Lamp Mode Recordings artist Shai Linne returns with “Lyrical Theology Part 1: Theology”, his fifth studio album and follow up to 2011′s “The Attributes of God”. The album will be released on April 9th. As indicated by its title, this is part one of a trilogy, with the other two albums (Part 2: Doxology and Part 3: Sociology) to be released in the near future.
Sonically and thematically, “Lyrical Theology Part 1″ is a throwback album, reminiscent of early work by artists like The Cross Movement and Ambassador. Against a mostly East Coast, underground musical backdrop, the Soli Deo Gloria Fella expounds on a number of the core teachings of the historic Christian faith. Think Wayne Grudem’s “Systematic Theology”, but with rugged drums.
“Lyrical Theology Part 1″ features production by Theory Hazit and Braille from Humble Beast, Demodocus, Die-Rek, Justword and others. It also features guest appearances from Blair Linne, Timothy Brindle, Leah Smith, Joint Heirs and Melissa T. In many ways, this album represents a return to the roots of what inspired Shai to enter the Christian Hip-hop arena in the first place. So grab your Bibles, concordances and highlighters and prepare to dive in deeply on April 9th, 2013.
Pre-orders are now available through the Lamp Mode storefront. Every pre-order receives an automatic download of a song from the album.
Here is the 2nd single from the album. It’s an exposition of Psalm 110 and features Joint Heir on the hook. Production by Theory Hazit.
