Editors’ Notes

For more than three decades, Michael W. Smith has shown an amazing ability to embrace current pop/rock sounds without blurring his identity as a Christian singer/songwriter. He’s done it again with Sovereign, an album bristling with new songwriting and production ideas. For his first studio-recorded worship project featuring original material, Smitty cowrote with such notables as Jason Ingram, Kyle Lee, and Mia Fields (as well as his son Ryan). There are touches of Mumford & Sons–style modern folk found here, heard especially in the galloping banjo-accented beat of “Sky Spills Over.” Tracks like “Miracle” and “All Arise” have overtones of arena rock with their triumphant imagery and ascending melodies. “The One That Really Matters”—a duet with Kari Jobe—ranks among the most eloquent praise ballads that Smith has ever recorded. Covers of Worship Central’s “The Same Power” and All Sons & Daughters’ “Christ Be All Around Me” are given expansive treatments that remain humbly reverent at their core. Production input from Seth Mosley (MercyMe), Chris Stevens (TobyMac, Mandisa), and Jeremy Edwardson (Jesus Culture) gives Sovereign an assertive au courant sound that complements the timeless content of its lyrics.

Sovereign Album

Heard samples of various tracks from this project as well as have purchased the first cut "You Won't Let Go". This could be his best since "A New Hallelujah". I have pre-ordered the album, which is something I rarely do, but I think you will find that this is the exception.


Just when you think Michael W. Smith can't outdo himself, He does. With each CD he produces, he ushers in the presence of God more and more. This album is his best one to date. He is very talented and a legend, but more importantly this brings you closer to God and allows you to experience His presence. Must have album of the year!


There was a time when Smith actually wrote interesting music. Those days are long gone. Ever since releasing "I 2 Eye," he's been gradually fading into Christian music fads. Everything he releases now sounds like everything else you hear on Christian radio.

Michael W. Smith became one of the most enduringly popular artists in the contemporary Christian music market while also finding brief success as a mainstream artist. The songwriter was born in Kenova, West Virginia, the son of an oil refinery worker and a caterer. He became a devout Christian at age ten and spent his teenage years around a support group of fellow believers who frequently gathered to create music. That support group split up after high school, and Smith turned to alcohol, drugs,...
