In celebration of the upcoming movie based on the life of MercyMe lead singer, Bart Millard, who wrote the mega-hit “I Can Only Imagine” after the loss of his father to cancer, MercyMe is unveiling I Can Only Imagine – The Very Best of MercyMe, a 13-track collection of the band’s most beloved songs. Carefully selected by the band, the album includes their biggest hits such as “Flawless,” “Word Of God Speak,” “God With Us” plus the original version of “I Can Only Imagine.”
To accompany the new film, the band has cut a special new version of “I Can Only Imagine” made just for the movie titled “I Can Only Imagine (The Movie Session).” The official music video was just released for the new movie, I Can Only Imagine. The film is a gripping reminder of the power of forgiveness and beautifully illustrates that no one is ever too far from second chances. “I Can Only Imagine (The Movie Session)” is available for download and streaming now along with a digital pre-order for the upcoming album.
“We’re so excited to get to share this new version of ‘I Can Only Imagine’ with everyone. The song has meant a lot to me over the years, and it really came out of a difficult season,” said Millard. “It brought me a lot of hope, but there has always been something very melancholy about the song in the way that it was recorded before. Getting to do it over this time around, I really felt like it would be awesome to shape in a more celebratory tone, where it conveys us rejoicing in the fact that we don’t have to imagine much longer. It has this cinematic and whimsical feel about it, and it really fits with how I see the song today differently than when I first wrote it.”
The group is also preparing for the release of their new single, “Grace Got You” Feat. John Reuben, which will be released to radio nationwide on Mar. 2.
I Can Only Imagine hits theaters March 15.
