New Tunes at 9 Roundup: Newsong’s “White as Snow”
RADIO FRIEND PHIL – Greetings! It’s time for this week’s New Tunes at 9 Roundup. (New Tunes at 9, one-hour of new and emerging music, weeknights at 9 p.m. on WJTL.) Veteran Christian band Newsong has recorded numerous classics over a 30-year career; some of the most beloved songs include “Arise My Love,” “From This Moment On,” and “Miracles.” And while the aforementioned songs were popular in their day, it was their song from 2001, “The Christmas Shoes,” that may well define their musical legacy. In 2013, Newsong released the project, “Swallow the Ocean” and, available just in time for Christmas, they have a new project, “Swallow the Ocean (Christmas Edition.)” Among the new compositions is “White As Snow,” a track whose proceeds are supporting, in part, Samaritan’s Purse and Operation Christmas Child, whose mission is to bring shoebox gifts—and the Gospel—to millions of children worldwide. Newsong singer/songwriter/keyboardist and cellist Matt Butler talked about recording the new Christmas project, on New Tunes at 9 http://wjtl.com/listen/wjtl-casts/.
