“This record is a culmination of years of my own joy, sorrow, peace, worry, doubt and, ultimately, the thread of hope that has brought me to where I am now," said Michael Cochren of Cochren & Co. "It’s a lot of my story, but it’s things we all experience – and the hope Jesus brings to all of it.”
The anticipated 13-song project features Cochren & Co.'s back-to-back Top 10 Billboard Christian Airplay radio singles, “Church (Take Me Back)” and “One Day”; the current Top 10 Billboard AC single, "Who Can," plus the album's powerful title track, which was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Christopher Stevens. "Don't Lose Hope," which was written by Cochren, continues to make an impact – tonight the song will be heard on the popular long-running CBS series "MacGyver."
This week, Cochren & Co.'s debut album and songs have been included in a plethora of top playlists across the digital platforms including: Amazon Music's Divine Sound and Fresh Christian Playlist, Pandora's New Christian Music Now; Spotify's Top Christian, New Music Friday Christian and Top Christian Contemporary Playlists; Apple Music's Christian, Hot Tracks, Today's Christian, Rise Up, Risers and Every 1 Playlists; YouTube's Christian Hits, Christian Goes Pop and Christian Music on the Rise Playlists.
Last night, the music video for the new song, "For My Good," premiered on YouTube. The song was co-written with producer Kyle Williams (We Are Messengers) while the music video was directed by Fuhs Video (Imagine Dragons).
Along with Stevens and Williams, other producers on “Don't Lose Hope” are Bryan Fowler (TobyMac), Marshall Altman (Natasha Bedingfield), Jeff Pardo (Rhett Walker), Micah Kuiper (Ryan Stevenson) and Josh Bronleewe.
Cochren & Co. has made quite a name for himself since he came onto the scene just two years ago. He was nominated for Best New Artist for the GMA Dove Awards in 2020 and is just one of two new artists to have two back-to-back Billboard Christian Airplay Top 10 radio singles along with that nomination.
Last fall, Cochren & Co. was part of TobyMac's “Drive-In Theatre Tour” and will continue touring this spring on Toby’s “Hits Deep Tour,” kicking off in February with Tauren Wells, We Are Messengers, Unspoken and Terrian. That will be followed by a co-headlining tour with Rhett Walker. Visit Cochren’s tour page for the latest information.
