Collington is premiering the first of many new songs coming in 2022 exclusively with NewReleaseToday. “Fighting For Me” will be releases Friday, May 13, 2022 and is produced by former Sanctus Real member, Jake Rye. Working in Rye’s Adrian, MI studio, the collaboration has yielded a song collection that portrays a newfound intimacy for Collington’s music. “I was really selective about the songs I chose for this release,” says James Collington. “I wanted to pick songs that I would sing to Jesus if no one else were listening. During this time I learned that the reward is not the song but the relationship.”

Collington began writing and performing while attending college. What began as a batch of self-produced demos has grown into Collington working with producers such as Eric Owyoung (Hillsong United/ John Foreman) and Bill Scheniman (Bruce Springsteen/ Mick Jagger). Major press took notice of the 2020 release Against The Wall and Collington was awarded “Next Big Thing” by NewReleaseToday at the 9th Annual We Love Christian Music Awards.
