LOS ANGELES (February 4, 2022)  GRAMMY® Award-winning songwriter, producer and critically-acclaimed artist Brooke Ligertwood drops the second single “Nineveh” from her forthcoming live solo album “SEVEN” which is now available for preorder. Out today on all digital platforms with an accompanying live performance video, “Nineveh” is written by Ligertwood along with Pastor Steven Furtick and is a narrative journey through the Biblical book of Jonah that concludes with a personal, individual challenge. The piano-driven anthem soars into “God have mercy” refrains that were written into the song from its genesis specifically for a choir to sing - a vision that comes to life through a powerful live ensemble of voices in both the audio and video recordings. 

“When Pastor Steven Furtick messaged me in the spring of 2021 and said he and I should write a song called ‘Nineveh,’ the ‘world’ of this song immediately sprung to life in my spirit and we began and completed this work a relatively short time later,” says Ligertwood.

Ligertwood adds, “It is a rare and deep joy to be able to write a song that closely examines a narrative of scripture while simultaneously inviting the listener to allow the scripture to examine them. ‘Nineveh’ is one such rarity and I feel honoured to have co-written it with a songwriter and thinker I immensely respect – it was a joy from beginning to end.” 

After six mainstream albums with Sony Music under maiden name “Brooke Fraser” and in parallel, 17 years with Hillsong Worship, which she still currently leads globally, Ligertwood is combining her two decades of experience as an artist/producer and her passion for serving the church with her new solo offering under Capitol CMG.

Recorded live in Nashville, TN, “SEVEN” consists of entirely brand-new worship songs written by Ligertwood and husband/longtime collaborator Scott, Jason Ingram (who co-produced the album with her), Pastor Steven Furtick, Brandon Lake, Phil Wickham and friends. It features a band composed of gifted musicians from the breadth of the modern worship movement (Hillsong, Bethel, Vineyard, Elevation), a 30-piece choir, and a collection of stunning new prayer-soaked songs written and arranged in line with Ligertwood’s singular vision with Jesus at the center.

“Nineveh” follows on the heels of “A Thousand Hallelujahs” which continues to impact audiences around the world. The debut single from “SEVEN” has amassed over 1.7M global streams in just two weeks since release. Already No. 2 on Multitrack’s Top Songs chart, the live performance video has also garnered more than 645K views to date. Ligertwood’s full-length album is set for release on February 25.
