MercyMe debuts 'Hurry Up And Wait'

Band to premier music & lyric videos during a Facebook Live & YouTube livestream event today at 4 p.m. EST

On the heels of their 48th No. 1 song "Almost Home," which held the top spot on Billboard's AC Indicator, Monitored, National Christian Audience and Mediabase Christian Audience and Christian AC charts for a combined total of 17 weeks, multi-Platinum band MercyMe is unveiling their brand new song, "Hurry Up And Wait," today across all DSP platforms.

“ ‘Hurry Up And Wait' is a new song we started well over a year ago," said lead singer Bart Millard. "We didn’t plan on it taking this long to get out, but it is pretty timely that it's finally ready. It reminds us that ‘those who wait on the Lord will renew their strength.’ I know we can all use a little extra strength these days.”

Alongside the new track, MercyMe will simultaneously premier a music video and lyric video during a Facebook Live and YouTube livestream event today at 4 p.m. EST. 

Following back to back successful spring and fall 2019 “Imagine Nation” tours, MercyMe completed much of their “MercyMe 20/20” tour this spring, which featured Jeremy Camp and David Leonard. All tour dates that were postponed can be found at mercyme.org.

The Grammy-nominated, multiple American Music Award and Dove Award-winning band celebrated two new RIAA certifications late last year commemorating the four-times-Platinum certification of their debut album, “Almost There,” and the Platinum certification of their 2018 single “Even If."

2019 reaped both Grammy and Billboard Music Award nominations for MercyMe, all following the box office-shattering film “I Can Only Imagine,” inspired by frontman Millard’s real-life story behind the beloved MercyMe song.

Currently in the studio, the band plans to release a new full-length project later this year or early 2021.

MercyMe was named Top Christian Artist at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards; was the top winner at the fan-fueled K-LOVE Fan Awards, including a win for Artist of the Year and just received their eighth AMA nod. The group is the 2018 GMA Dove Award Winner for Artist Of The Year, and since their debut in 2001, MercyMe has sold more than 9 million units in CD, single and DVD sales, garnered more than 47 No. 1 multi-format radio singles and four consecutive mainstream radio hits with “I Can Only Imagine,” (No. 4 AC/Top 25 on Top 40/Hot AC).

In 2009, Billboard named MercyMe's "Word Of God Speak" the No. 1 Song of The Decade and the group the No. 1 Artist of the Decade in both the Christian songs and Christian AC songs categories, recognizing them as one of the industry's most notable talents.
