“When everything goes wrong, the world - Oh, the world needs a song,” says the chorus of “The World Needs A Song,” the title track to The Lore Family’s new album for Horizon Records, and as Darren Lore — father and founder of the family quartet — observes, that’s a message that is at once a timeless expression of faith and a message that could have been inspired by a multitude of present-day headlines.
“As our family planned to record this project, we had no idea what would unfold in 2020,” he notes. “But God in His infinite knowledge knew what the world would be facing. The heaviness and heartache the world would experi- ence was unlike anything we’d ever been through. Still, nothing ever takes God by surprise. There is no struggle, situation, season or storm that catches Him off guard. He is always watching over the world. He is able and willing to comfort and guide His children through dark and confusing times. Great Is His Faithfulness.”
Keeping that wisdom firmly in their sights, the Family — Darren, wife Sandy, and their children, Samuel and Fayth along with Fayth’s husband, Jake — persevered, and the result is a collection that offers the single, unchanging message of God’s grace through a masterful variety of sounds that range from country-flavored arrangements through echoes of African-American church styles to songs that lift up the majesty of the gospel message with the grandeur of intricate orchestral settings.
