Human Song (1992)

Updated: Jan 27


Human Song is the sixth studio album by the Christian music group First Call, released in 1992 on Myrrh Records. It is the fourth non-holiday album with production by Michael Omartian with U.K. Christian musician and vocalist Chris Eaton co-produced the track "Land of Many Tears." It is the first album to feature vocalist and session singer Marabeth Jordan, who replaced Melodie Tunney to continue on as a trio. Human Song continues their pop sound heard from their previous album God is Good, but with more of an emphasis on dealing with trials endemic to the human condition such as divorce, abuse and real-life problems.


First Call covers two songs: "Ring Them Bells" by Bob Dylan and "Don't You Worry 'bout a Thing" by Stevie Wonder. The songs "Broken Places" and "I Will Always Come Back to You" were hits on the Christian radio charts. All three members were involved with songwriting input. Human Song peaked at number 7 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart.
