The music producer best known for his ASBO Jesus cartoons has released an album of old Southern Gospel songs.
Rev Jon Birch's The Devil Don't Stand a Chance promises to "uplift your spirits and bring a smile to your face". The nine track recording features new versions of classic songs including I'll Fly Away and When I Lay My Burden Down.
Speaking about the the album, which is currently on sale for £6.99, Rev Birch said: "These songs do not represent my theology, but I love their spirit, their humanity, their heart and the amazing spontaneity and emotion in these amazing performances.
"It won't be long before the original recordings on which these tracks are based are 100 years old. The idea that no one except historians and people with a special interest will hear these songs again is just too sad to contemplate.
"I hope you enjoy listening to these tracks as much as I enjoyed making them."
The producer has made one of the songs No Use To Run available to listen to for free on Proost.co.uk
Rev Birch founded Proost in 1997 with fellow creative Jonny Baker. The company produces and publishes a variety of films, books and music to aid Christians and churches in worship settings.
An invitation has been made for people to remix the album.
Writing on the Proost website, Rev Birch says: "We think it would be fun to do a remix album of these tunes. If you would be interested in remixing a track send us an e-mail."
