“Greatness Of Our God,” the debut single from Christian music supergoup Newsboys United, bows today from FairTrade Services. Penned by Colby Wedgeworth, Bryan Fowler and Ethan Hulse, and co-produced by Peter Furler and Geoff Duncan, the song is hitting Christian radio formats around the country this week and is now available to stream/buy.
The history-making single from the Newsboys United lineup—which features current members Michael Tait, Duncan Phillips, Jeff Frankenstein and Jody Davis alongside former members Peter Furler and Phil Joel—has already been added to such key playlists as Spotify's Top Contemporary Christian, Apple Music’s The A-List: Christian and Amazon's Fresh Christian.
A musical celebration joining the band’s past and present, “Greatness Of Our God” showcases Tait and Furler on lead vocals and is the first single from the supergroup’s forthcoming FairTrade Services full-length debut. The triumphant worship anthem follows in the footsteps of such Newsboys megahits as “He Reigns,” “We Believe” and “God’s Not Dead.”
“Peter and I have been dear friends for decades, so it’s an incredible blessing to make music together now,” said Tait. “We love the message of 'Greatness Of Our God,’ and the song is even more meaningful for us because together we are proclaiming our gratitude to the Creator of the universe.”
“We had such a brilliant time recording this song,’ adds Furler. “I think we all knew we were onto something special during the process, so we’re excited for ‘Greatness Of Our God’ to be the first official Newsboys United single.“
Since welcoming Furler and Joel back to the group last year, Newsboys United have played more than 100 shows and are currently headlining the 43-city Winter Jam Tour Spectacular, Christian music’s largest annual tour. In addition, Newsboys United will join forces with multi-Platinum, multi-GRAMMY-winning singer/songwriter Michael W. Smith for this spring’s “Surrounded & United: The Tour.” The 10-city outing will be a night of worship featuring hits spanning both artists’ unparalleled careers.
Among the most influential bands in Christian music history, GRAMMY-nominated, Platinum-selling Newsboys have sold more than 10 million units, amassed eight Gold certifications, 33 #1 radio hits, four GRAMMY nominations, two American Music Award nominations and multiple Dove Awards. Since their formation in Australia three decades ago, Newsboys have released 23 recordings and their signature songs include “We Believe,” “He Reigns,” “Miracles,” “Born Again” and the Platinum-certified mega hit, “God’s Not Dead.” The latter inspired one of the most popular Christian film franchises of all time.
