Juno and GMA Canada Covenant Award-winner Elias Dummer will be dropping a brand new single "How Many Songs Does It Take To Save The World?" on June 24. This will be followed by his new album The Work Vol 2, which will be released on all platforms on July 29th. You can now presave here.
With regards to his new song, Dummer writes, "Ours is a season of scandal, with many hurt by churches and their leaders. `How Many Songs Does It Take to Save the World?' is built around a relaxed electric guitar hook, as I wrestle with my own apathy and invite us each to wake up to God's song of love instead."
Dummer co-founded and fronted one of Canada's most acclaimed worship bands, The City Harmonic. As the group's principal songwriter, he helped pen such hits as "Holy (Wedding Day)" and "Mountaintop," as well as "Manifesto," which served as the theme song for 2011's National Day of Prayer. The City Harmonic earned 12 GMA Canada Covenant Awards and a Juno Award (Canada's GRAMMY® equivalent), before disbanding in 2017.
Dummer released his solo debut, The Work Vol. I, in 2019 and was named Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the 2020 Covenant Awards. Both as a solo artist and with The City Harmonic, Dummer's music has garnered more than 70 million streams to date.
