The two parties reunite for their 20th project together
Capitol CMG and multi-platinum supergroup Newsboys are pleased to announce the newly minted partnership that reunites the two parties. Over the past three decades they have released 20 projects through various iterations of CMG labels. Newsboys debut single “Magnetic,” from the forthcoming full-length project slated for September 2021, is available across all digital platforms now.
“We are honored to partner with Newsboys and our entire team is excited to support their vision and music in this next season,” share Capitol CMG Co-Presidents Hudson Plachy and Brad O’Donnell. “We have an incredible history of success with Newsboys and couldn’t be more excited to welcome them back to Capitol CMG.”
“Newsboys have a long and storied history with Capitol CMG, and the band couldn’t be more excited to enter this new season together,” adds Newsboys manager Wesley Campbell. “The new music the lads have been working on is full of energy and determination, and we look forward to sharing it with the world through this synergistic partnership.”
From the first releases with Star Song and Sparrow to Inpop, the partnership with CMG is steeped in milestones and award-winning music, sold out concerts on a global scale and millions of records sold.
Newsboys are one of the biggest bands in Christian music history, having sold more than 10 million units across 23 recordings and garnering boundless accolades, including one RIAA platinum certification and eight gold certifications, 33 No. 1 radio hits, four GRAMMY nominations, two American Music Award nominations and multiple Dove Awards.
With signature songs like “We Believe,” “Born Again” and the unstoppable mega hit “God’s Not Dead” — which birthed a film franchise of the same name — Newsboys have continued to collect career-defining accolades at full speed ahead. For over three decades, the band has toured extensively throughout the world to present their unparalleled high-energy shows, from their formation in Australia to their current residence in the United States, and everywhere between.
This year, members Michael Tait, Duncan Phillips, Jeff Frankenstein and Jody Davis return to the marketplace with “Magnetic,” an up-tempo pop song about the consistent love of God.
