MercyMe ready 'Welcome To The New'

THE LATEST album by CCM veterans MercyMe will be released by Fair Trade Services on 8th April. 'Welcome To The New' was produced by David Garcia and Ben Glover (TobyMac, Mandisa). Said the band's Bart Millard, "At 41-years-old, I feel like I am just starting to grasp who I am in Christ. I grew up in a somewhat legalistic environment where the harder you try, the better God likes you. It was about two years ago a dear friend of mine reminded me I cannot do enough great things to make Christ love me more than He already does. Not to mention, I can't sabotage this relationship and be taken from His hand. In other words, all the work was truly done on the cross and I cannot mess it up! This is not a new season in my life, it is my life! Everything has changed from this point on, and I want to tell this to anyone who will listen and be the first to welcome them to the new!" A single, "Shake", from 'Welcome To The New' has already been a major US Christian radio hit. CR
