NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 21, 2022) – Futuresthe Georgia-based via Australia group, aka the Aus-American blend ensemble, is set to released the video for “Hills + Horizons,” today, Friday, January 21, 2022. The title-track is the lead single from the January 7th release on DREAM Records. Music video link.
Like many acts today, Futures spent much of their “down” time over the past few years writing and recording the 11-cut blend of pop-rock infused tunes. When the doors opened, the group went out and performed these songs at small art/coffee house spots across their home state to feel a connection with others. As the group’s leader Mark Evans states below, we have experienced an unprecedented time in our lifetime and the songs that grew out of this have a mix of emotions, themes, sounds and hope. The goal is to connect with people and hopefully provide an outlet of peace.
“Hills & Horizons speaks to the ups & downs, the lonely road & the in-betweens of life where we don’t get to see the whole picture. It connects on a personal level & at the same time, has been our shared human experience over the last 2 years. We believe the spirit of these songs breaks through depression, disappointment, discouragement & disillusion; literally changing not only how a person feels about their situation but how they see everything.” - Mark Evans, Futures.
The Hills & Horizons album has seen early playlist adds on Spotify's New Music Friday Christian and Sing A New Song, Apple Music's Risers, YouTube's Christian Goes Pop, Pandora's New Christian Music Now and more since its release on January 7, 2022. The title track "Hills & Horizons" has garnered over 100,000 streams across all platforms in its first week. The single has also seen early buzz at radio with its debut on PLAY MPE as the most streamed/downloaded song of the week.

The band members - Chloe Evans, Mark Evans, Danae Leslie and Ryan Rolls had a hand in the treatment for the video that captures the muse of music and how it played a central role in every great awakening throughout history. The band recently sat down with JesusFreakHideout and talked about how the "Hills & Horizons" music video follows the whisperings of a new awakening from a dream all the way to the hilltop, with signal fires being lit across the world. This is our journey; this is the kindred call inside all of us.
"We're honored to be partnering with the team," says Lance Brown, co-owner of DREAM Label Group & Publishing. "We are excited to see what God will do with this incredible album."

Futures formed when lifelong friends from Australia made the move to Atlanta. What began to emerge was a unique Aus-merican blend of Pop/CCM that sonically stands alone with lyrical depth to boot. Along the way they’ve topped the Australian Inspirational iTunes charts as well as the USA Christian Singles Chart with the release of Imaginations (2017), followed by their live album Just the Cross (2019), they’re just getting started. 2021 was a significant year for the band as they completed their debut studio LP Hills & Horizons. The Futures are looking bright. Releasing worldwide on January 7, 2022, the record has been 2 years in the making; its genesis traced back to writing retreats from the oceanside cafes of Savannah, Georgia to the wine regions of South Australia along with many an overseas zoom session.
DREAM provides artists with a genuine approach to how real artist development should be done. By allowing for a partnership as a business model, DREAM artists empower themselves to develop and carry out a real vision for their lives as they affect other people’s lives with their music and message. Incorporating social media, press, radio and touring, DREAM is helping its artists grow together as a family. DREAM was founded in 2008 and has grown into multiple labels and a publishing company.
