  • NRT Partners With Virtual Music Tours
    on March 19, 2020 at 1:00 am

    Today, NewReleaseToday joined forces with Visible Music College and Madison Line Records to launch Virtual Music Tour, an online platform that will connect artists and bands with audiences worldwide for online concerts and events. The idea was formed from multiple questions that needed answers. In light of the current environment, how can a tour go online? How do artists and creatives save money as the market keeps changing? How do artists find a way to tour a record while keeping a family unit intact? How can audiences that are physically challenged, chronically ill, socially anxious and fearful still connect with their favorite artists and the power of live music? How can bands engage with young families and those who cannot afford a night out? How do we bring worship to the lonely and disenfranchised? Music is important. Music is most needed right now! We have[...]

    NASHVILLE, Tenn.--"Holy (Song of the Ages)," the new anthem from Nashville-based The Belonging Co, will be available March 27. Inspired by John's vision of worship around the throne of God in Revelation 4, the song was recorded live at The Belonging Co's downtown Nashville campus and features their worship pastor, Andrew Holt. Co-penned by Holt, "Holy (Song of the Ages)" was birthed during a spontaneous moment of corporate worship as he began singing lyrics that would ultimately comprise the song's bridge. The church's lead pastor Henry Seeley and worship leader/songwriter Daniella Mason later joined Holt to complete the track. "It felt like God moving in that moment," Holt recalls of the song's debut at The Belonging Co.
