Christian music’s favorite tween group, pureNRG, is scheduled to release their fourth studio album (including a Christmas album) on Fervent Records, July 14, 2009. The Real Thing was once again produced by the winning team of Rob Hawkins (Jackson Waters) and Mark Hammond (Everlife, Cheetah Girls, Ashley Tisdale).
“It’s unbelievable that we’re already releasing our fourth studio album this summer,” says pureNRG. “We had fun recording the new CD and think that our fans will like it. We can’t wait to start performing the new songs for everyone on our upcoming tour dates.”
The new project showcases upbeat dance numbers and ballads that spotlight the strong vocals of pureNRG, while also displaying a new maturity for the three members. (Jordan is now 16, Caroline, 14 and Carolyne, 13). The album has ten new songs with three sing-a-long versions of “Here We Go Again,” “Footloose,” and the new up-tempo, “Radio,” which explains how the airwaves brings Christ’s love through music and beams it across the world. The title track is a tribute to how Jesus is the real thing, the touching ballad, “Before The Sun Goes Down,” details how each of us should repent our sins before the day is done, with another ballad, “Sweet Jesus,” exalting Jesus as our refuge and friend. “Cover Of A Magazine,” tells the listener to put their self-worth in Christ instead of what’s popular in modern culture.

pureNRG just returned from their first international tour in Norway and did four performances for the Soul Children’s Festival. It was an educational event with 1500 school age children from Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Ireland who were taught new music under several different conductors. pureNRG provided entertainment for the festival with three performances at the Konserthuset, which is similar to a performing arts center and once at Jernbanetorget, which is an outdoor mall. While in the country, pureNRG also got to do some sightseeing with a tour of the Royal Palace and a beautiful boat ride in the city of Oslo.
pureNRG has a busy schedule ahead of them that includes the Creation West Festival in July, a second appearance in August at the American Airlines Center in Dallas at a Ringling Brother’s Circus event and a missions trip to Mexico in October.
