Nashville, TN (September 12, 2012) -----Andrew Peterson's latest project, Light for the Lost Boy was one of the most eagerly anticipated albums of the year, and after releasing last week the project has been hailed as Peterson's best album to date. The project, produced by longtime friend and producer Ben Shive (Jeremy Camp, Sara Groves, Matt Wertz), along with Cason Cooley (Katie Herzig, Mat Kearney, Audrey Assad), features ten new songs written by Peterson. The album will be available in three formats; CD, special edition CD with a 32-page booklet written by Peterson and seven acoustic extra songs, and on a vintage vinyl record. The special edition and vinyl projects will only be available online and at Peterson's concerts.

"I can't remember a record that made me this nervous," Peterson says. "It sounds so different, and I was really hoping the songs would connect with people. As much as I wish I were cool enough to not care what my listeners thought, the day of the release I was glued to my computer-it was such a joy to be able to read peoples' thoughts and to thank them in real-time for their comments. I was moved to tears several times. I can't express how glad I am that God lets me do this."

"Whenever we release a new album from one of our artists it is always with nervous anticipation," says Steve Ford, Vice President of Marketing, Centricity Music. "However, Andrew's Light for the Lost Boy deeply moved me so I really felt that the project would resonate the same way with anyone who heard it. I'm thrilled with the strong response Andrew is receiving from the fans and media and it's so well deserved for this incredibly talented artist."
