“Only One Way Home”
Mississippi Mass Choir
Malaco Music Group (release date: March 29, 2024)

By Robert M. Marovich

A follow-up to its single with Myron Butler called “The Promise,” “Only One Way Home” finds the timeless Mississippi Mass Choir returning to its traditional gospel roots by putting a foot-stomping backbeat to a pentatonic melody. The message of the song is that Jesus alone is the way to the “house of many mansions,” and once there, oh, what a time it will be.

Those who caught the MMC at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival last May heard the group preview the new single live.
