Press Release

Leading up to the release of her anticipated new album, Sarah Kroger drops a new song today. Titled "No Filter" (listen here), the song is the debut from “A New Reality,” out May 17 (Integrity Music). 

The GMA Dove Award-nominated singer, songwriter and worship leader is beyond ready to bring "No Filter" to the Church, a song born from her vulnerable faith journey that expresses raw emotion and the courage needed to question and seek God. 

“This song puts the rest of the record into context,” she explains. Also inspired by Psalm 22, “It encapsulates what I’ve been walking through. I hope it allows space for people to bring their questions and not be held captive to fear.”

Penning “No Filter” with her friend Savannah Locke in a mere 30 minutes, it is Kroger's hope that the song offers a lifeline to those wrestling with their faith, and a testament that doubt and faith can coexist – leading to a deeper understanding and experience of God’s mysterious ways.

Her continued vulnerability through her music is a hope to ignite the need for conversation around faith and doubt within the Church, and it is her mission to assure the listeners that their doubts do not disqualify them from pursuing closeness with God. 

With "No Filter" and throughout her upcoming album, Kroger's songs are created to reach the silent strugglers, the closet doubters, and anyone who has felt alone in their spiritual battles.

“I hope people feel encouraged to bring their imperfect, questioning, doubting selves to God,” she shares. “I want people to be reminded of the beauty of his presence in the world. He’s more real than we can comprehend."

A music video also drops today for the single. Be sure to view the stunning video below.



More About Sarah Kroger

Sarah Kroger is a GMA Dove Award-nominated artist, songwriter and worship leader. With her previously released albums “Your Time” (2011), “Hallelujah Is Our Song” (2013), “Bloom” (2019), “Light” (2020) and “London Sessions” (2023), her latest project, “A New Reality,” is out May 17 (Integrity Music). 

With parents involved in worship ministry, Kroger’s love for music was sparked at a young age, but the impact of bullying coupled with her struggle with anxiety and shyness hid her musical talents for years. Everything changed when she met Jesus in an intimate encounter through worship at a youth conference.

“Worship became my language with God,” she explains. “It allowed me to communicate with the Lord in a way I hadn’t experienced before … it opened my heart.” 

Realizing music was a gift she desired to give back to the Lord, she began leading worship around the world, drawing people from a variety of cultures and church backgrounds under the banner of Jesus. With a passion for creating a safe and prayerful space through her music, her focus has always been an authentic portrayal of her relationship with God. 

With “A New Reality,” it is her hope that people will come away knowing that it’s OK to question, to pull on the string and enable the unraveling to happen, knowing there is one who is gently mending the tangled threads back together into a beautiful, reconstructed tapestry. 

Woven with contemplative songs that expose honest vulnerability along with corporate worship songs that express the magnificence of God, the entire collection offers new ways to see suffering, questions and silence as building blocks for a new faith – one that is stronger because of the struggle. Kroger brings listeners into that newness by helping us all ponder the mystery of God, rest in the wonder, and see that questions are a sacred path to a new reality.
