, "Jesus" will be featured on Thompson's sophomore album, Lion of Judah, slated to release this summer. Be sure to not miss Thompson live on Facebook today at 12pm ET/11am CT as he shares about his new song as well as his upcoming album. 
 
The message of "Jesus," which was written by Thompson immediately after he penned the title track to his new LP, "Is too simple to even try to unpack. There is power in the name of Jesus. This name is above every other name. Undefeated and uncontested."
 
He explains further, "After I finished writing 'Lion of Judah,' I just sat at my piano and sang it straight through from top to bottom three times. With tears in my eyes, I just worshipped and the worship got deeper and deeper. 'Jesus' came within a span of 15 minutes. It was birthed out of the residue of worship that 'Lion of Judah' created and it felt like a gift had been given to me because it came so effortlessly. That’s why it's written in the same key and almost the exact same tempo. In my mind, these songs are sisters. There is something very solemn and peaceful about this song. It felt like a hymn to me." 
 
ABOUT PHIL THOMPSON: As he puts it, “The mandate is clear. I feel the Lord’s call on my life to lead people into His presence- to lead them to worship.”
 
Standing before diverse bodies of around the world, Phil Thompson’s sincerity possesses the uncanny ability to reach people just where they are while leading them to the throne of grace.
 
Though Thompson has been singing since childhood, it wasn’t until he was 30 years old that he discovered his gifting in writing music. Not only did he establish himself as the writer behind Ashmont Hill's hits, but he's also inked songs for a multitude of artists, most notably JJ Hairston's “Love Lifted Me.”
 
In 2017 Thompson stepped forward from behind the pen and committed to one goal - worship. The world immediately took notice of his authentic heart as the live session video for “My Worship” garnered over one million views within just two months. Just over a year later it has more than twelve million views. The full project was released spring 2018 and reached No. 1 on Billboard charts, garnering both GMA Dove Award and Stellar Award nominations. Within the year, Phil has crisscrossed the globe worshipping throughout Ghana, Nigeria, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Canada, and the Caribbean Islands. As he preps his sophomore season of songs and once again transcends world borders, Phil Thompson desires nothing more than to remind believers far and wide that God’s grace is boundless, and His Love is ever-present.
