When you’ve achieved success like Mercy Me, there’s not much left to prove. Instead, they decided to have some fun. Along the way, wouldn’t you know that they’d get even better! The band plows through jazzinfluenced songs such as the title track, and Millard’s voice finds a new soulful depth on “Wishful Thinking.” With a lightness that has been absent from some of their more recent work, “The New” reflects a healthier, happier state for the band and for the guys as husbands and fathers. Their finest work to date.
