2022 was quite a year for the award-winning sibling trio CAIN, and 2023 is set to be even busier with new music out next month and their first headlining tour kicking off this spring.
CAIN’s anticipated project Honest Offering, their six-song live worship EP, drops February 24 (Sony Music/Provident Entertainment). The project’s pre-sale begins today (click HERE for more information) and is accompanied by the first single, “Friend In Jesus.” Listen HERE. Also, be sure to view the just-released live video recording of “Friend In Jesus” below.
Honest Offering features the writing of award-winning songwriters and artists including Chris Tomlin, Jason Ingram, Ethan Hulse, Micah Kuiper, Nick Schwarz, Jonathan Smith, and Mitch Wong. Wong also shares his vocals on “Shine On Us” while David Leonard appears on “Blessed Assurance.” Touted as their most personal collection of songs yet, the album was produced by Jonathan Smith, Brad King, and David Leonard and was recorded live at Nashville’s legendary Ocean Way Studio.
Honest Offering is also a project CAIN has been wanting to make since their childhood, especially as teens when the Cain family would host high school Bible studies. “We’d pack so many in our family room and just sing to Jesus,” Madison Cain Johnson shares. Now singing as their careers, the siblings knew it was time to record some of their favorite worship songs along with sharing a few new ones. “Our hearts need this,” Madison says. “It’s something that has been on our hearts to do and I can’t believe we actually got to do it!” Taylor Cain Matz adds, “Everybody’s heart for this is just right. We’re ready!” Logan Cain includes, “This feels different to me than anything we’ve done before. It’s so personal.”
“We hope that this is a time that people can get lost in the songs and really connect with God,” Madison concludes. “That is more than we can hope for, more than people just liking the songs or enjoying themselves. We really hope that people get to encounter the living God.”
The members of CAIN are also ready to embark on their first-ever headlining tour this spring. Joined by Katy Nichole and David Leonard, the “Live And In Color Tour” will kick off in March.
