Christian Music News, New Christian Music News In celebration of the upcoming global movie release, MercyMe is unveiling I Can Only Imagine -- The Very Best of MercyMe, a 13 piece collection of the band's most beloved songs alongside a special version of the monumental hit "I Can Only Imagine" made just for the movie called "I Can Only Imagine (The Movie Session)."

"We're so excited to get to share this new version of 'I Can Only Imagine' with everyone. The song has meant a lot to me over the years, and it really came out of a difficult season," shares MercyMe's Bart Millard. "It brought me a lot of hope, but there has always been something very melancholy about the song in the way that it was recorded before. Getting to do it over this time around, I really felt like it would be awesome to shape in a more celebratory tone, where it conveys us rejoicing in the fact that we don't have to imagine much longer. It has this cinematic and whimsical feel about it, and it really fits with how I see the song today differently than when I first wrote it." Carefully selected by the band, the impressive track listing for this album includes their biggest hits such as "Flawless," "Word Of God Speak," "God With Us" plus the original version of "I Can Only Imagine."
 
The official music video was just released for the much-anticipated new movie, "I Can Only Imagine," a true story based on the life of MercyMe lead singer, Bart Millard who wrote the mega-hit song "I Can Only Imagine" after the loss of his father to cancer. "I Can Only Imagine" is a gripping reminder of the power of forgiveness and beautifully illustrates that no one is ever too far from second chances. In conjunction with the new film, MercyMe has recorded "I Can Only Imagine (The Movie Session)." The new track is available for download and streaming today alongside a digital preorder for the upcoming album. 
 


"I Can Only Imagine (The Movie Session)" is available today on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon and the Official Movie Site. Watch the vertical music video on Spotify here.

"Grace Got You" Feat. John Reuben will be released to radio nationwide on Mar. 2. This marks the second single to impact radio from the multi-platinum selling band's latest GRAMMY® nominated, chart-topping album Lifer, preceded by "Even If" which had an unprecedented 19 week run at No. 1. "'Grace Got You' is just a song that makes me smile," adds Millard. "The whole idea that once you realize God's grace has you no matter what comes your way, you can live your life as if you've already read the last page of the book and know how the whole thing turns out. Our eternity is set! On your worst day, Christ is OK with you. He adores you. He's pleased with you. How is that possible? No clue, but it is. That's the most amazing news of all!" Stream or download "Grace Got You" today on Apple Music, iTunes, Spotify and Amazon Music.

Kicking off this month, The "MercyMe Live" Tour will unite the band with Tenth Avenue North alongside Tim Timmons for a three month stretch. The line-up will visit over 20 markets including Dallas, Nashville, Minneapolis, Atlanta and more. For the latest information on MercyMe, visit www.MercyMe.org
