Summer 2016 Christian Music Playlist
Written by Christi Given | August 25, 2016
There are so many Christian artists releasing new music right now, such as Switchfoot with the album Where the Light Shines Through; Britt Nicole with her new single, “Through Your Eyes”; Leeland’s new CD release with Bethel Music; and Housefire’s new album, which was released in mid-August. Check out the new playlist that I made that you NEED to share with your friends. Happy listening!
1. Hollyn, “Alone” (feat. TRU): A new artist on TobyMac’s label and artist roster, Hollyn may be small, but she has some mighty vocals and lyrics. Check out her empowering song “Alone.” Love this!
2. Switchfoot, “The Day I Found God”: As many of you know, Switchfoot has released a new album called Where the Light Shines Through.
3. Britt Nicole, “Through Your Eyes”: Britt Nicole has been busy with her family and raising two kids, but her new single was just released on iTunes on July 29! So exciting!
4. Leeland, “Lion and the Lamb”: This band is one of my favorite worship groups, and they just released their latest project, entitled Invisible. I love their lyrics and their unique tracks. Check out their new album released through the Bethel Music label.
5. Housefires, “Your Love Is Alive”: The Housefires band released a new album on August 12, 2016, and it has songs such as “Great Is the Lord,” “Seek First,” “Fill Me With the Fullness” and more! You can buy it on iTunes here.
6. Hillsong Young & Free, “Only Wanna Sing”: I love the lyrics “This is no performance, Lord I pray it’s worship…I only wanna sing, if I sing with everything, if I sing for you, my King…I can’t imagine why I would do this all for hype, ‘cuz it’s all to lift you high…whoa oh….” Watch the live music video here.
7. Tenth Avenue North, “Afraid”: I love this new song that Tenth Avenue North released in July. Check it out!
8. Hillsong United, Empires Live “Of Dirt and Grace”: Hillsong United was recently at the Katzrin synagogue, where they filmed this live project of Empires, their most recent album, and they retitled it “Of Dirt and Grace.” Watch the live video here.
9. Hillsong Worship, “Transfiguration”: Hillsong, as you may know, has three main worship bands that travel globally and record professional albums. This Hillsong Worship song is from Open Heaven (River Wild). I pray it blesses you deeply.
10. Switchfoot, “I Won’t Let You Go”: Yes, I had to have two songs from Switchfoot’s new album, simply because they’re one of my favorite bands. Listen to the lyrics…so powerful!
