New Tunes at 9 Roundup: MercyMe

April 24th, 2014

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.)


MercyMe has just released their 8th project, “Welcome to the New.”

“Welcome to the New” is the follow-up recording to “The Hurt and the Healer,” a record that debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard 200.


MercyMe, who hail from Texas, was formed in 1994 by singer/songwriter, Bart Millard. After quietly releasing six independent records, MercyMe achieved mainstream crossover success with “I Can Only Imagine,” a song written in memory of Bart’s father. On the strength of that song alone, the companion project, “Almost There,” went on to be certified double-platinum, selling over 2-million copies.


MercyMe’s new project is receiving strong fan support; one MercyMe fan posted: “Listen to it everyday on my way to and from work. It makes me smile, groove, and just feel strong in the spirit.” MercyMe, “Welcome to the New,” available now.
