NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Embracing a welcome return to his singer/songwriter roots, Dove Award nominated artist, producer and author Andrew Greer is celebrating the chart-topping debut of his first solo recording in more than a decade. Songs From The Dark reached the #1 position on Apple Music’s prestigious Singer/Songwriter Top Albums chart following its February release, ahead of projects from such genre giants as Carole King, James Taylor, Tracy Chapman and Stephen Sanchez. 
 
Selections from the Old Bear Records album have also been spotlighted on a range of noted playlists to date, including Apple Music’s Inspired Chill and Today’s Christian; Pandora’s Today’s Tunesmiths & Troubadours and New Christian Music Now; and the Gospel Music Association’s GMA New Music Friday.
 
Featuring eight tracks penned or co-penned by Greer and produced by Kyle Buchanan (Lynda Randle, Cindy Morgan), Songs From The Dark elevates themes of peace and hope birthed from seasons of pain and doubt. Hallmarked by organic, uncluttered arrangements, album opener “Rescue Me,” a cry for liberty from selfish ambition, sets the project's overarching tone: “When the tide of pride sweeps me into the deep dark sea/Will You set Your sails of love and come and rescue me?
 
Additional highlights of Songs From The Dark include“Mercy,” a petition for healing and grace featuring GRAMMY-nominated, Dove Award-winning singer/songwriter Cindy Morgan; and the gentle, assuring lilt of “For Love,” showcasing evocative harmonies from lauded singer/songwriter Skye Peterson. 
 
“It has been a long season since I last released a record that was marked by just me and the piano keys underneath my fingertips or my guitar tucked up against my chest with an arch of a melody and some lines I had hidden away,” Greer shares. “I waited for the season where I would find space to offer up whatever I had to music—and eventually to others. I finally found it, and those songs became Songs From The Dark.”
 
“These notes and words have been waiting to move me into new communities, or deeper into the ones I know,” he adds of the album. “They are a featherbed for my regrets with unrestrained hope, and they have set a table for me to be at home, to be at peace. To be with God. I hope these songs serve to guide others’ stories as well—that they can find a place of belonging, a seat at the table, and a tilt towards the Light.”
 
In celebration of the album's release, Greer was invited to curate an exclusive playlist for Pandora. The Joy of Being Sad features multiple spoken word tracks from Greer and three Songs From The Dark selections, as well as cuts from Emmylou Harris, Sixpence None the Richer, Tim McGraw and Marc Scibilia, among others.

Songs From The Dark is also available as a limited edition CD at andrew-greer.com and featuresthe exclusive bonus track “Midnight Of These Things.”
