Fans given exclusive listen of first new single in 2-plus years
Headlining arena tour kicks off this month
"I just need U." from TobyMac hit all digital music services Friday, marking the first new music from the seven-time Grammy winner since 2015.
TobyMac once again collaborated with Bryan Fowler alongside Finding Favour's Blake NeeSmith. The cover animation video is already trending at No. 17 on YouTube.
"It feels so great to be back in the studio again working passionately on songs that will hopefully meet people right where they are," TobyMac said. " 'I just need U.' is where I land time and again after my futile attempts to handle life on my own. I am a born defector learning every day that the sweetest place and the only right place for me, is turning back and falling into the arms of a loving God."
The multiplatinum-selling artist provided fans an early glimpse of the song with a single release party at Citizen in Downtown Franklin, Tennessee, on Thursday night. Fans celebrated the release of TobyMac's first new single in two-plus years, and were treated to an exclusive meet-and-greet along with a limited edition vinyl 45 of the single.
TobyMac will once again bring his "HITS DEEP Tour" to 29 markets this year, alongside a lineup including Danny Gokey, Mandisa, Ryan Stevenson and Finding Favour. The 2018 "HITS DEEP Tour" is a partnership with K-LOVE, Air1, Awakening Events and Food for the Hungry. Kicking off at Oklahoma City's Chesapeake Energy Arena in late January, the "HITS DEEP Tour" will wrap in mid-March after stops in San Diego, Denver, Seattle, Minneapolis, San Antonio and Birmingham.
