What You Need To Know
Micah Tyler is a talented singer/songwriter from Buna, Texas. Before becoming a full time musician, Micah was a youth pastor, and also ran a food truck. He became hugely popular for his hilarious video called "Millennials," and for his hit song "Different" that released as the title track to his 2016 EP. Micah is known for his unique sound and his compelling lyrics that are in all of his songs. New Today is Micah's third full-length album, which features his newest radio single "AMEN."
What it Sounds Like New Today is such a fun and uplifting album! From "Welcome To The Family" to "Love Lifted Me Up," these songs are upbeat, and are ones that the whole family will love. Micah has always brought fresh pop songs to the table and this album is no different. I love the various sounds featured on this album, like the acoustic guitar playing on "By Name" to the choir on "Walking Free." New Today is an extremely impressive album.
There's a consistent theme throughout the album about what God has done for us. God has freed us from our sins like Micah sings about in "What Mercy Did For Me," He fights for us ("My God Fights For Me"), He gives us hope ("Life Up Ahead"), and He gives us new mercies every day ("New Today"). I've never listened to an album before like this one that brings out so many biblical principles in every single song. If you're needing a reminder of who God is and how much He loves you, I highly suggest this album. I'm certain that there's a song on this album that will encourage you and will help you through whatever battle you're facing right now.
Best Song on the Record
The best song on the record would have to be "My God Fights For Me." Micah is joined by Austin French and Nickie Conley. Their three voices on this album are absolutely incredible. The song goes through three stories in the Bible that all show how God fights for us even in seemingly impossible situations. "He's my shield/He's my sword/The victory is the Lord's"
I love this new album from Micah Tyler, and I'm sure it will be listened to for years to come. It's exciting to see how far Micah has come just since his last full-length album, and I can't wait to hear more new music from him! You can listen to his new album on April 24th on Spotify and Apple Music.
