Praise and worship group Hillsong Worship has released its new single, “What a Beautiful Name,” to Soft AC/Inspo radio. With lead vocals from Brooke Fraser-Ligertwood, this worship anthem is one of Hillsong’s most anointed carrier singles in recent memory.
Contemporary Christian pop/rock band 7eventh Time Down has released “Lean On” as the latest single off its groundbreaking album, “God is On the Move.” After several uptempo tracks, including the Top 3 title track, the band is slowing things down with this radio-friendly Christian rock ballad.
Contemporary Christian superstar Chris Tomlin has released “Impossible Things,” off his new album, “Never Lose Sight.” The song features fellow Christian singer Danny Gokey, and these two gentlemen have crafted an irresistible pop song that is absolutely delightful in every way.
Dove-nominated gospel singer Todd Dulaney has released “Victory Belongs to Jesus” as the new single from his new album, “A Worshipper’s Heart.” Easily singable, with an unforgettable melody and that incredible set of backup vocalists, “Victory Belongs to Jesus” is a Top 10 hit waiting to happen. Absolutely gorgeous.
Last year, gospel superstar Tasha Cobbs released “Put a Praise on It” from her worship recording, “One Place Live.” Why am I featuring this only now? Well, admittedly, I don’t cover gospel quite the way I do Contemporary Christian AC, and so, I missed out on this one, but having said that, it’s never too late to stumble into an anointed worship song, and this one is 100% Spirit-filled.
Contemporary Christian pop/rock group Stars Go Dim has followed up its Top 10 hit, “You Are Loved,” with the second single off their self-titled major-label debut. Titled Walking Like Giants, this single is every bit as catchy as its predecessor, if not more so.
Contemporary Christian singer Francesca Battistelli has release “Giants Fall,” an inspiring mid-tempo praise party jam that reminds us that with God, anything is possible. Immediately catchy and delightfully easy to sing–the mark of great songs–“Giants Fall” also boasts of a melody that will not quit.
Contemporary Christian singer Natalie Grant has released “King of the World,” the third single off the Grammy Award-nominated artist’s latest album, “Be One.” It’s a sobering reminder to let God be God and rule over our lives because He has the best in mind for us.
Casting Crowns has released “One Step Away” from their new release, “The Very Next Thing.” The band is at its best at making introspective ballads and worship anthems, so when they release uptempo tracks–like the underappreciated yet delicious praise party jam that was “Thrive”–it’s a real treat for their fans and for Contemporary Christian music as a whole.
