[Album] Milk & Honey – Crowder
In a year filled with anxiety and stress, 3x GRAMMY-nominated genre-defying artist Crowder delivers a glimpse of hope with a reminder of the promise of a more harmonious and unified place on his new album ‘Milk & Honey,’ available friday (6.11) via sixstepsrecords / Capitol Christian Music Group. This is the label’s first full-length release in Dolby Atmos.
‘Milk & Honey’ features hip hop artist Hulvey and multiple collaborations with Maverick City Music, a diverse collective of powerhouse songwriters and worship leaders. The twelve tracks share a message of hope, promise and purpose in a way that revolutionizes worship music to reach audiences across all cultures. Sonically, the music is as powerful, spirited and transcendent as its theme with a dynamic blend of Southern, porch-jam style swamp music, gospel tradition, beat-heavy hip-hop and classic rock. While he recorded the album alone in his basement studio during the pandemic, Crowder was still able to collaborate with writers, producers and artists who shared the vision of unity and harmony and the hope in the Promises of God.
The lead track is the standout single “Good God Almighty,” which is currently No. 1 on Billboard’s Christian Airplay Chart for its fifth consecutive week. The song has also topped Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs, Christian AC Monitored and Christian AC Indicator Charts. Other standouts include the gentle ballad of reassurance “He Is,” the twang-laden southern rock title track “Milk & Honey,” the piano-driven prayer of hope “The Anchor,” and the soulful “God Really Loves Us” feat. Maverick City Music’s Dante Bowe.
Crowder will headline a 30+ date ‘Milk & Honey Tour’ this fall, kicking off Thurs., Sep. 30th at the Smoky Mountain Center for Performing Arts in Franklin, NC. He’s currently touring across the U.S. and recently performed at Nashville’s famed Grand Ole Opry by opening the 2021 K-LOVE Fan Awards.
