In English

Uusi laulu = The New Song

Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth.

Sing to the Lord, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day. 

Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.

                                                                                                                 Psalm 96:1-3

The first CD Laulakaa uusi laulu (Sing a New Song)
was released in October 2015
Risto Huvila is a Finnish business broker and a public speaker, who also plays the piano and writes songs. Risto's first songs were born already in the early 90's, but the latest intensive production season began in 2009, during which he has written over 100 songs, both melody and lyrics. Most of the songs have been composed on biblical themes. A growing number of Risto's songs have already been translated into English.

Risto introduced his new songs to his friends and in 2010 a group called The New Song was born. In addition to Risto, the group consists of his wife Jaana, Tarja Piirainen and Kristina Vakkilainen and they all sing while Risto plays the piano. 

The New Song's "home base" is the Espoo Pentecostal Church, where they sing a few times a month. The group also travels quite frequently and has made hundreds of visits to other churches and events. In addition to Finland, the group has also performed in Estonia, Sweden, Spain, Austria and Hungary.

The New Song's first album Laulakaa uusi laulu (Sing a new song) was released in October 2015, consisting of 11 songs. In addition to the group's normal piano & vocals setup the album also features strings, brass, and a rhythm section.

You can listen to the samples of the album's all 11 new songs on YouTube:

The name of the group is based on the fact that the group sings exclusively new songs Risto has written. Another factor behind the name is a spiritual renewal process that started in Risto's life in 2005, and which is reflected in the first verses of Psalm 40:

Tarja Piirainen, Kristina Vakkilainen & Jaana Huvila
at Kristina Church in Sala, Sweden in April 2015
I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in him.

Through their songs, The New Song wants to declare the wonderful works of God.
