Integrity Music and Jesus Culture Music announce the highly anticipated, second solo album from Kim Walker-Smith, Still Believe, which releases Jan. 15. The album was recorded live with a full band, including an orchestral strings section, during a night filled with radical worship for Jesus at the Cascade Theater in Redding, CA.
Known worldwide as a leading voice in the Jesus Culture movement and as one of the worship leaders in the Jesus Culture band, Walker-Smith’s Still Believe marks her first solo album in nearly five years. The album features primarily original songs, with Walker-Smith co-writing two songs and writing the title track.
“It’s very rare for me to write a song so quickly, but this song just came bursting out as if it was always in there just waiting to come out,” shares Walker-Smith about “Still Believe.” “The message of the song is saying, ‘I Still Believe that you are the God who heals, despite anything I may be facing or the mountain in my way.'”
The full Still Believe track and songwriter listing follows:
1. “Alive” – Gabe Kossol, Jeremy Edwardson
2. “Waste It All” – Chris McClarney, Christa Black, Laura Rhinehart
3. “The King is Here” – Christa Black, Kim Walker-Smith
4. “Yield My Heart” – Kim Walker-Smith, Christa Black

“The goal of these events is to gather together worshippers to seek the Lord and encounter Him through whole-hearted, passionate worship,” says Banning Liebscher, director of Jesus Culture.
Widely known for her passionate and contagious pursuit of God’s Presence in worship, Walker-Smith, along with her husband Skyler (who played guitars and percussion on Still Believe), leads, teaches and imparts worship around the world. Named one of the “Emerging Leaders of Tomorrow’s Church” by Charisma magazine (2010), her rendition of the John Mark McMillan song, “How He Loves,” has been viewed over 8.5 million times on YouTube, while her own song, “Where You Go I Go,” has nearly four million views.
