Saviour King is the sixteenth album in the live praise and worship series of Christian Contemporary music by Hillsong Church. It debuted at No. 6 on the ARIA album chart on 9 July 2007,[1] while the DVD debuted at No. 2 on the DVD chart.[2] On the US Billboard Top Christian Albums Chart, it debuted at No. 5.

Making of the album[edit]

Saviour King was recorded live at the Acer Arena on 18 March 2007 by Darlene Zschech and the Hillsong team after the annual Hillsong Colour Conference. After many years at the Sydney Entertainment Centre, Hillsong Church moved the annual live album recording to the Acer Arena. This was also the last official album to feature Steve McPherson as a vocalist. McPherson is still a part of Hillsong Church as a publisher. Also, this was the last album in which Zschech appeared as a worship pastor.

The front cover depicts Hillsong Church congregation and the Hillsong Live logo, while the inverse side depicts Darlene Zschech, Reuben Morgan, Joel Houston and Marty Sampson.

Writing and composition[edit]

The album contains songs written and used in Hillsong Church from early 2006 to March 2007. Songs such as "I'm Not Ashamed" and "Here in My Life" were written earlier in 2006, while songs like "Lord of Lords", "In the Mystery" and "One Thing" were written around the time of the album recording. "Break Free", "Hosanna" and "Saviour King" were released on the Hillsong United album All of the Above.

The majority of songs were written by Marty Sampson, Reuben Morgan, Joel Houston, Brooke Fraser, Mia Fieldes and Ben Fielding. Matt Crocker from Hillsong United youth, who wrote songs on the Hillsong United EP In a Valley by the Sea, contributed to two songs.
