Franklin, TN (October 7, 2019)
Rescue Story, the long-awaited album from GRAMMY® and GMA Dove Award®-winning artist Zach Williams is out now. Supporting Rescue Story, which is the follow-up to his GRAMMY-winning album, 2017’s Chain Breaker, is Williams’ 21-city Rescue Story Tour, which kicks off next week from Syracuse, NY.
The ten songs found on the aptly titled Rescue Story (courtesy of Sony Music/PLG) were produced by Jonathan Smith and are a reflection of where Williams’ life was 20 years ago to now, to the moments and places that he didn’t even realize God was involved. “I can see now He was putting these little things together and allowing me to live in these moments so I can write about it one day,” Williams shares. “Rescue Story is the appropriate title for it all.”
Writing music and playing guitar spanning for more than two decades, it was when Williams completely gave his life to Christ that everything changed and he knew he’d found his calling. He now has a renewed vision of who he is as an artist, a songwriter, and a performer, stating, “I have a lot to say about what I walked through to get to where I am.”
Williams recently went in-depth with Billboard about his life story, while also sharing about his new songs, and about the fans. “I hear their stories, I hear their struggles,” he shares. “They’re the same as mine. I don’t pretend to have it all together or try to be better than anyone else. I just wanted to write a record that felt real and honest. I think if you do that, the connections to the songs are going to be there.”
Williams’ interview, recorded into a podcast, is now live. Along with the interview, he also performed a special acoustic version of “Rescue Story,” the album’s first single.
