/ -- MissionEighty5 Music
has released its first album, Scandal of Mercy
. Showcasing a welcoming blend of musical styles, intriguing new talent and inspired songwriting, this debut compilation is a warm introduction from what promises to be an exciting new player in inspirational music.
From contemporary praise and worship to hip-hop, rock and even funk, Scandal of Mercy features original music from beloved artists like Sarah Kroger, Greg Walton, Ike Ndolo, Paul J. Kim and Steven Joubert. The album's breakout single
—a pop/rock infused anthem with a driving melody and catchy chorus—is the title track, a first from talented newcomer, 17-year-old Thomas Muglia.
"We wanted Scandal of Mercy to be something more than music. We set out to make a companion for searchers of purpose and spiritual truth," explains publisher, John Vitek. "Each song presents listeners with a multi-faceted challenge: to live out the Scandal of God's unrelenting mercy; to show compassion and healing where there is brokenness and sorrow; and to restore hope to those on the outskirts of life. We created music that would speak directly to those that don't see themselves as deeply rooted in religion, but are still looking for a way to express and to explore their spirituality."
Both entertaining and meaningful, all 8 original tracks on Scandal of Mercy tend toward spiritual growth with messages that generate hope, feed belief, and stoke joy. MissionEighty5 Music has created a soundtrack for listeners as they navigate the twists and turns of modern life.
As a whole, the new label's goal is to deliver messages of hope, healing, compassion, forgiveness, and grace to the world through the voices of accomplished and emerging artists. "Scandal of Mercy," Vitek says, "is only the beginning."
