NEWSONG'S CRITICALLY-ACCLAIMED "FAITHFUL" DEBUTS AT #1 by Turning Point Media on 2015-03-19 14:09:20
Nashville, Tenn. — Faithful, the highly-anticipated live worship set from GRAMMY®-nominated NewSong, debuted at #1 on Nielsen SoundScan’s Praise & Worship chart for the week ending March 15. The critically-acclaimed Integrity Music project also landed at #3 on Nielsen SoundScan’s Current Contemporary Christian chart, marking the chart’s highest debut of the week.
NewSong’s first live recording since 2005’s Rescue, Faithful released March 10 and features songwriting credits from such leading artists as Matthew West, Matt Redman, All Sons & Daughters, Elias Dummer (The City Harmonic), and Desperation Band, among others.
CCMmagazine.com says of the project, “This is a perfect variety of songs—well suited to their vocal work, smart musicianship—and proves that even after a decade since their last recorded worship offering, they are, indeed, Faithful.”
The 13-song collection was produced by Nathan Nockels (Chris Tomlin, Passion) and recorded live, in-the-round at NewSong’s home church near Atlanta. Highlighted by the title-cut and debut single, an original co-penned by NewSong's Russ Lee, All Sons & Daughters’ David Leonard and Leslie Jordan, and Alli Rogers, the album also offers NewSong’s version of the Desperation Band-penned “Make A Way”; the original “Hallelujah (Bride In White),” co-written with The City Harmonic's Elias Dummer; and “Keep Me Close,” a soaring prayer of surrender co-penned by Matthew West.
Faithful is available as a CD or CD/DVD combo featuring video selections filmed during the live recording, as well as exclusive interviews with members of NewSong. A standard digital album and digital “deluxe” (featuring bonus videos) is also available.
NewSong is currently performing “Faithful” at 47 Winter Jam Tour Spectacular stops around the country. Created and hosted by the band, Winter Jam—which has seen multiple sellouts to date this year—is headlined by GRAMMY® Award-winning rockers Skillet and features 10 of Christian music’s top artists.
With a career spanning more than 30 years, 19 albums, 20 #1 Christian radio singles, a GRAMMY® Award-nomination and induction into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame, among numerous other achievements, NewSong is among the most respected artists and mentors in Christian music today. Their unparalleled ministry has been highlighted by such defining songs as “Arise, My Love,” “The Christmas Shoes” and “Rescue,” while the group’s blockbuster Winter Jam Tour Spectacular has ranked as Pollstar's #1 first-quarter tour in the world for four consecutive years, providing a powerful platform for the Gospel in major arenas around the country since 1995.
