Contemporary Gospel songstress Hlengiwe Ntombela, popularly known as HLE, has revealed 28 August 2020 as the release date of her first solo album titled Your Kingdom On Earth (YKOE).
The announcement was made with an exclusive album trailer on DSTV’s Christian music channel ONE Gospel. The album comes off the back of the former Joyous Celebration singer’s acclaimed singles “You Are” and the iTunes Chart-topping “Dwala”.
Speaking on the feeling of finally sharing her album with the world, HLE beams with excitement. “I’ve been listening to this since it was recorded and every time I hear it, it has a different emotion to it and effect on me,” she says. “It’s hitting me in daily intervals that this is not only mine now. Every ear will hear this and feel what I’ve felt for the past year.” Recorded at Sky Rink Studios in Jo’burg, the project is a 13-track live album produced by HLE alongside award-winning gospel producer Siyanqoba Mthethwa.
The album displays HLE’s prowess as a solo act and folds various styles of gospel – from the funky to the soulful and emotive – into a solid body of work. With the album now available for pre-order, fans can get their hands on an absolute favourite “Nguwe,” to tide them over until release day.
Your Kingdom On Earth is scheduled for release on all digital platforms on the 28th of August. Pre-order here to be the first to get the music when released
