I’ve got a tremendous offer to pass on to you today – the Freedom album.
If you’ve never heard of it, it’s a compilation of 26 songs by different Christian artists released to support the International Justice Mission in combating modern-day slavery and oppression throughout the world. That alone would be a great reason to buy the CD, but wait till you hear what’s on it.
I’m not going to post the full tracklisting, since it’s already on the website, but I will say there is new, unreleased, and rare songs from CCM heavyweights like TobyMac, Relient K, Sanctus Real, Tenth Avenue North, and MercyMe, plus songs from under-the-radar but still awesome artists like Green River Ordinance, Phillip LaRue, The War, and Over the Rhine. There’s a lot more as well, but that should give you a good idea of what to expect.
The only place the album is available is Family Christian Stores (online, or if you can find it, offline) for just $5. Now, I realize that $5 isn’t exactly free, but you are getting 26 songs for $5, and if you consider that each of those songs could be sold for 99¢ on iTunes, you could look at as really getting something like 21 songs for free. Even with a few dollar for shipping, it’s a ridiculously good deal that supports a great cause. Plus, I’m listening to my copy right now, and the music is seriously good too. Don’t miss it!
I’m seeing a lot more Christmas music this week, with almost all of my regular websites featuring at least one Christmas song, plus a sprinkling of normal music for a decent week all around.
First up, iTickets has two free songs, The Sonflowerz’s Christmas song “Beautiful Miracle” and an early Jonny Diaz song called “You Are A Storm”. “You Are A Storm” is actually back from Jonny’s independant days, from an album called They Need Love. Check it out!
Also free this week, Video Rocket has John Reuben’s zany music video for “Town Folk”. It’s actually a retelling of a several stories from the Old Testament, in a rather crazy, but still entertaining way. Worth getting for sure.
Next up, Gospel Music Channel has two free downloads this week, a Christmas song from Trin-i-tee 5:7 and the radio edit version of Shane & Shane’s great song “Everything is Different”.
FreeCCM.com has got a free Christmas song from Todd Agnew called “Did You Know?”, from Todd’s Christmas album Do You See What I See?. FreeCCM is supposed to be featuring exclusively Christmas music this week, so I’m holding my breathe for Stellar Kart’s “Punk the Halls”.
Last but not least this week, New Release Tuesday has a free download of Kari Jobe’s “Adore Him”, and if you missed it last week, you can also download Dreampilot’s song “Comedown” – which, as I said before, is a very catchy song. Enjoy!
Well, that wraps up this week – look for more music on Tuesday!
It’s Christmas Eve, and thanks to many reader suggestions, I have more then enough songs to finish up this year’s Christmas series. In fact, I’ve got so many left, this post is going to be predominately composed of links. This post is going to be a bit of a endurance event, so make sure you’ve got a while to dedicate to downloading. I kid you not, there is a TON of music to come. Brace yourself. Oh, yeah, and merry Christmas!
Let’s kick it off with Shane & Shane. They’ve got their song “Away in A Manger” available from Today’s Christian Woman. Actually, Mandisa, Sara Groves, and Casting Crowns all have songs on that site too.
Alli Rogers has a brand new Christmas EP up on NoiseTrade. It’s called The Silent Stars EP, and you can pay want you want for it, or get it for free by sharing it with 5 friends. Also on NoiseTrade is the Christmas edition of The Silent’s CD Unseen, featuring their version of “We Three Kings”. To top those two, you can also get a free compilation featuring songs from the Love Came Down A Christmas Time Tour. The sampler has songs from all 4 artists on the tour, Jars of Clay, Sixpence None the Richer, Sara Groves, and Leeland. Very cool. Check it here.
If that’s still not enough music for you, GodTube has got free Christmas songs from Travis Ryan, Rachel Scott, and Sara Groves, plus some other goodies. Then there’s two free songs from High Valley on the Centricity Record’s website. Leigh Nash has a free Christmas song on Download.com, Theocracy has a wild Christmas song called “Rudolph vs. Frosty” up on their website, and then there’s The Staple Singers, who have “No Room at the Inn” up on Download.com.
Sixpence None the Richer, Sara Groves, and DecembeRadio all have Christmas songs available for free on JesusFreakHideout.com, iTicket’s has a Christmas download from Gabriela Hindy, plus two other songs from Abandon and Mission Six. Asthmatic Kitty Records has two free Sufjan Stevens Christmas songs available too.
Amazon.com has got numerous free songs from the likes of Sixpence None the Richer, Leigh Nash, Jars of Clay, Mannheim Steamroller, Big Daddy Weave, Jim Brickman, David Phelps, and BarlowGirl.
I think Don Francisco wins the award for the most songs available. 21 on his website!
Even though it’s not a download, The Advantage has added a cool Christmas song to their MySpace profile. It’s called “Retail Christmas”, and it’s actually quite good. Here’s hoping they do a free download of it soon.
Brian Bate’s has an interesting free download. It works on a honor system – something you sadly don’t see much of any more. Anyway, the song is “Mary Christmas” and it’s available on his website.
Willet’s website, after being down for weeks, is finally up and running again with a free original Christmas song by the band. It’s called “The Nativity”, and looks pretty good.
Speaking of independent rock, the group The Violet Burning has got a full Christmas CD for free this year. It’s called Divine, and you can check that out on their website.
And, to close, Sleeping At Last has three Christmas downloads up on their Virb profile, plus one live song and another normal track.
Merry Christmas everyone!
Would someone tell CCM Magazine that’s still October? It seems like they are putting out Christmas downloads already, with some great free-and-festive songs from Casting Crowns, BarlowGirl, Sixpence None The Richer, Sara Groves, the Annie Moses Band, and Shane & Shane.
The names of the groups should speek for them selves, and as I look at the site, it looks like the downloads are only going to be there for a week, so I’ll stop typing and let you go and check them out yourselves. Oh, and merry Christmas!
