Acclaimed singer, songwriter Caroline Cobb launches her fourth album, A King & His Kindness, to streaming, digital and retail outlets internationally Oct. 1 through Integrity Music. Available to pre-savepre-order now, the recording zooms in on the heart of Jesus and is rich with biblical imagery, intimate arrangements and poetic lyrics meant to help the Church rehearse and remember God’s Story.

Produced by Isaac Wardell (Josh Garrels, Sandra McCracken) and featuring Tyler Chester (Madi Cunningham, Switchfoot), gospel trio Resound (Lauren Daigle), Taylor Leonhardt (Mission House) and Sean Carter (People & Songs), A King & His Kindness is the fourth in an anthology of albums that builds on Cobb’s acclaimed Story-telling projects A Seed, A Sunrise (2020), A Home & a Hunger (2017) and the Blood + the Breath (2013). Each album traces a biblical theme from creation to Christ’s return, with every song parachuting into a different scene from scripture.

“My last three albums were more sweeping and panoramic, taking a wide-angle view of the biblical Story, tracing a theme all the way from Genesis to Revelation. Over the past few years, I've been eager to zoom in, to get up-close to the person that the whole Story hinges on: Jesus,” shares Cobb. “He had a real life and lived with real people, teaching about his kingdom, showing compassion, turning over tables. He is not a concept or an idea, but a person whose life demands a response.

“With all that's going on in the world and in the Church right now, my prayer is that these songs will have a re-centering effect, bringing us home to Him,” continues Cobb.

Songs like “Your Heart Was Set” and “Who Is This Jesus” are intimate portraits of Jesus, exploring both his real, human suffering and his divinity, prompting listeners to wonder, “Who is this and how can this be?” Songs like “Jesus, Full of Compassion” and “Find Rest (Matthew 11),” the latter premiered by Worship Leader, place the listener inside the gospel stories, warmly inviting listeners into a relationship with a loving and personal God. In contrast, “Turn the Tables,” “Come After Me,” and “Let It Be So with Your Church” challenge consumerism and status quo Christianity, urging listeners to take seriously Jesus’ call to pick up their cross and live as “true followers.” Cobb unpacks these ideas more in an editorial she wrote for The Gospel Coalition.



“In writing and recording these songs, I’ve loved getting up-close with the person of Jesus and seeing myself in these stories,” continues Cobb. “But it’s been challenging too: when we are confronted with the real Jesus, indifference is not a viable option. We must respond. Charles Spurgeon said that ‘if Christ be anything, He must be everything.’ My prayer is that these songs will make Jesus more real to us - in all His humanity and divinity, compassion and kingship - and that we would respond by casting aside our indifference and casting our whole lives on Him.”

Calling attention to both His authority and compassion, two seemingly opposed traits that come together beautifully in the person and work of Jesus, the full A King & His Kindness track listing follows:

1) “The Year of His Favor (Isaiah 61)”

2) “Who Is This Jesus”

3) “Don’t Want To Miss Your Heart”

4) “Jesus, Full of Compassion”

5) “Your Heart Was Set”

6) “Find Rest (Matthew 11)”

7) “Turn the Tables”

8) “Come After Me”

9) “Let It Be So with Your Church”
