The latest Christian & mainstream music news, from NZ and around the world! You'll also be hearing a lot of this on the music news on the Late Show with George (and Dan) at 9.10pm weeknights and the new music pulse on Saturdays.
So you know that One Republic song, "Feel Again"?? Aside from being an awesome tune (and on their new album which is meant to be out soon!), there's a great cause behind the song.
Have a look at this video where Ryan Tedder chats about using real heartbeats from kids in Malawi & Guatemala to make the drum loop for the song.
WIth a lineup change and a successful kickstarter run, Hawk Nelson are pretty much ready to get some new stuff out into the world. There's a massive blog post on Jon Steingard's tumblr about their new album.
We're in the final stages of finishing our new record, and I can happily say that the first single is done and is headed to radio and itunes in the coming months! It's looking like the single will hit at the end of the year, and the record will be out at the end of March, or thereabouts.
The first single is called Words, and we recently started debuting it at shows, along with several other new songs. This song really speaks to the heart of what God's been teaching us over the past few months. The words we speak are a powerful testament to who we are and how we influence those around us. We truly have the power to speak life into others, and that's what the tune is all about.
