Follow, the latest release from beloved singer/songwriter Mark Schultz is available today. This is the first full project from the beloved artist in six years and it’s evident that music fans have been waiting for this music. The release rapidly climbed the iTunes Christian & Gospel albums chart, spending the day in the Top 10 of releases. Get it here.
Early praise of the project has begun, with Hallels.com saying “Mark Schultz is to contemporary Christian music (CCM) what Elton John and Billy Joel are to pop music. Schultz has an effortless way of incorporating the piano into his pop-centric songs that the piano becomes a dueting “voice.” As a result, you can always count on Schultz’s brilliant arpeggios to bring out emotions and nuances often not communicated by the human voice. Over time, Schultz’s songs have enjoyed an added layer of emotional richness not often present among his peers. In this regard, Schultz’s music is indispensable within CCM.”
The album features Schultz’s brand new songs “Hope is Rising,” “Time Goes So Fast,” “Psalm 91” and others, as well as his timeless fan-favorites such as the worship anthems “God of Glory” and “I Am.”
The powerful title track – “Follow” – parallels how Schultz navigates his life, not by his own will, but God’s. Originally inspired by a story Schultz heard about a girl with a rough upbringing and no father-figure, Schultz discovered “Follow” was farther reaching than he knew: “As I lived with the song, I thought, ‘This isn’t just for her; this is for me. What do I follow?’”
Follow is available at www.markschultzmusic.com, iTunes, Amazon Music, Spotify and everywhere music is sold.
