NASHVILLE, TENN. -July 18, 2013 - Hillsong Church is introducing a new generation of worship music with the announcement of Young & Free, which officially launched at the recent annual Hillsong Conference in Sydney, Australia. This expression of worship from the youth of the church has released their debut single "Alive" this week at iTunes, which is already at No. 1 on the iTunes Christian & Gospel single chart. This single also had an immediate response in their home country as it become the second Hillsong song to hit the Australian ARIA singles chart.

Creating such a new sound is a bold move for Hillsong, who has a sound and worship style the world has come to know and love with the releases from UNITED and LIVE brands. Stylistically Young & Free is more of a reflection of what youth are listening to now.

"Young & Free is more than a label, it is also our message and mission," shares Laura Toggs, team leader for Young & Free. "This is a generation called to stand strong in their youth and in their freedom, refusing to allow others to dismiss them for their age. Songs arising from Young & Free are unlike anything that we have ever done before, and we believe that through them young people will find life and deep, unending joy in Jesus. We are the voice of THIS generation."

The debut album from Young & Free titled We Are Young & Free will release on October 1. The band will also be traveling to the U.S. to perform at the first ever Hillsong U.S. Conferences in New York City and Los Angeles (more info on the conference here). Young & Free members will also join UNITED on their fall-leg of the WELCOMEZION tour.

About YOUNG & FREE:
Young & Free is the sound of Hillsong Youth. They are a youth ministry by name, but by identity they are individuals who have found hope, salvation, joy, forgiveness and a future in Jesus Christ. Their songs are the overflow of their hearts and a reflection of life in Jesus.

About Hillsong Church:
In August 1983, Brian and Bobbie Houston founded the Hills Christian Life Centre in the Hills District of Sydney, Australia. It has grown from a congregation of 45 to what is said to be the largest local church in Australian history. It has now expanded to be a global church with local expressions in significant cities; with churches in Australia, London, New York, Paris, Cape Town, Stockholm, Germany, Kiev, Amsterdam and Copenhagen. Each week, tens of thousands of people across the globe call Hillsong Church 'home' and the reach, impact and influence of this local congregation is seen across many nations.
