“While working on this album, I realized that all the songs I wrote were about healing in one way or another, something that we all need,” said Mark Hall of Casting Crowns. “This deluxe album is a comprehensive picture of healing, how God meets us where we are, and what his healing looks like. ‘Healer’ is a scripture-filled advance, challenging us to seek the true healing of Jesus, the only healer we need.”
To celebrate the release of the album, the band is releasing a new music video for one of the new tracks, “No Hurt”.
A press release noted, “This anthemic song is a perfect setting for the music video which spotlights the Urban Bicycle Food Ministry in the Nashville area. Fans can donate to the ministry on YouTube while watching the video. Urban Bicycle Food Ministry is a ministry that provides meals, basic needs, and outreach to people on the streets in Nashville and Memphis, Tennessee.
