South Florida-based group, House of Peace, is pleased to announce the July 12 release of the highly-anticipated, new single, “Let Your Face Shine,” along with an accompanying lyric video, which is now available on YouTube.
Available nationwide, the single is a precursor to the band’s second full-length project, Welcome to the River, which is set to be out this fall.
House of Peace leading member David Liscum not only served as songwriter, but he also produced the single. As producer, Liscum recruited world-renowned mixer, Sam Gibson, who is recognized for songs like “Oceans,” and the album Wonder from Hillsong UNITED, the Jesus Culture album, Let It Echo, and many other leading worship albums.
The July release of “Let Your Face Shine,” is an “extended” or longer version of the song. A shorter four-minute version of the song will be released to radio stations this fall and showcased on Welcome to the River.
Liscum said “Let Your Face Shine” was born out of prophetic experiences at two churches he has been involved with for a long time.
“The verses came out of a worship and prayer night at Awakening House of Prayer and the chorus was written at the Harbour, during a home fellowship meeting, where I was leading worship. In both settings, spontaneous worship is encouraged and it’s natural that songs are birthed in those moments,” explained Liscum.
He said the song is based on the Aaronic Blessing or benediction, which talks about being close to God, face to face, and how his glory shines upon us.
“In my heart, I felt like had to release something in a song that connected with the awesome reality that God’s light shines upon us,” Liscum said.
House of Peace first hit the Christian music scene in 2012 and were featured on iStand With Israel, a compilation CD released through Sony/Provident Music Group. In 2015, House of Peace released their first full-length album, Into the Great Unknown on Capitol Christian Records. The project featured five songs that were produced by Grammy Award and Dove Award-winning producer, Ed Cash. Additionally, the band’s song, “New Life” was used with a movie score called “One Child,” and was featured on the movie soundtrack for The Identical, which starred Ray Liotta and Ashley Judd.
