NASHVILLE, Tenn.-Hallelujah For The Cross, the debut hymns collection from Gold-selling, GRAMMY®-nominated Newsboys,
releases today from First Company Management/Capitol Christian
Distribution. Produced by Seth Mosley, the project features the
legendary group’s take on nine classics and one new selection.
Hallelujah For The Cross includes the title-cut and debut
single, which is currently impacting Christian radio around the country.
The album also showcases a new arrangement of Newsboys’ “Where You
Belong” with “Turn Your Eyes On Jesus,” as well as favorite hymns “Jesus
Paid It All”; “Holy, Holy, Holy”; “It Is Well”; and “All Creatures Of
Our God And King,” among others.
“Hymns are important to me,” says Newsboys frontman Michael Tait. “We
picked through songs that went way, way, way back into my past and my
dad’s Baptist church. I love modern worship but I just love that old
stuff because they were written in such desperate and perilous times,
and out of great pain comes great resolve, I think. When I sing them,
they go deeper in ways to me than a lot of things I reach out for when
I’m in that spiritual drought.”
