Renowned, Macon, Georgia-based Radiate Music songwriter and powerhouse vocalist JJ Weeks returns after more than a two-year hiatus from releasing new music with the first single, "Graveyard," from his upcoming full-length debut solo album. Available now at digital retail and streaming outlets globally, the song is also the first of several new tracks to release in succession every six weeks leading up to the LP slated for fall 2023.
"Graveyard" was co-written by Weeks, GRAMMY-nominated, two-time Dove Award-winning "Producer of the Year" Ian Eskelin (who also produced the track), five-time Dove Award winner Tony Wood and Dove Award-winning and GRAMMY-nominated Michael Farren. Delivering a passionate vocal performance, Weeks is joined by a chorus of voices on the single, all emphasizing the hope Christians have for the here, now, and beyond.
"The greatest victory that ever happened in humankind's history happened in a graveyard," says Weeks. "That is where our God, Jesus Christ, stood up and defeated death, hell, and the grave.
"I've noticed in my own life that there have been moments where it seems like everything is falling apart," continues Weeks. "It's at those moments when all seems hopeless and desperate that I've seen God show up and do amazing things in my life. That's what this song is all about. You may be facing a situation where you don't understand what in the world is going on, but hang in there because the greatest victories happen in a graveyard."
The new single follows Weeks' acclaimed The Sound Of Freedom EP that features the radio single and CCM Magazine-premiered title track along with "Choices" and the hopeful anthem, "Days Like These."
Singing his new music and fan favorites while on tour, Weeks is currently on his My Porch Tour featuring special guest and labelmate Justin Warren. For all the upcoming tour dates, click here.
