Hillsong UNITED’s ‘PEOPLE’ Album Breaks Record
Premier worship collective, Hillsong UNITED, released their long-awaited new album, PEOPLE, on April 26th. PEOPLE marks the band’s highest charting record yet with an impressive No. 2 debut on Billboard’s Top 200. PEOPLE is the band’s fourth record to debut in the Top 10 on Billboard’s all genre chart, besting Wonder (No. 10 in 2017), Empires (No. 5 in 2015) and Zion (No. 5 in 2013). Boosted by sales linked to an album pre-order with tour ticket offer, PEOPLE sold 101,000 copies, according to Billboard, making it the week’s top selling album and the best sale week ever recorded for UNITED.
Hillsong UNITED is a multi-award-winning, platinum selling artist whose chart successes are only bested by the millions of lives they’ve impacted across the globe. Reporting over 50 million people singing from the Hillsong catalogue every Sunday, the modest band born from a youth ministry out of local church in Australia, touts a reach of over 10 million across all major social network platforms to date, including 2.1 billion minutes garnered from YouTube viewers.
For PEOPLE, UNITED have kept things simple; returning to where it all began. The record is truly all about the people we engage with everyday – those believers are called to reach with the Gospel and to whom we witness God’s unfailing love.
PEOPLE is available now on CD, limited edition vinyl and across digital music platforms. The DVD features the full-length worship experience in HD, with an additional 6 bonus acoustic video performances and 15 language subtitles.
