The Hurt & The Healer The (CD)MercyMe
With the most-added Billboard Christian AC (Adult Contemporary) single during the week of its release to radio as well as the No. 2 Christian song on iTunes, the buzz for MercyMe's release, The Hurt and The Healer, is rapidly escalating.
The hurt is easy to see. It's all around us. Every day. Fortunately, so is the healing, says MercyMe. This album is a celebration of that moment when these two worlds collide, the deep need for healing and the God who provides it. Produced by Brown Bannister and Dan Muckula, The Hurt & The Healer features signature MercyMe anthems, engaging pop songs and worshipful and intimate moments. With an uninterrupted string of 23 #1 career singles, the award-winning and multi-platinum selling band sure seems to have another hit on their hands with the title track garnering a whopping 61 adds on radio and digital platforms.
For whatever reason, God has called us to help people through the healing process, so as we began this project, we thought, do we even try to fight it, this is kind of who we are, said Bart Millard recalling songs like their worldwide hits I Can Only Imagine, Homesick, Bring the Rain, Finally Home and more. The idea is to create an album to help bring healing to people, but not just healing; even in the midst of life's worst moments, there's this irony of feeling more alive than any time before; that moment when we embrace our kids a little tighter and we re-evaluate what's important in life, Millard continues. The whole album revolves around this common theme, but it's not all really.
