Hawk Nelson’s new studio album, Miracles (Fair Trade Services), is available now. The band’s eighth studio project features their current single, "He Still Does (Miracles)," which is currently heard on more than 60 stations - including SiriusXM, Air 1, WAY-FM, WAWZ/New York, WONU/Chicago, KTIS/Minneapolis, KSOS/Las Vegas, WRBS/Baltimore and WFHM/Cleveland.
Leading up to the release, Hawk Nelson has released four videos and singles, including one which can be viewed below.
While working on this new album, Hawk Nelson found themselves reevaluating their mission and even questioning their future. According to frontman Jon Steingard, the new LP was the foursome’s “most hard fought record” to date. The struggle originated, ironically, with success. The band’s 2015 release, Diamonds, was arguably one of the biggest of their career, generating a trio of radio hits such as the title track “Live Like You’re Loved” and the nine-week No. 1 smash, “Drops in the Ocean.”
Crafting a follow-up after such a steady stream of wins proved unexpected challenges in the midst of personal change for the band. In the three years since Diamonds debuted, guitarist Micah Kuiper got married; frontman Jon Steingard and his wife welcomed their first child, Grey; along with his passion for drumming, David Niacaris took up a new hobby of photography; while bassist Daniel Biro endured health complications that sidelined him for three tours. In many ways, both personally and professionally, the journey leading up to Miracles has been one of surrender.
