Sometimes it takes tragedy in our lives to discover the true blessing. That’s the lesson Mac Powell is sharing on his fresh track, “New Creation.” The upbeat pop single finds the singer reflecting on the fact that he thought he knew God, but he really only knew Him after experiencing hardship. He’s come to realize that every difficulty is a chance to know the Lord on a deeper level and to become better, or perhaps, someone new altogether.
Powell wrote the song in the midst of pandemic uncertainty and the touring shutdown, choosing to lean on the truth of 2 Corinthians 5:17: “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
“I pray that my song, ‘New Creation,’ reminds you that through everything in life, God gives us blessings, support and hope,” Powell says of the track he penned with Hank Bentley and Jeff Pardo.
“New Creation” is the former Third Day frontman’s second solo single to launch at Christian radio, following the country revival-tinged “River of Life.” His latest hit to climb the charts also serves at the title-cut of his solo Christian debut, which dropped last October. He’ll release a deluxe edition of New Creation, featuring two new selections, Aug. 12, 2022.
