Grammy-winning and multiple platinum-selling band Casting Crowns today released their latest studio album, Only Jesus, via Provident Label Group. With the new twelve-track album, the band hopes to take the spotlight off of themselves and point instead to Jesus, the "only name to remember."

Celebrating the release of Only Jesus, Casting Crowns will be premiering the music video for the album's title track using video streaming website YouTube's new premiere feature. Fans will be invited into an interactive experience where they will be able to watch the video together while Casting Crowns facilitates a live chat.

Immediately following the viewing, the band will transition to a YouTube Live video where they will answer questions from fans and perform an acoustic version of "Only Jesus." The video will premiere at 3 p.m. ET, 2 p.m. CT; to watch the video click here.

Discussing the band's latest project, Casting Crowns frontman Mark Hall says they are taking great pains to shift the focus off of the band, off of himself, and solely onto the one of whom they sing, Jesus.

"There's much talk these days about legacy," shares Hall about the new album. "How do we want to be remembered?"

"The more I think about it the more I'm reminded that anything in me that's worth remembering are the things that Jesus has worked on, and is still working on in me," he says. "On my own I have nothing to offer the world, but Jesus does - so don't mind me. Jesus is the only name to remember."

The new record features the single, "Only Jesus," which has become one of the fastest-charting songs of 2018 and already a Top 10 hit. The song marks the group's 26th Top 10 song on the Hot Christian Songs chart, the most by any group.

Casting Crowns recently announced their 37-city "Only Jesus Tour" kicking off on Feb. 21, 2019. They are also currently preparing to hit the road on the highly-anticipated "It's Finally Christmas" tour together with Hannah Kerr, beginning on Nov. 29 in Portland, Ore., and concluding on Dec. 6 in San Diego, Calif.

Only Jesus can be streamed or purchased everywhere now, with links to many digital music platforms and retailers available here.
