Mercy Me Release Eighth Studio Album 'Welcome To The New'

Apr 08 2014

Grammy-nominated, American Music Award and Dove Award winning band MercyMe have released their eighth studio album 'Welcome To The New' this week. Collaborating with producers David Garcia and Ben Glover (TobyMac, Mandisa), the album represents a shift in tone for the multi-platinum selling group.

"At 41-years-old, I feel like I am just starting to grasp who I am in Christ," says lead singer Bart Millard.

"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!"

The album includes first single 'Shake', which had an energetic music video accompanying it. Filmed on the downtown streets of Huntsville, Alabama, with dancers from the North Alabama Dance Center and over 100 local extras, the choreographed music video has been viewed nearly 700,000 times over several video platforms.

'Welcome To The New' Track Listing:
1. Welcome To The New
2. Gotta Let It Go
3. Shake
4. Greater
5. Finish What He Started
6. Flawless
7. New Lease On Life
8. Wishful Thinking
9. Burn Baby Burn
10. Dear Younger Me
