Legendary Christian band Newsboys just released their newest single "Live With Abandon" last week and it is now available through online retailers.
The new single is off of their upcoming full length album, Restart, which hits shelves Sept. 10.
Lead singer Michael Tait, and drummer Duncan Phillips released a video on the band's YouTube channel, giving the fans behind the scenes access to the album.
"We are shooting the live music performance video for our new song, 'Live with Abandon,' and we are in Nashville, it's dark outside we are in the school shooting in the hallways," they said in the video posted on June 20.

Newsboys will depart on the Restart tour this fall along with For King & Country, Moriah Peters, Rapture Ruckus and Campbell.
All touring and show information is available at - newsboys.com/tour.
The Newsboys band was founded in 1985, although it has undergone a number of personnel changes since that time including the addition of lead singer and former dc Talk member Michael Tait, who joined the band in March of 2009. They have produced 28 number one singles, and have put out four albums since 2008 with Restart to be the fifth.
This will be Tait's third album with the group, and the first album since 2011's God's Not Dead.
The title God's Not Dead has invoked a strong response from the band's lead singer Michael Tait.
"He's more than an idea or spiritual being," the Newsboys' Michael Tait told The Christian Post, referring to the title.
"God's Not Dead is so important, because people need to hear sometimes that He's real, He's alive, Jesus was raised from the dead," he said.
