A Greater Song was recorded at Community Christian Fellowship in Lindale, Texas, where Paul has served as worship pastor for more than 16 years. ďI wanted to capture the sound of my church,Ē he says. ďThey just sing loud and Iíve always wanted to capture what happens at our church on Sunday mornings. Iíve always recorded at other places around here, but Iíve never actually captured our people on Sunday morning. So often these songs are birthed in the midst of those Sunday mornings, a sermon or somebodyís prayer. So itís fun to be able to actually finish what takes place in our church there at our church. The songs are test-driven. Many times Iíll try them there. Itís a spiritual laboratory where I can try out new songs and I get a sense immediately if itís something that is really congregational.Ē
Though many of Paulís songs have been written solo, A Greater Song finds the gifted writer collaborating with other noted songwriter/worship leaders, among them Matt Redman, Graham Kendrick, Brenton Brown and Sara Groves. ďGraham Kendrick invited me to a songwriters retreat for a couple of days,Ē recalls Paul of the spark that led to many of the songs on the new album. ďIt was really inspiring to me to hang with some of these guys and to spend some time co-writing with Graham and Matt Redman for a couple of days. It inspired my own soul and my own heart and thatís what I needed as we were approaching the new album. A lot of these guys are friends Iíve known for a long time. I think if thereís a theme on this record, maybe the theme is friendship and collaboration for the Kingdom of God.Ē
