Gotee Records' Cochren & Co. has released their sophomore album, “Running Home.” This album follows the acclaimed debut project, “Don't Lose Hope” (2021), which produced the hit songs "Church (Take Me Back)" and "One Day."

A press release said, “Helmed by singer/songwriter and worship leader Michael Cochren and joined by his wife, Leah, Cochren & Co. is back with a strong 10-song project that features hope-filled lyrics and timeless melodies.” Click here to listen to “Running Home.”

"The debut album was a process of exploring all of my musical influences and life experiences and finding out how that melting pot could create a sound unique," Cochren said. "It was kind of like figuring out how to build a ship, and how to push it off the shore and over the waves. Now with this sophomore album, I feel like we were on the open sea with a clear heading. I knew where I wanted to take this album. I really wanted the songwriting on this album to be personal, to openly share stories and struggles in a way that people can feel a connection to, and ultimately feel like there’s peace available in the highs and lows,"

Cochren & Co.’s sophomore project features the 2022 Top 15 Billboard Christian airplay and AC radio single, “Thank God For Sunday Morning,” which has amassed over 10 million streams in less than a year, and was listed as one of K-LOVE’s 22 Songs that Defined 2022. The title track and debut radio single from the project is already being played on 40 stations, including national networks SiriusXM’s “The Message” and starting today on K-LOVE. The song is also the No. 1 song on Amazon Music’s “DivineSound,” which includes Cochren as the featured artist.

Other songs on the album “Be There For You” are included on Spotify’s “Top Christian & Gospel” playlist, where Cochren is this week’s featured artist; and “The Final Say (feat. Josh Baldwin)” on Apple Music’s “New in Christian” playlist. 

Cochren & Co. is back again this year on the “TobyMac Hits Deep Tour” that features Crowder, Tasha Layton, Jon Reddick and Terrian. Click here for tour dates and tickets.
