The ever popular Christian band MercyMe has just released a brand new single "Greater." The song is lifted from their 6X platinum album "Welcome to the New;" a record that peaked at #1 on both iTunes Christian sales and SoundScan chart as well as hitting the Top 5 on Christian radio.
"Welcome to the New" is MercyMe's eighth studio record that follows in the heels of 2012 Billboard Christian no. 1 album "The Hurt and Healer." The album nabbed the highest debut of the week landing at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the Billboard Christian Albums chart. The album peaked at No. 3 on the iTunes® Overall Albums Chart and No. 1 on its Christian Albums Chart.
Working this time with producers David Garcia and Ben Glover (TobyMac, Mandisa), the album is preceded by its lead single "Shake." Not the same song as Neal McCoy's hit of the same titular, "Shake" is a ball of fun that dispels the myth that Christianity is a party pooper. Rather, imbued with a throwback 70s rock n' roll charm, it's so infectious you can't help but sing along, "You gotta shake, shake, shake/Like you're changed, changed, changed/Brand new looks so good on you/So shake like you've been changed."
Now you can listen and watch the official lyric video of "Greater" below:
