Martin Smith Shares JOY With The World With New Single 'Joy (What The World Calls Foolish)'

Mar 03 2024

Prolific songwriter, modern worship pioneer, and award-winning artist Martin Smith continues to share his exuberant joy and faith throughout his latest single, "Joy (What The World Calls Foolish)," out today. In his illustrious 20+ year music career with more than 300M global streams to his name, Smith continues to pour out new music to share with the world. A lyric video and a Worship Together live performance video also drop today - both can be viewed below.


"JOY…to the world - I'm so pleased this song is finally out." Smith shares. "It’s more than a song but a testimony of how kind God is. That we can really only find true Joy in his presence. Even when there are cracks appearing all over my life, I can put on a garment of praise. Sometimes I lead worship with a guitar, sometimes I’ll grab a flag. The world may call it foolish, but something powerful happens when we praise God with passion and sacrifice. What costs us nothing changes nothing. So yep, not everyone’s cup of tea, I know, but I’m young enough to run around the room and old enough to not care what anyone thinks. Here comes the JOY."


Martin Smith has penned many of the church's most loved songs while shaping the modern worship scene. The former frontman of the top-charting band Delirious? and multi-GMA Dove Award winner has toured worldwide in his vast career, performing in arenas and stadiums to millions of people, including Glastonbury Festival’s main stage. He has also toured with Bon Jovi and Bryan Adams and most recently opened for Kari Jobe and Cody Carnes on their "The Blessing" European tour. Smith has also appeared in Nashville for both the "Worship Together" conference and at Bridgestone Arena for "The Send" conference.
