MURFREESBORO, Tenn. â€“ Sunday Edition, one of Nashvilleâ€™s favorite groups, was recently in the studio recording vocals for the highly anticipated follow-up single to the groupâ€™s biggest hit to date â€“ â€œHe Bore a Cross.â€
The group is partnering once more with BSA World Records for this release â€“ which was produced by Glen Bates (Crystal River, Tribute Quartet).Â Bates produced the critically acclaimed â€œHe Bore a Crossâ€ as well.
The song, titled â€œMercy Walked a Road,â€ was written by Glen Bates and Glen Ashworth and is set to hit radio later this month.
â€œWith the success that we had with â€˜He Bore a Cross,â€™ it was a real easy decision for us to partner once again with Glen and BSA World Records,â€ mentioned Deon Unthank of Sunday Edition.Â â€œGlen has a real heart for this industry, and he really believes in us.Â We donâ€™t take that lightly.â€
â€œHe Bore a Crossâ€ became the groupâ€™s biggest hit to date earlier this year â€“ giving them their highest charting position on the Singing News Top 80 (#44) and earning the group its first Top 10 New Release.Â In addition, the song landed Sunday Edition its second #1 hit on the GospelMusicTimes.com Top 40 Fan Chart.
The song has also charted on all major Southern Gospel charts â€“ SoGospelNews.com Top 40 Weekly Chart, Christian Voice Magazine Top 100 Southern Gospel Chart, and PowerSource Magazine Top 100 Southern Gospel chart.
Sunday Edition has been recording vocals for a brand new album.Â Tracks for the new album, tentatively titled Sunday Worship, were recorded by Bobby McAllister for Salem Sound in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.Â Sunday Worship is being produced and arranged by group members Chris Unthank and Deon Unthank with additional production by Steve Allen (Vestal Goodman, Gaither Vocal Band, Gold City).Â Vocals for the new recording are being recorded at Square One Studio in Franklin, Tennessee this month.Â Sunday Worship has a tentative release date of late Winter.
Until then, the group released the He Bore a Cross EP last month, which features the hit single â€œHe Bore a Cross,â€ three songs from the upcoming Sunday Worship CD (â€œFollow Me/Precious Lord,â€ â€œThe Old Rugged Cross,â€ and â€œAmazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)â€), and two songs from Chris Unthankâ€™s upcoming solo recording Love the Light (â€œGod Speakingâ€ and â€œI Need Theeâ€).
