Premier Gospel award-winning UK Gospel Artist Charles Dada returns with surprise EP – Faceless (WhiteBlock and The Icho Media).
With what we’re all witnessing in the world right now, from protests across the globe calling for racial justice, to the mass calling for an end to police brutality against black people. All resulting as a response to the unjust, undignified and inhumane killing of George Floyd by police officers in America. This and the COVID-19 epidemic led Charles to make the decision to put the production of his debut live album “OutPour” on hold and instead release an EP with new songs that really call for us to seek the face of God during these uncertain times. Faceless highlights his musical diversity; displaying music genres such as; Afro Pop, R&B and Country influences.
“Faceless” means concealing of the ‘face’ by light or purposeful intention. The call of God upon our lives should make us; faceless, placeless and timeless. Now is the time for us to be bold enough to bring our gifts to the world; not for fame, not for likes or followers but because we are created by Him for a purpose.
Charles Dada introduces the 7-Track EP with the title track “Faceless”. The acoustic feel sets the mood of the record from the start.
Recently the lead single from Faceless, “Hallelujah” is a song of hope – it provides a reminder to put our trust in God. With everything going on in the world right now all we can do is raise a Hallelujah as it is the highest form of praise and a universal language uniting all His people together. ….
Hallelujah” and “Lord Of All” proclaim His sovereignty. They further go on to say that He is the master of the universe and none compares to him.
Other songs featured on Faceless include an acoustic version of his debut single “Breathe”. There’s no better time to ask God to breathe in our nation and stir our hearts.
“Forever” takes on a fresh Afro-pop sound, reminding people that regardless of what is going on right now, He remains God forever. “All to You” features renowned UK Gospel Rapper Triple O, taking us back to his early RnB roots with a strong message that God reigns and rules over our world. The message is very strong. We need a strong God and He has the power to change all things so here we are; Faceless -The Road To Outpour.
