Press Release

Critically acclaimed Centricity Music singer / songwriter Jason Gray releases “Awestruck (On My Way Home)” today at digital and streaming outlets globally from The Fuel Music via https://slinky.to/AwestruckJG. The song is the eighth single from the multi-artist “A New Heaven And A New Earth” project that celebrates the beauty of God's creation and calls believers to be faithful stewards of the world. The full-length project is slated to premiere in summer, 2024.

Written by Gray along with five-time Grammy-nominated, eight-time GMA Dove Award recipient and Platinum-selling Brandon Heath and hit-making songwriter and producer Kyle Williams (We Are Messengers, TobyMac), who also produced the song, “Awestruck” includes vocals by these songwriters as well as Evelyn Cormier.

“God often meets with me in the beauty of creation. Whether I stand before the ocean, go hiking in the Rockies or enjoy the colors of a sunset, the grandeur of natural beauty somehow makes me feel small and loved at the same time. Worship spills out of me and love is all I know when I’m awestruck!” exclaims Gray, quoting part of the song’s chorus: “When beauty pulls me under // Arrested by the wonder, I get stuck // Where forever is a moment // And love is all I know when I’m awestruck.”

In addition to “Awestruck,” “A New Heaven And A New Earth” tracks already released include: Grammy-nominated, Dove Award-winning Building 429 lead vocalist Jason Roy’s “It’s All Yours”; iconic singer/songwriter Phil Joel’s “Arms Around The World”; recording artist, actress and producer MŌRIAH’s “You Mean The World”; Dove Awards-winning, No. 1 Billboard-charting, Stellar Award-nominated Aaron Cole’s “Together”; Roy, Joel and Don Chaffer’s “Our Common Home”; chart-topping recording artist and songwriter Micah Tyler’s “So Will I”; and husband and wife duo, Don and Lori Chaffer of Waterdeep’s “Into the Unseen.”

Each of these well-known Christian artists felt led to participate, responding to the call to write and record a song on taking care of creation. The songs collectively cover rock, pop, hip-hop, R&B, indie, folk/Americana and more musical genres.

Along with the celebrated artists pouring into the multi-artist “A New Heaven And A New Earth” project slated to premiere this summer, their children are conversant participants not only singing and playing instruments on select songs on the recording and at live performances, but also producing the project’s video content, social media posts and website.
