There’s four free songs from Castle Lights on NoiseTrade at the moment, “Paint the Stars” and “Saint Era”, plus remixes of both songs. It’s pretty good stuff. I’ve you’ve never heard of them, Castle Lights is a indie/Brit-pop group founded by former Leeland member Jeremiah Wood. What do you think?
I’ve got some very exciting free music news to share today… “Mess of Me” anyone? That’s right, Switchfoot’s latest hit “Mess of Me” is available for free, plus several other great songs. The list:
- Leeland – “Count Me In”
- Underoath – “Writing On The Walls”
- Rapture Ruckus – “One”
- Hillsong United – “No Reason to Hide”
- Parachute Band – “Shout It Out”
- Family Force 5 – “Dance or Die (The Secret Handshake Remix)”
- Falling Up – “Streams of Woe at Acheron”
- And of course, Switchfoot’s “Mess of Me”
All eight songs can be yours, for free, thanks to Parachute Festival (the New Zealand equivalent of Creation or Cornerstone Festival.) You do need to sign up for the Parachute Festival’s website to download the songs, and you can only download each song once, but the music is great, and it’s free. Definitely worth checking out. Enjoy!
You know how the Free Christian Music Awards are going on right now here on TFCMB? Well, I think I just found my vote for sampler of the year. This particular sampler is being released by the radio show Total Axxess & Provident Music. I have to say, this is the most impressive track-list I’ve seen in a long time:
- Fireflight – “Desperate”
- Leeland w/ Brandon Heath – “Follow You”
- Tal & Acacia – “Garbage In”
- Pillar – “Secrets and Regrets”
- Phil Stacey – “You’re Not Shaken”
- Matt Maher – “Hold Us Together”
- RED – “Start Again”
- Brandon Heath – “Love Never Fails”
- Tenth Avenue North – “Times”
- Jars of Clay – “Boys (Lesson One)”
You’ve got brand new Fireflight, great songs from Pillar, Phil Stacey, Brandon Heath, and Jars of Clay, really, just about everything on this sampler is worth getting. Don’t miss this one!
Yep, this is hot: To help promote the Follow You Tour featuring Leeland, Brandon Heath, and Francesca Battistelli, Provident Records is giving away three free songs, Brandon Heath’s hit “Wait and See”, Tenth Avenue North’s “Hold My Heart”, and Leeland’s “Follow You”, which also features Brandon Heath – all three of which are amazing songs.
Now, you’re probably looking at this and wonder why on earth there’s a free song from Tenth Avenue North and not Francesca Battistelli. Honestly, I have no idea, but “Hold My Heart” is a excellent song, so I’m not complaining. :) Just don’t miss these downloads, it’s only going to be available for a limited time, so make sure to grab the songs ASAP. Enjoy!
Alright, I’ve got a free download by Leeland from their upcoming album, Love Is On the Move. All you need to do is fill out a simple survey, and it will link you to a free download of the title track. The song is about God’s great love for us, and how it comes to heal the broken and lonely and to set the sinners free. Lead singer Leeland Mooring’s explains why this song is the title track:
The biggest thing that I could ever understand, or get from God, is how much God loves me…Love is the most powerful thing we can release into the world. It doesn’t matter how much anger, hate, violence or sin is surrounding us, the most powerful thing we can give someone is love. That’s why we titled the record ‘Love Is On The Move.’
It’s a great song, and I hope you’ll like it. Be sure you check it out.
If you liked that song, be sure to visit’s Leeland’s website to check out the listening party of their entire album. You can also see short stories behind each song, and what they mean to the band. To enter the listening party, you’ll need to give your email and zip-code to listen, but I think that’s a small price you have to pay.
