The Newsboys' 17th studio album, 2014's Hallelujah for the Cross, showcases the group's first ever collection of hymns. The album comes on the heels of the group's 2013 effort, Restart, and once again finds them working with producer Seth Mosely. Featuring nine classic hymns, as well as one brand-new song, Hallelujah for the Cross is anything but a traditional hymns album. These are dynamic productions that, as with previous Newsboys albums, find them combining their love of robust anthemic rock, dance music, and reflective worship music. Included here are such popular hymns as "Holy, Holy, Holy," "Jesus Paid It All," "All Creatures of Our God and King," and more. Also featured is the brand-new title track single. ~ Matt Collar
