Chart-topping recording artist and songwriter Micah Tyler released his latest single, "So Will I," on Nov.17, marking the sixth installment from the upcoming multi-artist album, A New Heaven And A New Earth. This musical endeavour not only showcases the talents of various Christian artists but also serves as a testament to the beauty of God's creation, emphasizing the responsibility of believers to be faithful stewards of the world.
Co-writing “So Will I” with Dove Awards-nominated Garrett Moshier (CAIN), who also produced the single, Tyler drew inspiration for the beautifully crafted ballad from both the Old and New Testaments.
“The hook of the song is a little bit of a play on words from John 3:16,” says Tyler. “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son. And the world that they're talking about in that context is the people of the world – that God would love us so much that he would give his son Jesus. That was the jumping-off point for me to start looking back and seeing God's dominion over Creation.
Micah Tyler's musical journey has been marked by numerous hit songs, including "Never Been a Moment," "I See Grace," "AMEN," "Feels Like Joy," "Different," and "Praise The Lord." His achievements include multiple GMA Dove Awards and K-LOVE Awards nominations, and he has written four BMI Top 25 Christian Songs.
The song beautifully expresses Tyler's desire to worship God amidst the awe-inspiring landscapes, from mountaintops to canyons, echoing the sentiment that if God loved the world, so will he.
“If you look back at the beginning in Genesis, every time that He would create – the light, the stars, the moon, the oceans – He would say that it was good,” continues Tyler. “If God would love this world, put this thing together and call this thing good, I think there's a challenge for us to do the same. ‘So Will I’ is just me going, OK, God, I want to make sure I'm worshipping you on top of these mountains that you created and from the depths of these canyons that you carved out. It's my response to this beautiful world that you call good.”
So I will lift my voice in worship
From these mountaintops
I’ll sing Your beauty
Through the canyons
Echoing it all
Cause if You so loved this world,
So will I
Micah Tyler's "So Will I" and the A New Heaven And A New Earth project serve as a tribute to the beauty of God's creation. Through music and collaborative efforts, these artists are not only sharing their talents but also encouraging believers to be caregivers of the world, mirroring God's love and appreciation for His creation. As we await the full-length album in June 2024, this project stands as a reminder of the power of music to inspire positive change and a deeper connection with the world around us.
