Things have been happening over on Facebook lately that we need to let you know about. Especially since the outcome is a highly unexpected – but gloriously welcome – single release from the Delirious? vaults.
It all started with a couple of groups. Inspired by the fact that the power of social networking managed to put Rage Against The Machine at the top of the charts last Christmas, a few fans got to thinking: why not get a profoundly Christian song in the news and up the charts at Easter? In fact, two groups sprung up at the same time independently of each other, both passionate about seeing Delirious? back in the charts.
That was a couple of weeks ago. Now both those Facebook groups have merged and the count of fans is rising – 23,948 at the time of writing. And after a few discussions with Furious Records and Kingsway Music, we’re pleased to announce that two versions of the HistoryMaker single will be available for download only between March 28 and April 3 2010.
Fans will be able to choose between the original studio version or the live version taken from the band’s up and coming release ‘Farewell Show’, due out April 19.
Says Kingsway’s press office: "Delirious? have always been about the fans – and that will never change. So we’re pleased to do all we can to support them as they continue to wave the flag for a generation. We wish the fans every success."

Delirious? will be donating all their profits from the UK downloads to charity projects supported by CompassionArt - Creating Freedom from Poverty www.compassionart.tv
