About NewReleaseToday

Our Mission:
NewReleaseToday and its associated brands exist to inspire, inform and encourage people by sharing the art, Gospel message, and ministries of Christian artists and creatives with a growing spirit of excellence.

Our History:
NewReleaseToday--originally known as online in August of 2002 with one goal in mind: to inform Christian music fans of new releases every single week.

Originally developed as an online resource to let people know about album release dates each week, the site grew beyond the confines of its industry-leading Tuesday updates, branching out into radio, daily news updates, live broadcasts and even touring and fan experiences at concerts.

When the music industry shifted from a Tuesday release day in the U.S. to a Friday global release day, NRT shifted to reflect that change and its new focus on daily content for the Christian music fan, rebranding as NewReleaseToday on June 5, 2015--in advance of the July 10, 2015 change.

NRT is dedicated to introducing people to as much Christian music as possible through daily updates as well as sending its growing community an HTML email newsletter every Friday. The site also keeps an up-to-date list of upcoming releases and through online retail partners, also lists the latest pre-order offers.

The NRTeam, an unique online community for NewReleaseToday, was introduced in June 2007 along with a complete site redesign. NRTeam members can connect with each other, post their own blogs, add artist and author profiles, music and book reviews, music videos, song lyrics and more, all while earning NRT Points for FREE prizes and music!

The NRTeam complements a staff team made up of volunteer writers, photographers and other content providers, who hail from every corner the United States and even Canada.

Even as NewReleaseToday has grown into the largest Christian music site online, the energy and focus has stayed the same: sharing with people what's new in Christian music.
