NEw KID ON ThE BLOCK: My inaugural recording
experience with the boys was bliss. Spending my first year
touring and getting to know the guys definitely paid off in
the initial stages of recording! –Michael Tait (lead vocals)
ThEN vS. NOw: With dcTalk the vocal recording
responsibility was split three-ways, so it took a lot of
pressure off. newsboys is a full-time job. There’s one front
man so decisions are made quicker but the load can be
heavier! –M. T.
JESUS FREAK: My main objective was to put the message of
the Gospel—its redeeming power to save, deliver, forgive
and heal—into kicking modern melodies and riffs, into lyrics
that connect and engage listeners of every age, gender and
musical preference. –M. T.
MUSICALLy SPEAKING: The musical tone is electric and energetic with rock, soul and quirkiness. –M. T.
STORy BEhIND ThE SONG: “I’ll Be” is humans realizing that their efforts at succeeding in life apart
from our Creator are clearly futile! But for some reason, we sometimes walk that path only to end
up at the truth: “When all else is sinking sand/You will find Me/I’ll be.” –M. T.
