We don’t know the impact date, yet, for “Wanted” but with the fact that it is one of the Top 5 songs being streamed by the radio industry, it must be soon –  and the official music video was shot in Nashville this week!

Songwriting, Producing, Touring & More with Danny Gokey

Interview with Sweetwater

Danny Gokey talks about his new album, “Haven’t Seen It Yet”, his writing process, his experience with his music contracts, writing, producing the songs and how he sets his live shows.  He also talks about

  • What he looks for in his musicians for his tour  (he wants his musicians to be “buttery”.)
  • Celebrating others’ talents.
  • Finally, what he means when he says, “He’s not where I should be, but I’m not where I was.”

The best thing I heard is it that he would like to.” add background singers to his live shows!  (I loved how he added horns the last couple of years!)

TWO New Acoustic Songs by Danny Gokey

Now you can get two acoustic songs from Danny Gokey’s most recent album, “Haven’t Seen It Yet” on one mini, two song EP. You get the following songs (or you can buy individual songs, but why?)

  1. Wanted (Piano & Cello Version) 
  2. Haven’t Seen It Yet (Acoustic)

We love it when Danny’s voice is upfront and center in a song, and these versions deliver it!  Plus the background singers are glorious!!

Video and Lyrics: Wanted

Danny Gokey promo for Wanted

With the third song available from his upcoming album Haven’t Seen It Yet, we have “Wanted”. Here is what Danny says about this new song: (Available now HERE.)

“This song means a lot to me because it was written from God’s perspective to those who have been hurt by so many things in life that they couldn’t control and as a result, they feel lost, damaged or unworthy. If this is you, the Father has your heart and he wants to restore it! His love goes so far beyond what you can imagine and he wants you to know that you ARE wanted! I pray that message sinks deep into the hearts of those who are hurting.”
