Fresh Listening: New Music from Jordan Smith, Jeremy Camp, Ellie Holcomb and Mike Donehey
Today, Jordan Smith, Jeremy Camp, Ellie Holcomb and Mike Donehey have all dropped new singles. Here's our chance to catch up with the latest Christian music releases.
1. Jordan Smith "Battles"
"The Voice" season 9 winner Jordan Smith has released a new song, "Battles," available now. It is also accompanied by a live performance video.
Smith shares, "I wrote 'Battles' with two of Christian music's best - Jonas Myrin and Ed Cash. The message at the heart of the song is one of confidence - not in who we are or what we can do - but in the faithfulness and power that God has shown throughout each of our stories."
2. Jeremy Camp "When You Speak"
Jeremy Camp returns with the "When You Speak," the first single off of Camp's new album, due later this year. The song follows the chart-topping success of his most recent project, The Story's Not Over, which yielded three No. 1 radio hits - "Dead Man Walking," "Keep Me In the Moment" and "Out of My Hands."
"God gave me the words I didn't think I had for the longest time," says Jeremy Camp. "I'm so pumped to share this new music which brought life to my soul after a very dry season."
3. Ellie Holcomb "Mine"
Ellie Holcomb drops her new single "Mine," from her forthcoming album, Canyon, which releases on June 25th. Along with this poignant song about a parent's love and the reflection of God's love for His children, a personal music video debuts today featuring Holcomb's three children and husband.
"I wrote this song with Hank Bentley and Mia Fields after a conversation with them about how God is always with us and how the heart of a parent reflects; however imperfectly, the heart of the Father," explains Ellie Holcomb. "He's been with us the whole time before we ever took a breath. God is the perfect father, and when I fail as a parent this is such a sweet reminder for me, that God is still my father as I mother my children, and He's still their perfect heavenly father, holding them and taking such good care of them, even when I parent imperfectly. This song is also special as my husband, Drew, joins me. He would tear up every time he heard this song, and it felt like the most natural thing to ask him to sing with me. His voice sounds incredible, and I hope this will forever be a treasure for our kids to hear both their mom and dad singing this over them."
4. Mike Donehey "All Together"
Tenth Avenue North leader Mike Donehey releases his first Christian radio single as a solo artist today. "All Together" asks what the Church might look like if it embraced even more radical vulnerability and acceptance.
"There is something sacred that happens when addicts get together in a recovery circle. They know they will be met with 100% acceptance, therefore can be totally vulnerable," Mike shares. "'All Together' encourages people not only to take that first step towards vulnerability but also to participate in radical acceptance of those who do."
