Nashville, TN (May 20, 2019)
Celebrating a groundbreaking new era following the return of former members Peter Furler and Phil Joel last year, Christian music supergroup Newsboys has made history once again as United debuts at #1 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart following its May 10 release. The FairTrade Services project also debuts at #20 on The Billboard 200 as the top-selling Christian recording of the week, according to the publication’s May 25 chart.
In addition, the album’s lead single, “Greatness Of Our God”—a triumphant worship anthem bridging the past and present with Furler and Newsboys’ Michael Tait on lead vocals—is currently #9 on Billboard’s Christian AC Monitored chart with a bullet and #12 on Billboard’s Christian Audience chart with a bullet. Penned by Colby Wedgeworth, Bryan Fowler and Ethan Hulse, “Greatness Of Our God” follows in the footsteps of such Newsboys megahits as “He Reigns,” “We Believe” and “God’s Not Dead.”
United is a 10-song collection of compelling praise & worship moments and powerful pop tracks that was produced by Furler and Geoff Duncan and showcases four songs co-penned by Furler.
