Love Liberty Disco (1999)

Updated: 2 days ago


Love Liberty Disco is the eighth studio album by the Australian Christian rock band Newsboys, released on November 16, 1999 by Sparrow Records. The album is produced by Peter Furler.


Starting with this album until 2005, Newsboys albums were released on the Sparrow Records label, as they were transferred over from Star Song Records. Love Liberty Disco is a substantial departure from the rest of the discography of Newsboys, as the music resembles 1970s disco music rather than the pop rock featured on most of their other albums. Despite the genre-shift, tracks such as "Beautiful Sound" and the title track have become fan favorites. In 2000, they promoted their album through their LoveLibertyDisco AirDome Tour.


The album debuted and peaked at number 5 on the Top Christian Albums and number 80 on the Top 200 Albums charts in Billboard magazine. In 2001, their music video of the title song was nominated for a Dove Award for Short Form Music Video of the Year.
