Third Day's Mac Powell: "Soul on Fire" Came Together in About 30 Minutes

Third Day has come out with their first purely worship album in over a decade.  The first single from the album, "Soul on Fire" has rocketed up the charts and is frequently requested by you, our listeners!

Here, lead singer Mac Powell talks about both the origins of the song, as well as the impact its having on audiences all across the world.  What started out as a chorus idea became the song you hear today (with the help of Matt Maher) in just a matter of about 30 minutes!

"The song 'Soul On Fire' is definitely one of our favorites from the new album. It talks about when we’re walking in our faith and we’re wanting to be at that place when you first fell in love with the Lord."

Celebrating a powerful and uplifting 20+ years since the original independent release of the band’s GOLD selling self-titled debut album, THIRD DAY - which Billboard has called “one of the best rock bands, period” - forges new but familiar ground on its upcoming 12th studio album, Lead Us Back: Songs of Worship.  Looking beyond the extraordinary stats and accolades including 30 #1 singles, more than 8.5 million albums sold, 24 GMA Dove Awards, four GRAMMY®s, an American Music Award and being honored as a Georgia Music Hall of Fame inductee, the band is focusing on the spirit of worship and a pure consistency that has driven all of its recordings and live performances, and has always inspired its loyal fans to draw closer to God.
