Nashville, TN (May 20, 2019)
Grammy-nominated Christian music singer/songwriter Jeremy Camp returns with a brand new single “Dead Man Walking,” which debuted Friday along with a new music video

“Colossians 2:13-14 speaks of our lives before Christ as being ‘dead.’ There was a time I felt emotionally and spiritually dead, but then God changed me radically,” said Camp. “That is why I’m excited to share ‘Dead Man Walking’–because it’s a song of thankfulness that even though I was once a ‘dead man walking’ I’m now a man ‘walking with God.’”

With 40 #1 singles over his storied career, “Dead Man Walking” is a refreshing first-look into Camp’s next album, due later this year, and is marked by some of his most vulnerable and transparent music to date.

Throughout his 17-year career Jeremy Camp has established himself with landmark accolades including:
• Lifetime consumption of almost 5 million and 325M lifetime streams
• Holds title for most #1s among solo artists on the Christian Airplay chart
• Billboards #2 artist of the Decade in 2010
• 40 #1 radio hits across all formats
• 4 RIAA certified gold albums and 1 gold single
• 1 Grammy nomination, 3 American Music Award nominations & 4 ASCAP Songwriter of the Year Awards
• Jeremy has also authored an autobiography, I Still Believe (2013, Tyndale) and toured the world, sharing his music in more than 36 countries, and his organization, Speaking Louder Ministries, has allowed him to travel to Brazil, Guatemala, Ukraine, Japan and Kyrgyzstan.

Dead Man Walking

Freedom was something I never found
Trying to find six feet underground
Under the weight of all of my sin
Fighting the fight that I couldn’t win
Then You rescued me
Now I can breathe

I was a dead man walking
Until I was a man walking with You
I was a blind man falling
Until I felt the life You’re calling me to
Pulling me out of the darkness
Pulling me out of the lies
Putting the beat in my heart again
I was a dead man walking
Until You loved this dead man walking back to life

I look for the words but cannot explain
A new kind of love ran into my veins
You are the key to all of my chains
To all that I was now I’m not a slave
Then You rescued me
And now I can breathe

I have tasted and I’ve seen the wonders of Your heart
I do not deserve a thing, but that’s just who You are
