Arden, North Carolina (March 31, 2023) — With the arrival of Spring, thoughts turn to Easter, so as The Talleys continue their Messages To Treasure: A Live Anthology series, featuring streaming-only live versions of their biggest and best-loved hit songs, it’s only natural that they would offer a new single that focuses on the miracle of Christ’s Resurrection. Matching the joy and grandeur of the moment with an approach that frames the trio’s voices in an expansive orchestrated arrangement, this live “Death Was Arrested / He’s Alive” will bring a flood of memories to those who witnessed their concerts, while immersing old and new fans alike in its compelling musical grace.
Led by Roger Talley’s piano, “Death Was Arrested” is centered around Lauren Talley’s exquisitely wide-ranging voice, which begins in a low register that reflects the anguish of the opening lyric:
Alone in my sorrow and dead in my sin
Lost without hope with no place to begin
Yet by the time Roger and Debra Talley join Lauren in the majestic chorus, where her voice soars above theirs, the lyrics have turned to triumph and gratitude that are at once deeply personal and universal, giving thanks for God’s mercy and the salvation betokened by the Resurrection.
Oh, Your grace so free
Washes over me
You have made me new
Now life begins with You
It’s Your endless love
Pouring down on us
You have made us new
Now life begins with You
“‘Death Was Arrested’ is one of the most powerful new Christian anthems for the Easter season that has come along in many years,” notes Roger. “During the last few years of The Talleys’ tours, we combined it with the quintessential Easter favorite, ‘He’s Alive’ for an unforgettable climax to your concerts. I hope you will make these great songs part of your Easter worship this year and many years to come.”
