New Song Feature: "Grave Robber" Crowder

Crowder puts his undeniable stamp on resurrection with new single “Grave Robber.” Inspired by the biblical story of Lazarus — the dead friend Jesus miraculously brought back to life — the hitmaker’s latest original boasts Crowder’s gritty lyricism and signature folk-rock blend that have carried him to the top of the charts time and time again.

“It doesn’t matter what you’re up against in life. It doesn’t matter how bleak it feels, Jesus can conquer anything. If He can conquer death, if the resurrection is for real — which it is — then He’s got you,” Crowder says of the message behind the track. “That’s what this song’s all about… I hope it’s as meaningful to you as it is to me. I love it and can’t wait for you to hear it.”

A K-LOVE First, “Grave Robber” serves as the lead radio single from Crowder’s forthcoming studio album, the highly anticipated follow-up to 2021’s “Milk & Honey,” though he did give us a special project in the interim when he released the holiday sequel, “Milk & Cookies: A Merry Crowder Christmas.”

Backed by a wall of distorted guitars, hard-hitting drums and a subtle Gospel choir, sonically, the innovator calls his latest offering “res-rock,” short for “resurrection rock.” Lyrically, he cleverly equates Jesus to a grave robber as he sings, “Like a thief in the night He snuck in, took my life. I was dead, now I’m alive and singing.”

Leading the 2024 lineup for Winter Jam, the “Good God Almighty” singer will take “Grave Robber” to arenas across the country early next year, sharing the multi-artist bill with Lecrae, CAIN and Katy Nichole, among other acts. Moreover, as was recently announced, next summer Crowder will join TobyMac, Mac Powell, Cochren & Co. and Terrian in Hawaii for the inaugural “K-LOVE Live in Honolulu” one-night-only concert event.
