Hawk Nelson Release New Single "A Million Miles Away" to Radio, Watch Behind the Scenes Story Here (VIDEO)
Hawk Nelson have released their new single "A Million Miles Away" from their 2013 released album Made (Fair Trade Services). The popular pop/rock band also released a 'behind the story' video sharing about their new single (watch above).
"'A Million Miles Away' is more than just a fun pop song that we enjoy playing live," shares front man Jon Steingard. "It's all about the freedom we find in salvation. So much about salvation is leaving the past, leaving who you were, and entering into a new way of life walking with Jesus. When we accept Jesus into our hearts, we are freed from our past, but sometimes it doesn't feel that way. Sometimes it feels like we're dragging all that guilt and shame along with us. This song is all about accepting that it's in the past, and watching all that old stuff fade into the distance."
Recently, the band was honored with a SESAC award for their No. 1 song "Words," a Billboard's Christian Hot AC/CHR Top 10 single for 22 weeks. Today, Hawk Nelson is releasing their newest single from Made, "A Million Miles Away" to radio.
Hawk Nelson released Made and it rose to No. 2 on the iTunes Christian & Gospel chart as well as in the Top 100 overall albums. This album featured the new Hawk Nelson front man with longtime band guitarist Jon Steingard transitioning into the role. The band has been introducing the new line-up and songs including their radio singles "Words," "Faithful," and the new radio single "A Million Miles Away" over the last year.
