Free backing track and chord chart
Each month we try to give a free MultiTrack backing track away. This is always subject to permissions from writers and publishers for gratis use.
This month's free track is Heaven's Declaration, a wonderful pop based worship song with some unusual and refreshing chord changes that works great in MultiTrack fromat alongside a live band. It's written by Mark Alan Schoolmeesters, Johan Asgarde, Oliver Lundstrom and Chase Wagner (who also wrote last months free track). This is the second offering from Common Exchange which is an online platform for songs from a growing movement that emphasises the priesthood of all believers; that the church is a community in which everyone has a part to play, a story to tell and an idea to share. This movement is beginning to yield a growing community of worship leaders, songwriters and producers that have a desire to create worship songs that work well in smaller communities, meaning that production serves the song and not the other way around.
Free chord chart available from Common Exchange.
Familiar names on the site are United Pursuit, Aaron Keyes, Micah Massey and Stuart Townend but there are plenty of other contributors worth watching out for too including a few Brits like Matthew Macauley and even Musicademy regular, Matt Weeks.
Most Common Exchange recordings are stripped down acoustic versions designed to be accessible for smaller congregations, so by nature aren’t suitable for a MultiTrack format, but here Chase has given us access to his fabulous pop based, MultiTrack version full of great sounds and perfect for use alongside your worship bands.
Check out the Common Exchange website for the story of the song, as well as lyrics and a free downloadable chord chart.
You will need a copy of Worship Backing Band's MultiTrack Player to play the backing track. MultiTrack is the simplest and least expensive solution to get a full band sound from your worship team, even if you’ve only got a couple of musicians.
