It's a busy day for new music, but we can't let this Good Friday pass without mentioning one of our favorites, Cub Sport's new album Jesus At The Gay Bar.

And of course it's out today on Good Friday, of all the days, because it's simply divine. You were probably already expecting that if you heard or watched the video for their single "Keep Me Safe," which was our "Big Obsession" when it was released back in January.

Jesus At The Gay Bar is about moving forward unencumbered. It’s an ode to celebrating one’s past, not just outrunning it, and looking boldly into the future, according to singer Tim Nelson.

“There’s a lot from my life before I came out that has always been shrouded in shame, fear and secrecy," says Nelson. "But it doesn’t have to be a secret anymore, and I feel like I can really shine a light on the magic of it and recognize and celebrate it for what it was and is. A lot of this album is validating my younger self – like if I could have heard some of these songs back then, I might have found some peace within myself sooner, maybe even celebration.”

Hear the new record, which features the likes of Mallrat and Shamir, now below.
