The newest album from the legendary Andraé Crouch, titled The Journey, is a masterful showcase of one of Gospel music's most pioneering songwriters of the past century.

While the 15-track project tastefully experiments with progressive sounds and styles, Crouch remains true to the classic refrains and unforgettably catchy melodies that have been the hallmark of his music for more than four decades. Whether ragtime or jazz, funk or hymns, Andraé Crouch leads listeners on an emotional journey of great music framing an even greater message.

The Journey, produced and co-written by Luther "Mano" Hanes, features an all-star group of backing vocalists (including Jerard Woods, LeAnne Palmore and Linda McCrary-Fisher), as well as a variety of guest vocalists, ranging from Kim Burrell and Take 6 to Chaka Khan, Marvin Winans and plenty more.

Hitting stores September 27, The Journey reminds us that Crouch stands humbly in a league of his own. It is a must-have for any gospel music lover.
