New Release Day Roundup: 10/1/21 - Andy Mineo's Never Land II Pushed Back Another Week

New Release Day Roundup: 10/1/21

All of today’s new releases and videos can be seen here and here respectively (or at least the ones we know about or have time to round up!). Below are some of my highlights which will be updated throughout the day (as will the new release list and video gallery).

Dropped new music or visuals today? Let us know here & here respectively.

Featured Release

With so many phenomenal albums releasing today this was hard to pick but I’m going to have to go with the most unique, Young Pop Renegades 2021: Origin. You can find out much about this project in parts one and two of my look at the origins behind Origin with the artists involved on the project. Part 3 will be posted on Monday.

Here’s the MEGA collab on the album with all 11, yes I said ELEVEN, artists on it – nobody. The irony of that track name has only just struck me typing that!

Notable Releases

Where else could I possibly start but with Andy Mineo’s Never Land 2? After several weeks of delays due to a copyright issue, it has finally Landed and my goodness it was worth the wait! I full expect this to storm the charts and make such a positive impact in this world. Those first 3 tracks certainly make a big impact off the bat!

Relent released their new Heavy album. Heavy by name, and by nature too, both musically and thematically. This album is going to help so many people!

Forget up next, NXT Move are here now! Their debut collective album It Has To Be God soared to number 2 on the iTunes charts when it released on Wednesday. I guess It Has To Be God…

Matty Mullins said the new Memphis May Fire Somebody single is “one of his favorite MMF songs of all time”. Be sure to tell Somebody about this track!

Rare of Breed is coming at ya with his new single from the Bottom of the Map.

DJ Maj & George Mhondera declare I’m Gonna Live on a wonderful new upbeat single.

We Still Believe Roy Tosh is at the upper end of CHH, and his new album only solidifies that belief!

MŌRIAH released Trust, the 2nd single off her Live from the Quarry EP (out 29th Oct). You can read more info on the EP here.

Terrians fights against apathy in Wake Up

Hannah Schaefer has a certain positive energy to her vocals and he sophomore album Crown highlights that perfectly.

Jon Foreman released his new solo album Roll Tape: Live From Melody League Studios

If life gives you lemons, Da’ T.R.U.T.H & D’Shondra will make you Lemonaid.

Steven Malcolm and KB are back On Point

Notable Music Videos

Looking for a gripping cinematic music video to captivate you? Look no further than Adelaide’s Masquerade music video. You won’t see a better music video for a while!

If you’re after positivity then look no further than Saintz’s Beautiful World music video which has it on tap!

Looking for CHH heat? Well is 70 Degrees hot enough for you?! Miles Minnick, George. Rose and Porsha Love will quench your thirst!

Ellie Holcomb is the latest artist to prove that heartfelt lyrics is all you need to make a music video as captivating as a full cinematic music video. Here’s the Constellations music video.

Between You & Me

If there’s a new episode of our associate podcast Between You & Me out in the world, I’ll start highlighting it here. Today’s new episode features JesusWired friend Tasha Layton and we couldn’t be happier she’s finally appeared on the podcast. You want real? Tasha’s going to provide it and Between You & Me is a space for just that. Real.

How Ridiculous

Unless there’s suddenly no video upload from them (in which case I might cry!), I will always highlight their new video here. There’s no better way to start your weekend than with a dose of How Ridiculous detruction, positivity and a totally legit science class with Gaunson. So, how many concrete slabs will the 1000lbs spiked wrecking ball get through?

I hope these roundups introduce you to a few new artists each week. I’m aiming to have these up as early on release days as possible from next week onwards.

If you know of any releases I’ve missed on the new releases list or any videos in the video gallery, let me know in the comments below/send us a DM on social media. Want to come on board and help us cover more on new release days, or any other day for that matter, please contact us and read more information here (we’re looking for tons of new writers currently, I can’t cover everything!).

I hope everyone reading this has a great weekend, and I’ll see you next Friday for the next roundup.
