Martin Smith's second full-length studio album 'God's Great Dance Floor: Step 02' releases on 30th September, and can be pre-ordered from iTunes on the 15th September. The eleven-track album includes three previously unreleased songs, plus eight tracks from Martin's mini EPs, Movemement Three & Four. Keep an eye out for the iTunes Extras that will be available, including live tracks and videos.
This collection of worship songs is rich with biblical context and structure and features vocals from the very talented Sarah Bird on 'God Is Coming', and Martin's daughter Elle-Anna on title track 'God's Great Dance Floor'. The album also includes co-writes with Tim Hughes (Worship Central), Reuben Morgan (Hillsong) and Matt Redman.
New songs featured on the album for the first time are opening tracks 'You Are My Salvation' and 'Emmanuel', plus 'Great Is Your Faithfulness'. Also included on the album is 'Angel (Song For Anna)', which is a new version of the song Delirious fans might remember as 'There Is An Angel' with newly penned verses, plus 'Song Of Solomon', a song Martin describes as "one of the most intimate songs I've ever written".
Meanwhile, Martin has just received two Dove Award nominations, the first of his solo career. His Spanish album 'Dia De Redencion (Day of Redemption)' was nominated for Spanish Language Album of the Year, and the 'Live From New York' album Martin recorded with Jesus Culture is nominated for Special Event Album of the Year.
