AUDREY ASSAD’S FOURTH SINGLE FROM EVERGREEN,
“WHEN I SEE YOU,” RELEASES TODAY
PledgeMusic Campaign Wraps, Reaches 151% Of Its Goal,
Pledgers Receive Full Album Download Now
Evergreen Releases Everywhere Else Feb. 23
Acclaimed singer, songwriter and author Audrey Assad releases today the fourth single from her first new album of all new songs in four years, Evergreen. The song, “When I See You, as well as “Drawn to You,” “Wounded Healer” and first single, “Deliverer,” are available now at iTunes, Spotify and more digital outlets globally from Fortunate Fall Records with Tone Tree Music distribution.
Highlighted as one of the top “albums to know” about this month by CCM Magazine, with the full album set to release internationally Feb. 23 and available now to preorder at iTunes and Amazon.com, Evergreen stems from a season of renewed creativity for Assad. Forging through the flames of personal pain in the deepest corners of her broken heart, new songs of rebirth, identity, the rebuilding of trust and discovery of joy and love have taken shape.
“I hope that Evergreen is a healing oil in the wounds of whoever comes across it. I am stumbling towards health and wholeness and I desire that for anyone who hears this music,” shares Assad. “I recognize that some of the themes and stylistic choices are perhaps slightly different than where I have been camping as an artist for the past few years—but I am hopeful that it will be a solace and sanctuary for anyone who needs peace and joy in their lives. It has been a labor of hard-won love and emerged from the deepest parts of my spirit.”
In conjunction with today’s release of “When I See You,” Assad premieres the song’s lyric video on her YouTube channel. The video was shot and animated by her husband, William G. Price III, who also created lyric videos for the other three singles mentioned above, including the “Deliverer” lyric video that was premiered by Relevant Magazine. The magazine also completed an Evergreen feature interview with Assad that can be seen at https://relevantmagazine.com/culture/music/audrey-assad-opens-lost-found-faith-new-album/.
The full Evergreen album, including the singles mentioned above, is available for immediate download for everyone who preordered Evergreen through Assad’s PledgeMusic campaign that wrapped up Jan. 25. The campaign hit 151 percent of its goal with five percent of total PledgeMusic campaign proceeds donated to Preemptive Love.
