The Innocence Mission's first CD single in 14 years

The band's UK label Bella Union Records, in conjunction with Cool Badge Radio & TV Promotions, has released a promotional single for the track "Look Out From Your Window". Although I do not if these are one-off CD-Rs or pressed singles as of yet, I can say that several have appeared on Ebay in the last few days. One seller said his copy was obtained at a record fair. It's unknown if these will be released commercially.

In other news, the UK single for "Look Out From Your Window" has premiered an animated music video on Paste Magazine and is available now.

Annual 2018 Fundraiser

You may have noticed here on the main news page that there's a Paypal link. Because this is not a commercial site, I am not paid for the Innocence Mission related ads you may see nor does this site generate revenue of any kind. The cost of our web domain name has increased nearly 100% this year (but it's the first increase since 2006), and I have also invested in a video software suite in order to continue providing video downloads.

So with that in mind, we only need $64 to reach our annual goal in order to balance the site budget.

Click the donate icon below to read the disclaimer and find out how you can donate to You can also see the annual operating costs and donations.


"Green Bus" music video

The Innocence Mission have released a new full-length music video for "Green Bus" from their forthcoming album Son On The Square. You can view the video below.
