Nashville, TN - (April 15, 2014) -Beginning today, fans can stream GRAMMY®-nominated artist Francesca Battistelli's third studio album, If We're Honest, exclusively as a First Play on iTunes Radio at http://smarturl.it/fbfirstplay. With the stream, fans will have their first and only opportunity to hear the album from Christian music's best-selling new artist in the past 10 years in its entirety before its release on April 22. Battistelli's two previous albums, My Paper Heart and Hundred More Years, hit No. 1 on Billboard's Christian Albums chart and garnered her a GRAMMY® nomination and five Dove Awards including the prestigious "Artist of the Year" honors. On February 13, Battistelli made her national morning television debut performing the album's lead single and current No. 3 hit, "Write Your Story," on ABC's "Good Morning America."

Produced by GRAMMY®-nominated and Dove Award-winning producer and Battistelli's longtime collaborator Ian Eskelin, If We're Honest reveals her most intimate and accomplished musical statement yet and showcases her trademark pop and soul-infused sound. The deluxe version of her forthcoming album is currently available for pre-order at iTunes here http://smarturl.it/ifwerehonest. It features four bonus tracks - "Holy Spirit," "Keeping Score," "I Am Home" and "Tonight (Feat. All Sons & Daughters)" - and instant downloads of "Write Your Story," "When The Crazy Kicks In" and "He Knows My Name."

Since her debut in 2008, Francesca Battistelli has earned a GRAMMY® nomination (Best Gospel Performance), six Dove Awards and 22 Dove Award nominations. Both her debut album, My Paper Heart (certified gold in 2012), and her 2011 sophomore release, Hundred More Years, took the No. 1 spot on Billboard's Christian Album chart. With over 995,000 in album sales to date and over 1.9 million single downloads, she is the best-selling new artist in the genre in the past decade. Her music has also been featured on TriStar Picture's "Soul Surfer," Columbia Picture's "Julie and Julia," TLC's "Jon & Kate Plus 8," ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," NBC's "The Biggest Loser," Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance," and several other television and movie outlets.
