Freebase

  1. Devotion

    Devotion is the eleventh studio album by Christian pop rock band Newsboys, released in November 2004. It is a follow-up album to the band's first worship-oriented project, Adoration. The album debuted at No. 5 on the Top Christian Albums chart, and at No. 56 on the Billboard 200 charts. Several Christian artists made guest appearances on the album, including Rebecca St. James, Bethel World Outreach Choir, Stuart Garrard of Delirious?, and Jon Ellis of Tree63. The album's artwork includes photography of the band by Jimmy Abegg on a valley floor next to the Natchez Trace Parkway Bridge in Williamson County, Tennessee. Because of the bridge's unique design which eliminates any spandrel columns, the perspective on many of photographs leverages the non-blocked views of the scenery and sky on the far side of the bridge behind the band.
