NewSong have always been a little different from your average Christian band, simply having eight members is a little off the wall for a start with, but with album 10 (including live and greatest hits projects) they have moved on to a new radical place. For a start, this release is packaged with a duplicate copy for you to give away to a friend or loved one. The band are also working for the first time with renowned producer Charlie Peacock (Switchfoot, Margaret Becker). Possibly most important of all, returning to the NewSong lineup is Russ Lee the lead singer who briefly left for a solo career and who possess an awesome set of blue-eyed soul vocal chops. The result is a tight, polished album full of strong material, infectious hooks, and toe tapping beats that sounds a little at times like Maroon 5. From the rocking drum opening of "Hope", the heartfelt lyrics of "That's What Mercy Is" and the truly inspiring lyrics of the title track and "God Hears", it is difficult to fault anything here. Brits are still to catch onto NewSong by any great number but this is a fine place to start. And it's a great album to 'give away'!
