5 New Album Releases (Today!) That You Need to Hear

Check out all these great new albums that release today. All are available on iTunes or on Spotify (free streaming application – awesome!).

1.) Gungor – Ghosts Upon The Earth

For Fans of: Glen Hansard, John Mark McMillan, David Crowder Band, Jonsi, Mute Math, Imogen Heap

First impression: This is a very “indie-hipster” type album. If you are looking for worship music that will be easy to replicate for congregational use, this probably isn’t for you. However, if you are looking for a Christian album that is willing to take risks and explore diversity of sound and topic, you will fall in love with the creativity of Gungor. Here is a previous review of their first album, Beautiful Things.

2.) NeedToBreathe – The Reckoning

For Fans of: Mat Kearney, Gungor, John Mark McMillan

First Impression: Does anyone have a cooler voice than Bear Rinehart? I mean, c’mon. The dude’s name is Bear. Of course my first impression is I love it. I think you will too.


3. Jeremy Riddle – Furious










For Fans of: Phil Wickham, Chris Tomlin

Since none of his songs are on YouTube, here is his most popular single, “Sweetly Broken.”


4. Leeland – The Great Awakening

For Fans of: Coldplay, Brandon Heath, Matt Maher, beautiful harmonies 🙂


5.) Matt Maher – The Love In Between

For Fans of: Jeremy Camp, Chris Tomlin, Mercy Me, Casting Crowns


Bonus Artist: Jamie Grace

Also, you may want to check out Toby Mac’s latest signing in Jamie Grace. This sounds much more like “Top 40 Radio” does right now. No doubt she’s a talented 19-year old !

Check out her video:


Bonus Artist #2: Thrice – for all you rock fans. “In Exile” is a cool song.
