Cade Foehner released a new single entitled “Fade To Black” featuring Douglas Wilson on Friday (Dec. 11).
Foehner’s deep growling vocals perfectly blends with the infectious instrumental and stunning guitar riffs.
“Thankful that Canon Press and Doug Wilson wanted to do this tune. It is a needed song for our time,” Foehner said in a statement. “This is not sappy, clappy Christian music, this is 100-proof Gospel Outlaw Christian Music.”
When speaking on how the collaboration came to be, Foehner explained that he is a huge fan of Doug Wilson and says “he’s a man’s man who knows how to fight like a Christian should in a society like ours.”
He continued: “Our culture needs the Gospel, but not the Gospel most contemporary evangelicals preach. We need the one that is not pretty and not nice, because if you lose those elements you are no longer talking about the true Gospel. And therefore it can’t save anyone – De facto uselessness. We need that true Gospel where God’s Son is crucified and crushed for the sins of his people. Doug and Canon Press does this in such an unapologetic way that I couldn’t NOT ask him to be on it! We met at the “Fight Laugh Feast” conference here in Nashville a few months ago and began emailing back and forth, and one thing led to another… And here we stand!”
The song was released as a standalone single as Foehner wanted to “do an unvarnished stand alone song and let it speak for itself.”

“Fade To Black” was co-written by Foehner alongside Micah Wilshire and Katie Wilshire.
Foehner is expecting his first child with his superstar wife Gabby Barrett in January 2021.
