LOS ANGELES (May 17, 2019) – Little did Billboard No. 1 Selling Singer/Songwriter and Actor Anthony Evans know when he was in the studio working on his highly-anticipated new album Altared, releasing today, May 17, 2019 by Sherman James Productions, that the songs he was writing and recording to encourage his fans would come to so profoundly minister peace to him.
Evans’ music has always possessed an unflinching authenticity. In the wake of the recent, sudden passings of his aunt, uncle, and cousin, and the unexpected news about his mother’s health, Evans is leaning on his faith and family more than ever as he taps into the spiritual yearnings to find an inner spiritual and personal peace during this season of his life. While he recorded the new 11-track album that features the NBC The Voice alumnus re-imagining top worship songs and recording heartfelt originals prior to much of the family news, he readily admits the healing power of the lyrics on the new project are especially significant in light of recent events, particularly the debut single, “Fighting For Us.”
“God is on our journey with us daily and He’s fighting for our well-being, no matter if we hear a ‘no,’ ‘yes’ or ‘maybe,’” said Anthony. “He’s literally fighting for you and with you on your journey where you are. It’s not when you get it together, it’s where you are currently. I’ve experienced growth when I realized that, no matter where I am God is with and right next to me on the journey...fighting for me daily. That started to alter the way that I viewed my relationship with the Lord. That’s what this song stated and I wanted that to be the message of this album.”
With his unmatched vocal stylings, Evans delivers a unique and powerful full-length worship album. The heartfelt “Hope is Alive” and new single are coupled with innovative, re-imagined, and ‘altared’ versions of some of the most popular songs in the modern church including, “What A Beautiful Name,” “Great Are You Lord,” and “Who You Say I Am.” Joined by Grammy ® Award-Winning Producer Max Stark, pop producer Bert Elliott and an all-star team of singers and musicians, Evans shapes an innovative project that’s stacked with soulful and gospel influences, R&B and hip hop flavors, periodic programming, uncluttered arrangements, crisp production and an all-around progression.
Evans, via his own production company, Sherman James Productions, is also making his music and ministry more mobile. In tandem with his sister, best-selling author/actress Priscilla Shirer, Evans will set out on the “FerVent 2.0” outing. Each night, faithful expressions from his new album Altared will be joined with messages from Priscilla’s upcoming movie Overcomer. The highly-anticipated tour kicked off the first of 16 shows in Tyler, Texas on May 15.
Anthony Evans’ new album Altared is available through all digital retailers and exclusively via Lifeway Christian Resources today.
