NEW YORK (Newsboys Official Website) - Internationally renowned rock band, newsboys, has launched the explosive first single, 'I Am Free,' from its upcoming Inpop Records debut. National
radio networks K-Love and Air 1 immediately added this special live version out of the box. The single will go for official adds on January 20th.
The band added the up-tempo 'I Am Free' to its live show last summer, and it quickly became a fan favorite. The song is a perfect mix of newsboys' signature live rock style wrapped in a memorable worship melody that the crowd can sing along with.
Newsboys frontman Peter Furler says, 'Performing the song continues to be the highlight of our set. From the Sea of Galilee, to Marrakech, Morocco, in front of 15,000 Muslims, in an aircraft hangar in Scotland and here at home in America, the lyrics ring true no matter where we go.'
''I Am Free' is already a proven favorite with fans,' says Rob Poznanski, Inpop Records vice president, marketing/promotion. 'The song has been resonating in churches for several months already, and newsboys' rendition is relevant and timely as any. My prediction is that this song will rank up there with 'It Is You' and 'He Reigns,'' concludes Poznanski.
Newsboys, one of Christian music's longest running, touring rock bands, has amassed total record sales exceeding six million in its two decades together. The band has five gold albums, over 20 No. 1 radio hits and a mantle of Dove Awards and Grammy nominations to its credit.
From the groundbreaking Festival Con Dios tour to the steady stream of headlining festival sellout shows, newsboys continue to satisfy diehard fans and win new ones with its stage charisma and authentic delivery. This winter, newsboys will front the popular Winter Jam tour with Newsong, tobyMac, ZOEgirl and more. The tour kicks off January 13th in Georgia. "
