One of CCM’s most dynamic talents, Unspoken returns with their first new album in three years, Reason. Band members Chad Mattson, Ariel Munoz, and Alan Pelno poured their personal stories and vulnerabilities into this new batch of songs, all of which pointed to a central message: “Every song on the album has the idea that God’s love is the reason—it’s the reason we have everything needed, it’s the reason we can love ourselves, that we can forgive, that we’ve made it this far, to know we’re gonna be all right,” lead singer Chad Mattson describes. “This album is about sharing with people that you have a reason to believe, to persevere, to trust.” Reason showcases the rhythmic groove and catchy melodies Unspoken is known for, along with new gospel and soul influences. It all comes together to create an engaging record that listeners will relate to and remember the Truth - God’s love as total provision for our lives.
