What You Need To Know
NewSong continues their history of faithful ministry in Christian music with the release of their latest album, Just Jesus.
What It Sounds Like
Just Jesus is a mix of pop, worship, and vocal band flare ("Glue"). NewSong faithfully sings the truths of our faith accompanied by impressive vocal arrangements and musicianship ("Down," "Story"). The album features some collaborations with rappers Tedashii ("Already Loved") and Ty Basel on ("Just Jesus"). These features showcase NewSong's ability to bridge the gap across genres and generations in their music and ministry.
"Story" is an inspiring song about trusting God's leadership in our lives. It calls us to willingly following Him, surrendered to the invitation to be a part of His plan. You wrote my story from beginning to end/Nothing surprises You it's part of your plan/You wanna take me where my heart's never been/I hear You calling me to join in/And I say yes
Best Song On The Record
"I Am Christian" wins best song on the record. It's a joyful and anthemic song about who we are in Christ, what it means to follow Him and His faithfulness to us as we walk with Him. It has a catchy hook that will get stuck in your heard and encourage you at the same time.
