The new album, which releases on May 26, is Hillsong's follow-up to "Zion," their fastest-selling album to date. "EMPIRES" is available for pre-sale now, but Hillsong fans can already enjoy both the lyrics video to "Touch the Sky" as well as the story behind the song straight from band members Joel Houston and Taya Smith.
