Carolyn Arends Partners with Steve Bell to Release 'Psalm 5' Single and Video

March 4, 2022

Canadian recording artist Carolyn Arends is releasing PSALM 5 to streaming platforms, the first single from her IN THE MORNING acoustic worship EP. The vintage praise tune gets a fresh, prayerful treatment, featuring a duet vocal from fellow artist Steve Bell and a plaintive violin solo from Spencer Capier.

Alongside the single, Arends is also releasing a meditative black and white video, her fifth collaboration with filmmaker THE ARCTIC. 

Asked about the timing of this particular release, Carolyn notes that the mood of the psalmist seems to reflect much of what is heavy on the hearts of God’s people in this season. “With the start of Lent - not to mention the situation in the Ukraine and global unrest,” Arends observes, “it seems like a prayer that might be helpful for many.”

PSALM 5 can be heard wherever you listen to music online. It comes from the new worship EP, IN THE MORNING. While singles from IN THE MORNING are being released one at a time to streaming platforms, the full project is available now at


“One of the most affecting communicators in any genre.” – Billboard Magazine

Carolyn Arends has released 14 albums and is the author of 3 critically-acclaimed books. 15 of Arends’ songs have become top 10 radio singles on the Canadian pop and US Christian charts. Arends has earned 2 Dove Awards, 3 Juno Nominations, and was recognized as the West Coast Music Awards’ Songwriter of the Year. Her prose has been recognized by The Word Guild, The Evangelical Press Association and The Canadian Church Press Awards.

Carolyn is following up the release of RECOGNITION (an album of twelve new rootsy and melodic originals) with IN THE MORNING (an acoustic worship EP).

In addition to her busy touring and speaking schedule, Carolyn serves as the director of education for Renovaré, a far-reaching organization that encourages and nurtures personal and spiritual renewal. She has also been a regular columnist for Christianity Today and Faith Today, and has served as an adjunct professor at a number of universities. She lives in Surrey, BC with her husband, Mark, and their young adult children Benjamin and Bethany.
