Matt Conner has a great interview with Third Day over on the CCM Blog. As everyone is anticipating the final availability and full release of their newest album â€œRevelationâ€ this interview gives you even more reasons to be a fan of this tremendous group of guys.
â€œWhat was funny with this record is that we got everything we could have wanted,â€ says Anderson. â€œWeâ€™ve learned that the limitations that people feel for Christian music are self-imposed. We can prevent our own progression. If we could just be bold enough to go for what we really want, we might actually get it. Weâ€™ve learned this over the years. We wanted Brendan Oâ€™Brien [Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, Train] to mix our albums for years, and we were told that it couldnâ€™t happen. So finally, I just picked up the phone, called him myself and he said, â€˜Oh yeah, I love the band. Iâ€™d love to do it.â€™ Along the way, people were just assuming he wouldnâ€™t do it.
How many times do I (or you) apologize and limit ourselves for what we think is reality which in Godâ€™s reality isnâ€™t what weâ€™d expect at all for our lives?
