Acclaimed husband/wife duo Seth & Nirva make their long-awaited return March 13 with One Voice, an impassioned 13-track collection of music and spoken-word vignettes. The project showcases the couple at their most vulnerable and most confident, tackling such deeply personal topics as racial reconciliation and apologetics.
Helmed by UK-based songwriter/producer Jimmy James (Matt Redman, Guvna B) and Seth Ready, One Voice features guest turns from Newsboys’ Michael Tait, as well as Mr. Talkbox and Dr. Tony Evans, among others. Opening with the upbeat, synth-driven “Light Up The Sky,” a call to love one another above all, Tait is featured on “Turning Over Tables,” a plea for unity in combatting fear and hate. Additionally, the project includes the poignant “Mercy,” a tender request for the Savior’s grace in the face of pain and injustice.
An excerpt from the teaching of internationally-renowned pastor, broadcaster and author Dr. Tony Evans is among the spoken selections highlighted on One Voice. Titled “Kingdom Over Culture,” the track features Evans’ explanation that racial unity can only be found in Christ. “…Black is only beautiful when it’s biblical, and white is only right when it agrees with Holy writ,” he says.
“This album is meant to call us back to a unity that is founded in Christ and in biblical principles, rather than in the latest waves of political correctness,” Seth says. Nirva adds, “In a time when our culture is desperately searching for an answer to the divisions we are experiencing, we hope to point people in the only direction where a real solution can be found—the way of Christ. The only way forward is by going back and recovering our biblical foundations, which is what we want to communicate through this album.”
