Three years after announcing their farewell tour, Tenth Avenue North announced their official return in November 2023 with new members Thomas Ewing and Monty Rivera joining frontman Mike Donehey! Today, the band debuted a new song titled “Invited.”

“Invited is a song about the welcoming heart of God,” Donehey shared in the new music announcement. “When I read scripture, it leaves me with the impression that God has a heart of invitation. Jesus ate with tax collectors, prostitutes, and the Pharisees. It’s like He was saying, whether you’re feeling screwed up or quite religious, everyone is My kind of people.”

In speaking about the heart behind this new song, Mike added, “My parents have displayed the heart of God to me better than anyone else. They are constantly bringing people into their home and making them meals. They ooze hospitality.”

And in acknowledging a sort of full circle moment, Donehey explained how the message of “Invited” echoes that of Tenth Avenue North’s first radio single “Love Is Here” (2008). “Our former guitarist Jeff Owen is who had the idea for the song. Jeff, the new members Thomas Ewing and Monty Rivera, and me then wrote the song together. To me, it’s a beautiful torch pass. We started our band journey with the song Love is Here and we’re beginning the next iteration reminding people what we are all about. We’re still declaring the same thing. The message is simple. Come. Just come.”
