29 October 2021 – Franklin, Tenn – It’s been a whirlwind year for CAIN. With breakout back-to-back No. 1 hits “Rise Up (Lazarus)” and “Yes He Can”, both of which are featured on CAIN’s first full-length album Rise Up (Provident Label Group/Sony Music), the sibling trio is now ready to release their first-ever holiday project. Debuting today, Wonderful, the six-song EP features stellar renditions of “(Christmas) Baby Please Come Home,” “Grown-Up Christmas List,” “Celebrate Me Home,” and their own arrangement of “O Come All Ye Faithful.” Also included is “Christmas Is Coming” featuring Mac Powell, who co-wrote the song with CAIN, and the title track with Steven Curtis Chapman, who also penned the song with the trio. Be sure to check out the beautiful performance video of “Wonderful” below.
“Before ‘Rise Up’ or ‘Yes He Can’ ever came to mind, we had this Christmas project on our hearts,” the members of CAIN share collectively. “Our entire childhood was marked by Christmas traditions and family get-togethers that lasted the entire month of December. Our parents taught us three things: love Jesus, love each other, and love Christmas. It was more than a holiday to us. Somewhere in the cookie-making, picking out gifts at the dollar store, dressing up as shepherds, and singing the ’12 Days of Christmas’ into the landline answering machine, a deep belief took root. Christmas is wonderful and that’s what we want to convey with this project: the joy, the nostalgia, the wishing that time could stand still. And especially for those of you experiencing loss and grief this year, Christmas can still be wonderful. We pray that the presence of God will fill the gaps where family once stood.
