Pop-flavored album meant to inspire listeners to put feet to their faith—Owens to donate a portion of album’s proceeds to charity—album features Big Daddy Weave, Ellie Holcomb, Meredith Andrews, All Sons & Daughters
Award-winning singer-songwriter Ginny Owens releases her ninth studio album, Love Be The Loudest (buy), Nov. 18, 2016 on her indie label, Chick Power Music, with The Fuel Music distribution. Prior to the release, two brand new Apple Music and Spotify SuperSingle tracks from the album, the reimagined version of Owens’ No. 1 hit song “If You Want Me To” and “The Loudest Voice,” will be available beginning today (Oct. 21). The full pre-order of the album is to begin Nov. 4, 2016.
After more than a million albums sold, a trio of Dove Awards and career-defining No. 1 hit singles like the aforementioned track and “Free,” Owens could have settled on her substantial laurels and coasted through this next season as a sought-after recording artist and songwriter. But she knew God was calling her to be bold, so she set out to design an album that would reflect current music trends while inspiring listeners to put feet to their faith.
“Most people think my greatest life challenge is blindness; I’ve been blind since age three. But that simply isn’t true,” says Owens. “My greatest challenge is doing battle with the critical voices of my own perfectionism, others’ doubt and our culture’s values in my head; they distract me from what’s most important …Every song on this album is an invitation to my heart, and the heart of the listener, to allow God’s perfect voice of love and truth to be irresistible to our hearts, drowning out all other voices, and moving us to action.”
“I want to challenge myself and those who listen to find ways to give away the love God is endlessly pouring into us,” continues Owens. “One practical way for me to give is to donate a portion of sales to support the meaningful work of organizations that touch lives with God’s love.”
Working for the first time with well-known producers Rusty Varenkamp (TobyMac, MIKESCHAIR, Jason Gray), Chad Copelin (Ben Rector, All Sons & Daughters) and Josh Bronleewe (We Are Messengers, Natalie Grant), Owens’ Love Be The Loudest moves into new musical territory, combining her signature, thoughtfully-crafted lyrics with pop and electronic dance music.
