Canadian recording artist Carolyn Arends recently released “Psalm 5” to streaming platforms, the first single from her In The Morning acoustic worship EP. The vintage praise tune gets a fresh, prayerful treatment, featuring a duet vocal from fellow artist Steve Bell and a plaintive violin solo from Spencer Capier.
Alongside the single, Arends also released a meditative black and white video, her fifth collaboration with filmmaker THE ARCTIC.
Asked about the timing of this particular release, Carolyn notes that the mood of the psalmist seems to reflect much of what is heavy on the hearts of God’s people in this season. “With the start of Lent, not to mention the situation in Ukraine and global unrest,” Arends observes, “it seems like a prayer that might be helpful for many.”
“Psalm 5” is available now on all streaming platforms. It comes from the new worship EP, In The Morning. While singles from the EP are being released one at a time to streaming platforms, the full-length project is available now at www.carolynarends.com.
