Casting Crows release new song 'Scars in Heaven', its debut under Sony Music

06/09/2021 12:16:37 AM

Casting Crowns has recently released its first brand new song, Scars in Heaven.

Released under Sony Music, Scars in Heaven serves as the debut song from the acclaimed Christian group’s forthcoming new studio album, which is bound to release in November. Its music video premiered last Friday on the band's YouTube channel, which has more than 1.2 million followers. 

Co-written by frontman Mark Hall and Matthew West, Hall began writing the stirring ballad while watching his mom care for her parents as they passed away.
"Being a pastor and walking people through loss, there is this moment when we are suddenly very aware of their absence," shared Mark Hall. "The world seems quieter. You realize you’re not going to hear their voice again. And in those moments, you feel the last moments of their life here. You may recall there was pain and there was suffering and there was a tragedy or there was weakness or there were wrong choices and your mind is cluttered with the last thing you remember."
There has been so much heartache and loss across the globe this past year, and this song will resonate with everyone who has lost someone close either recently or as they remember from years past.
"When we lose someone, our only faith and comfort must come from the Father. It’s not going to come from this world, because all we see are reminders that we don’t have them. So what we’ve got to do is ask God to help us release our ideas of who I knew that loved one was, and I’ve got to start focusing on who they are now. They are with Jesus. They are being held by the hands that bear the only 'Scars in Heaven.'"
Since debuting 20 years ago, the Christian music group Casting Crowns has continued to make an impact to its fans. Two years ago, they released their last studio album, Only Jesus, and garnered 290 million streams and a plethora of astonishing success and response after spawning two chart-topping radio singles, two 2020 Dove Awards and three 2019 nominations, a GRAMMY nomination, and two Billboard Music Awards nominations for "Top Christian Album" and "Top Christian Song" ("Nobody" ft. Matthew West). In addition, the prolific and chart-topping CCM group received their newest RIAA Gold Certifications for their No. 1 singles "Only Jesus" and "Nobody."
