When a musician is teasing a new song, it’s usually not about the actual album itself. Instead, they’re usually hinting at its release in some way, like teasers in social media. For instance, the latest video from East Tennessee-based singer-songwriter Chase McGill reveals that he wrote a song in honor of the late Chase Wallen. Written by the singer-songwriter and co-writers, the song focuses on the boy who is chasing whiskey, women, and other things.
The hymnic portions of the Revelation are rehearsed in this way. In Revelation 5:9-10, for example, we see that Jesus was crucified. Likewise, we see a similar image in Revelation 5:9.10-11. The hymnic portions of Revelation are dedicated to the remembrance of God’s work of redemption. And in Revelation 19:6-7, Harland describes how God’s people will sing the new song.
In addition to their original album, NewSong also recorded three studio albums. In 1982, they signed with Covenant Records and later on with Canaan Records, a branch of Word Records. After three weeks, the song became the top radio hit of the Billboard chart. The song was so popular that Clive Calder closed down the Benson label. Afterwards, NewSong stayed with Zomba Music and Reunion. The group then released a studio Christmas album, “The Christmas Shoes”, which featured original Christmas songs and an original version of the song “O Holy Night”.
“New Song” is a song by Howard Jones. It was released in September 1983 on the UK Singles Chart and spent 20 weeks in the Top 75. The A-side label of the album featured the song lyrics in a spiral. The B-side has credits, as well. The song was also released in the US in early 1984 and peaked at #27 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Originally, the song was part of the artist’s debut album, Human’s Lib.
The Chilean New Song had its heyday in the late 1990s, and David Gilmour’s response to the war in Ukraine inspired the lyrics. The video also features footage from the Ukraine. Despite its political origins, the video still has plenty of emotion. The message it sends is that it has the power to transform politics. A new song can inspire change and unite a people. And this time, Pink Floyd is back with a new one!
