25 June 2021 - Brentwood, TN - Today, worship artist and songwriter Phil Thompson drops his latest single, "Only Risen King," with Integrity Music. Accompanied with a live performance video, "Only Risen King" will be featured on Thompson's sophomore album, Lion of Judah, slated to release July 23 and is now available for pre-order. This latest release is the third to drop leading up to the album, following "Jesus" and "Constant Mercies." 
 
Thompson, who wrote the song with Nathaniel Smith, shares, "There’s a boldness that comes with knowing who you are. There’s a boldness that comes from knowing your identity in HIM. My favorite type of boldness is when you’re standing on His word. That type of boldness and confidence is unbreakable when you understand the nature of the Father, and how lying is not in His makeup, that true rest comes from trusting God. This song is braggadocios in a hip-hop way. But we obviously aren’t boasting about ourselves, we’re boasting about our Father. The point of this song is to be in your face. Sorry but not sorry!" 
 
"I won’t be ashamed to declare the praises Of my God, the risen King
The One who gave His life for me 
Name above all names Who came to break the chains
The God who sets the captives free, His love will always fight for me
We are not ashamed to declare Your glory and Your majesty
You’re the only risen King
When I call Your name all the earth will tremble and the darkness must flee
You’re the only risen King."
- lyrics from "Only Risen King"




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.
