Singer, songwriter, author and podcaster Mike Donehey is stepping into the solo spotlight after two decades as a founding member and front man for the iconic CCM band Tenth Avenue North, which announced a surprise farewell in 2020. Donehey, with the backing of an incredible amount of support from listeners, made his solo debut earlier this year with two independently-released EPs, Work of Art and A Father And Two Sons, and a full-length major-label album is set to follow. Today (August 6), Donehey dropped a new track titled “Unity Hymn” from his upcoming Flourish album, available for pre-order and due out August 27.
“I called the album Flourish after a song I wrote early on in the pandemic last year,” Donehey shared about the inspiration behind his new album title. “I wanted to raise my fist and raise my voice in sharp defiance of my circumstances. I wanted to remind my heart that true flourishing isn’t external but internal. I wanted to remind myself that though heaven and earth gives way, Christ remains the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
