New Release Round-Up

Posted: Fri, 10/22/2010 - 22:33’s got the scoop on three brand-new projects releasing today, Natalie Grant’s Love Revolution, Jeremy Camp’s We Cry Out: A Worship Project, and Britt Nicole’s Acoustic EP.

Love Revolution, Natalie Grant

August 24 | Curb Records

Live, Natalie Grant is a force to be reckoned with. The powerful vocalist boasts chops most people only dream about. Her latest effort, Love Revolution, unfortunately does little to portray Grant as the incredible powerhouse vocalist that she is. The album – produced by Grant’s husband Bernie Herms – leaves listeners with a pleasant experience, but the “wow” factor of Grant’s previous material is noticeably thin. Where Grant has been instrumental in writing originals on recent projects, her byline is also missing on the majority of Love Revolution, choosing instead to record a host of worship tracks written not only by skilled industry songwriters, but also some relatively unknown local Nashville writers.

We Cry Out: A Worship Project, Jeremy Camp

August 24 | BEC

Worship projects are a dime a dozen in Christian music. Oftentimes, when a big-name artist releases a worship album, it seems like it’s just an attempt to capitalize on the artist’s success and to buy time in between studio projects. Thankfully, this isn’t the case with heavy-hitter Jeremy Camp’s latest worship release, We Cry Out: A Worship Project (BEC). Full review

Acoustic EP, Britt Nicole

August 24 | Sparrow

As a follow up to her sophomore effort, The Lost Get Found, Britt Nicole releases her Acoustic EP this week on Sparrow Records. As you might expect, the project reveals more stripped down versions of the catchy pop tunes we've come to expect from the 25-year-old songwriter, and the result is a surprisingly worship-focused project. As we heard in 2009, Britt has a quality that's appealing to a range of musical tastes, and she achieves this with solid songs, clever, unique arrangements, and a vocal style that's both contemporary and uniquely her own.
