Recording artist, actress and producer MōRIAH releases “You Mean The World” today on digital and streaming outlets worldwide via The Fuel Music via https://slinky.to/YouMeanTheWorld. The song is the second of several singles slated to debut in the coming months from the multi-artist A New Heaven And A New Earth project, set to premiere in the winter of 2023-24.
Mauriat, who wrote, produced and engineered “You Mean The World”, commissioned Andrew Bergthold (We The Kingdom) to play the strings. The result is a beautifully crafted love song that envelops your concern for the world and everyone in it.
“When something or someone is vulnerable and unprotected, the first responsibility is to care,” Mauriat said. “I could not have written this lyric if I had not been heartbroken for not taking that responsibility seriously in the past. It is a word to say to This is a delicate consideration that I would like to attribute to the Earth and its Creator. ”
(Chorus) “Clothed in the sun / Crowned with stars / So who can say / Who are you? / You mean the world (3X) / You mean the world to me.”
Concurrently with the single, Mauriat has teamed up with up-and-coming director Finley Joel to shoot a companion video for “You Mean The World,” due for release later this month in both Rome and Nashville.
Reflecting on when he was first asked to participate in the ‘A New Heaven And A New Earth’ project, Mauriat reveals: . His one of the few things that unites all people on this planet is that our feet are all resting on the same spinning miracle. By nurturing nature, we care for each other. ”
Mauriat’s single follows the Grammy-nominated and Dove Award-winning lead vocalist of Building 429, Jason Roy’s debut, ‘A New Heaven And A New Earth’. His “It’s All Yours” was released on his May 12th and was named to Apple Christian’s Best New Songs list, as well as being featured on the “New in Christian” and “Rise Up” curated playlists. .
For the A New Heaven And A New Earth project, additional recordings were made by well-known Christian artists who felt inspired to participate in response to calls to write and record songs about the importance of creation. A song was produced. Covering musical genres such as rock, pop, hip-hop, R&B, indie, and folk/Americana, the songs will be released as singles each month until November 17th, along with a full-length album of “A New Heaven and A New Earth.” It is scheduled to be released this winter.
