Three minutes and twenty-one seconds long. We feel this is the perfect length for announcements and other spoken elements in a worship service. If you would like Bumper Music 3 to fill a longer space, you can simply loop it and play it as long as you’d like.
Why all 12 keys?
We made Bumper Music 3 in every key because we needed it in our services. We feel this is essential, and this sets up apart from other backing track providers. When crafting an excellent worship service, being able to match the key from one element to the next is essential. This lets you have bumper music during announcements in the key of D that flow right into the next song in the key of D.
Will we make different styles?
Yes. Volume one is a high energy pop style track that we feel works perfectly in a modern contemporary worship context, Volume 2 is a melodic piano track, and Volume 3 is a laid-back pop/rock track, but we will create more volumes in different styles in the future.
