Bestselling CCM band MercyMe to release 'Lifer' album

THE EAGERLY awaited album by Nashville hitmakers MercyMe, 'Lifer' will be issued in the UK through Authentic Media in March. Said lead singer Bart Millard, "This new record is the logical next chapter after our last album and it carries a new perspective. 'Welcome To The New' was all about grace and identity in Christ; a welcoming to the life of being a new creation by grace. And it's such an exciting truth to grasp. But then life continues to go on and eventually the newness of that wears off and we need encouragement and support to sustain us. For me personally, I sing about being new every night on tour and I don't always feel new. So the album title 'Lifer' and the theme of the record is all about reminding ourselves and others about the victory we have in the end for Christ. We are all in this for life - even on the days when we don't feel like doing any of it. We want the songs to be a morale boost to remind people of who they are and what Christ has done." CR
