Jeremy Camp says the message behind his newest single mirrors the message of his forthcoming album and movie:
True hope is found only in Christ.
Camp’s newest single, Dead Man Walking, was released Friday alongside an accompanying music video.
His next album is scheduled to hit stores this fall, while the movie based on his 2003 song I Still Believe – a tune written after his first wife’s death to cancer – will film this summer and release in 2020.
Dead Man Walking is based on Colossians 2:13: “When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave all our sins.”
He recorded it and the album when he was dealing with a personal crisis.
“I’ve always loved that Scripture,” Camp told Christian Headlines. “Before we gave our life to Christ, we weren’t really alive. We were dead. That was stirring in me. [The song] is a reflection back on what God has done in my life.”
The video shows Camp meandering through a desert and in an abandoned building. At the end of the video, he discovers a cross atop a hill. The song includes the lyric, “You are the key to all of my chains / to all that I was, now I’m not a slave.”
