Jesus Culture artist Chris McClarney is slated to release his second live solo album, Breakthrough, on June 15. The announcement of his new record comes after the release of the project's anthemic lead single and live music video, "Hallelujah For The Cross," which was introduced during the week of Easter.
Breakthrough is the follow-up to McClarney's critically-acclaimed 2015 debut on Capitol CMG and Jesus Culture, Everything And Nothing Less, and was recorded live in Sacramento, Calif., at Jesus Culture Church.
"Breakthrough is a collection of songs I hope people hear to help them overcome obstacles," shares McClarney. "Whatever is keeping them from finding joy and peace, I hope this album helps guide listeners to put their trust in God alone, that hope is in him no matter the circumstance."
"I wanted to write songs that people can sing if they are going through a loss, divorce, a cancer diagnosis," he continues." And I also wanted songs that celebrate how good God is."
The album's title track, along with "Hallelujah For The Cross," are available as instant-gratification downloads with every digital pre-order in a campaign that kicked off Friday. Following the release of the album's title track, "Breakthrough," McClarney also released a new live music video for the song which can be viewed at the end of the article.
McClarney is perhaps best-known for songs such as "My One My All," "Yes And Amen," and the 2008 No. 1 hit "Your Love Never Fails" which has become one of the most popular songs in America's churches, still ranking in the Top 100 at Christian Copyright Licensing International (CCLI), which gathers data on songs sung in churches worldwide on a weekly basis.
