COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.-Joy To The World, the first Christmas collection from celebrated worship leader Lincoln Brewster, will release October 9 on the Integrity Music label. One of the most anticipated holiday releases in the Christian genre this year, Joy To The World was produced by Brewster and Colby Wedgeworth.

Highlights of the recording include "Little Drummer Boy," the project's debut radio single, featuring a guest appearance by KJ-52; "Shout For Joy," penned by Brewster, Paul Baloche and Jason Ingram; and "Our God," the worship favorite written by Matt Redman, Chris Tomlin, Jesse Reeves and Jonas Myrin, which Brewster incorporated into Christmas services held last year at his home church in Sacramento. In addition, Joy To The World includes new arrangements of such classic carols as "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," "Do You Hear What I Hear?" and "O Holy Night (Another Hallelujah)," among other selections.

"Sometimes Christmas music can slip by as festive, and what we're singing about can be marginalized, so with Joy To The World, I wanted to try-as often as possible-to make the music sound like what the lyrics were saying," said Brewster. "We set out to do arrangements that hadn't been done before, a record with a modern edge, capturing a new take. Being a worship pastor, it's challenging to keep things fresh, but I think we got there. I'm really happy with the style and sound of each of these songs."

The project's musical centerpiece is "Miraculum," a three-movement instrumental incorporating "Carol Of The Bells," "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," "We Three Kings," "O Come O Come Emmanuel," and "O Holy Night."

"I have only recorded a few instrumental pieces in my career, but it's one of the things I really love being able to do," said Brewster. "I hope that 'Miraculum' will provide a musical setting that churches can grab onto and use in their own services during the holidays."

Lincoln Brewster is a Dove Award-nominated worship leader, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter. His 2010 Integrity/Columbia Music recording, Real Life, debuted at #1 on Nielsen Soundscan's Praise & Worship Albums chart. Brewster serves as worship arts pastor at Bayside Church in Sacramento. In addition to solo performances, he regularly leads worship seminars and workshops around the country. Follow him on Twitter @lincolnbrewster.

Joy To The World is distributed by Provident Distribution and will be available October 9 at retail outlets worldwide. For further information, visit www.lincolnbrewster.com, www.integritymusic.com
