Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductee and Journey member Jonathan Cain globally releases his fourth new solo album in as many years, More Like Jesus, May 3 from Identity Records with The Fuel Music distribution. Billboard breaks the story around Cain’s anticipated, 15-song album and premieres the track “Kingdom Come Down” as the iconic artist continues to press into his faith with inspired new music.

“With Journey planning a relatively light 2019, Jonathan Cain is keeping the faith with his latest solo album More Like Jesus…The ‘Don't Stop Believin'’ (and many more) co-writer embraced faith-based music with 2016's What God Wants To Hear and released a Christmas album, Unsung Noel, the following year,” says award-winning music journalist Gary Graff in Billboard.

"These days that's what I'm writing, and I'm having a blast with it,” shares Cain in the story. “I'm recording in my new studio and I get to play with the A-list players in Nashville…I'm just writing all the time, y'know -- for Journey, too, but this thing with worship music is really fun. It's another gig that I don't get burned out on, and I have a lot of energy I can offer when I come back to Journey.”

Last month, Cain released More Like Jesus’ title track as the first lyric video and single to digital retailers and streaming outlets internationally (https://the-fuel-music.lnk.to/morelikejesussingle). Following its release, “More Like Jesus” was immediately dubbed a “Hot Track” by iTunes and was added to multiple Spotify playlists, including New Music Friday Christian.

Written in response to Cain asking himself what he should pray for and what would be his ultimate New Year’s resolution in 2018, “More Like Jesus” became his personal anthem that helped carry him through a huge, 58-city arena/stadium tour with Journey that played to over one million people last year. An integral part to one of the most popular American rock bands of all time, Cain is intent on “walking his life out more in the mind of Christ.”

Writing all the songs and recording and producing More Like Jesus in his state-of-the-art Addiction Sound Studios in Nashville with engineer David Kalmusky, known for his work on multiple Platinum albums, Cain’s new album features 65-minutes of music. Songs like “Now Unto Him” and “Tell Your Mountain” have already become worship favorites at New Destiny Christian Center in Orlando, FL, where he leads worship and his wife, Paula White, is the Senior Pastor.

The featured track, “Unleashed,” was originally written last year for White’s Unleashed Conference where Cain will again lead the song and more new music. This year’s conference begins May 2, the day before More Like Jesus launches.

The album further includes “Remove Every Veil,” which was originally a bonus track from the acclaimed album What God Wants To Hear, and “Better Man” and “Take These Ashes” from Cain’s Billboard, AllMusic and CCM Magazine featured The Songs You Leave Behind released last year.

The full More Like Jesus track listing follows:

01) Unleashed

02) More Like Jesus

03) Now Unto Him

04) Tell Your Mountain

05) Kingdom Come Down

06) Love Carries The Cross

07) Beautiful In Every Way

08) Only In The Arms

09) Alive

10) Unshaken

11) Already Victorious

12) Take These Ashes

13) Better Man

14) Remove Every Veil

15) For He Has Risen

Writing/co-writing some of the biggest rock songs in history, including “Don’t Stop Believin’,” which is the No. 1 digital catalog rock song, as well as mega hits such as “Faithfully,” “Open Arms,” “Separate Ways,” “Who’s Crying Now” and many more, Cain also released his Rolling Stone-lauded, Publishers Weekly-bestselling book, Don't Stop Believin': The Man, the Band, and the Song that Inspired Generations. In this memoir, Cain shares his remarkable story as well as behind-the-scenes details of his decades-long career with one of America’s favorite rock bands.
