Los Angeles, CA – Esteemed producer and multi-hyphenate musical creative, Tommee Profitt, today announced the release of his new album, The Birth of a King, due out Friday, October 16 via Capitol CMG. Featuring an eclectic lineup of guests including internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter Avril Lavigne, R&B artist Stanaj, and singer/songwriter Chris Tomlin, to name a few, the high-concept Christmas album brings Profitt’s cinematic sensibilities and signature genre-bending sound into the realm of holiday music. The self-produced LP spotlights Profitt’s unbridled musicality over the course of seventeen thrillingly grandiose tracks. To watch the album trailer, click HERE, and pre-save the album HERE.

“This is something I’ve wanted to do for the last 15 years, and quarantine finally gave me the time to make it happen,” said Profitt. “I wanted to make a Christmas album that sounds like an epic movie soundtrack, with 808s and a gospel choir and all these incredible singers, and it turned out to be the hardest and most exciting thing I’ve ever worked on.”

“I’m beyond excited to be part of such a special project,” said Stanaj. “When Tommee called me, I knew he had something really special. The goal was to make the best version of the song – ‘Noel (He Is Born)’ – as possible and I think he did just that. This cinematic take on a Christmas classic makes it even more beautiful than ever. I’m grateful for my friendship and this collaboration with Tommee. I can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”

Earlier this summer, the Nashville by-way-of Michigan musician made his debut as a solo recording artist with the release of his single, "Faking Love (ft. Jung Youth & NAWAS)." Highlighting his elaborately detailed, yet undeniably epic take on pop, the darkly-charged track reflects on refusing to live inauthentically for the sake of preserving a failing relationship—a moody tension brilliantly magnified by the merging of its chilling piano tones, high-drama strings, and massively heavy beats. American Songwriter praised the track as a “booming debut effort,” complemented by a “larger-than-life production style with driving rap verses and smooth harmonies.” The equally mesmerizing music video, inspired by Black Mirror, follows the main character as he finds himself plugged into a virtual reality stimulation. Marked by a dystopian sci-fi edge, the video showcases Profitt’s visionary imagination, further revealing the depth of his artistry.

Over the last few years alone, Profitt achieved tremendous success as a producer, songwriter, and award-winning composer for TV and movies, earning accolades for his work with platinum-selling artists like Josh Groban, Migos, Hunter Hayes, and fellow Michigander NF–whose Profitt-produced 2017 single “Let You Down” went five-times platinum, hit #1 on Billboard’s US Mainstream Top 40 chart, and surpassed a billion streams worldwide. With over 200 sync placements in the film, TV, and gaming worlds, he’s also found his music featured everywhere from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 to The Handmaid’s Tale to Apex Legends, while his cover of Linkin Park’s “In The End” (featuring Fleurie) landed on Spotify’s Viral 50 in 23 countries, emerged as the #52 most Shazamed song of 2019, and amassed over 855 million streams.
