MercyMe also recently announced the release of their next studio album, inhale (exhale) which will hit April 30, and it is available across all DSPs for preorder now. The project’s fast-rising current radio single “Say I Won’t,” is currently #5 on the Billboard National Christian Airplay chart and #6 on the Mediabase Christian Audience chart, is spinning on a vast majority of Christian radio stations across the country.
The track is a potent declaration of faith and perseverance colored by tragedy. Gary Miracle, a longtime friend that worked with MercyMe for many years, contracted an infection that resulted in having both his arms and legs amputated. His indomitable spirit in the face of such challenges was inspiring. Good Morning America’s third hour, GMA3, will be featuring MercyMe and Miracle in a special segment on April 15th.
