Happy New Release Tuesday!

Check out all these fabulous releases of the day, and Happy New Release Tuesday!

Thousand Foot Krutch: The End Is Where We Begin
In what was probably Christian music fans' most anticipated album of 2012, this Canadian rock band delivers their very first independent project! This fifteen-track album is already #7 on iTunes rock charts, and was the #1 pre-ordered album on Amazon.com. Through this awesome rock album The End is Where We Begin, the band encourages their listeners to make a move and refuse to be complacent. The singles off this record include "Let the Sparks Fly" and "Be Somebody," as the band returns to their original roots.

Moriah Peters: I Choose Jesus
This is the 19-year-old's debut project with Reunion Records. If you're a fan of Veggietales, you will recognize her beautiful vocals, as Moriah performed the vocals of Vanna Banana in the Princess and the Popstar video! With I Choose Jesus, Moriah tackles the issues of insecurity and instability that teens in this country face every day, reminding them that we can choose Jesus. She encourages the listener to take it a step further and be audacious for our God who gave His life for us. "I Choose Jesus," currently one of the most added songs at Christian radio, is the slowest track off the record, but fans of Francesca Battistelli and Jamie Grace will definitely enjoy her infectious pop!

Big Daddy Weave: Love Come to Life
Love Come to Life is this beloved worship band's ninth studio album. You will probably recognize their singles, "Fields of Grace," "Audience of One," and more. Through this wonderful album, the band encourages their listeners to contemplate on the goodness of God in our life. However, the album ranges from that to a country-flavored salvation call to the fun rocker "Give My Life Away" speaking of reckless abandon. At moments, the album sounds very comparable to Newsboys or dcTalk with upbeat rock/worship anthems. It may be a bit more contemporary than previous Big Daddy Weave albums, but it surely is fantastic!

Deluge: Swell
This worship band from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, is releasing their third Integrity Records project today! Swell speaks of the river of life that springs up in us into everlasting life. This album is very rich, as certain of the tracks are deeply worshipful and strong, while others are freeing and very energetic. Especially a highlight is the wonderful "He Rose," a very contemplative track of the resurrection of Christ, and "Coming On the Clouds," a 90s-sounding track speaking of that glorious day when Jesus returns to take us home. It even features a rap for the bridge!

John Tesh: Big Band
Did I mention that I love big band? It's not something that I hear very often, but if you are a fan of Denver and the Mile High Orchestra, you will love John Tesh's brand new album Big Band out today. Also, if you enjoy sweet love songs, there is even more reason for you to check out this project!

Jaime Jamgochian: Everything You Are (Single)
You know those times when we affirm that we know that God is good and always in control, but it sounds more like useless repetition than it does a solid belief in our heart? That's what Jaime Jamgochian addresses in her new radio single "Everything You Are," out on iTunes today! It's been over three years since we've had a new album from Jaime, so it is wonderful to hear new music from her. I am definitely looking forward to a new CD from her!
