MERCYME DEBUTS BRAND NEW SONG, “HURRY UP AND WAIT”

Band to Premier Music and Lyric Videos During a Facebook Live and YouTube Livestream Event Today at 4pm EST

Nashville, TN….5/8/20 – On the heels of their 48th #1 song “Almost Home,” which held the top spot on Billboard’s AC Indicator, Monitored, National Christian Audience and Mediabase Christian Audience and Christian AC charts for a combined total of 17 weeks, multi-platinum band MercyMe is unveiling their brand new song, “Hurry Up And Wait,” today across all DSP platforms.

“’Hurry Up And Wait’ is a new song we started well over a year ago,” comments lead singer Bart Millard. “We didn’t plan on it taking this long to get out, but it is pretty timely that it’s finally ready.  It reminds us that those who wait on the Lord will renew their strength. I know we can all use a little extra strength these days.”

Alongside the new track MercyMe will simultaneously premier a music video and lyric video during a Facebook Live and YouTube livestream event today at 4pm EST.

Following back to back successful spring and fall 2019 Imagine Nation Tours, MercyMe completed much of  their MercyMe 20/20 Tour this spring, which featured Jeremy Camp and David Leonard.  All tour dates that were postponed can be found at mercyme.org.

The GRAMMY® nominated, multiple American Music Award and Dove Award winning band celebrated two new RIAA certifications late last year commemorating the 4x Platinum certification of their debut album, Almost There, and the Platinum certfication of their  2018 single “Even If.”

2019 reaped both GRAMMY® and Billboard Music Award nominations for MercyMe, all following the box office shattering film I CAN ONLY IMAGINE inspired by frontman Bart Millard’s real-life story behind the beloved MercyMe song.

Currently in the studio, the band plans to release a new full-length project later this year or early 2021.

About MercyMe:
It continues to be a landmark time for the multi-platinum selling MercyMe. A major motion picture based on the life of frontman Bart Millard who wrote the mega-hit song “I Can Only Imagine” after the loss of his father opened at a remarkable No. 3 at the box office on Mar. 16, 2018 (Lionsgate, Roadside Attractions). Carrying the same name, Millard’s first memoir also released this year followed by the unveiling of I Can Only Imagine – The Very Best Of MercyMe. MercyMe was named Top Christian Artist at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards, was the top winner at the fan-fueled K-LOVE Fan Awards including a win for Artist of the Year and just received their eighth AMA nod. The group is the 2018 GMA Dove Award Winner for Artist Of The Year, and since their debut in 2001, GRAMMY® nominated, multiple American Music Award and Dove Award winners MercyMe have sold more than 9 million units in CD, single and DVD sales, garnered more than 47 No. 1 multi-format radio singles and four consecutive mainstream radio hits with “I Can Only Imagine,” (No. 4 AC/Top 25 on Top 40/Hot AC). MercyMe made history in 2014 as “I Can Only Imagine” surpassed 2 million digital downloads, making it the first song in Christian music to go platinum and double-platinum in the digital domain. The album containing the hit, Almost There, recently received 4x platinum certification from the RIAA. In 2009, Billboard named MercyMe’s “Word Of God Speak” the No. 1 Song of The Decade and the group the No. 1 Artist of the Decade in both the Christian Songs and Christian AC Songs categories, recognizing them as one of the industry’s most notable talents. They have sold out venues throughout the US and Canada, including Radio City Music Hall, and have appeared on the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, The Today Show, CBS This Morning, FOX New Channel’s FOX & Friends, CNN, ABC News and in the pages of Entertainment Weekly, The New York Times, USA Today and more. MercyMe’s eighth studio album, the RIAA Certified Gold Welcome To The New, garnered two GRAMMY® nods and four radio hits. LIFER, their latest chart-topping, GMA Dove Award winning and GRAMMY® nominated album, includes the RIAA certified platinum, GRAMMY® nominated smash hit “Even If” which dominated the Billboard and Mediabase radio charts with a 19-week streak at No. 1.
