Natalie Grant has just released her eighth full-length album, Hurricane. Since May, when its lead single and title song shot to number one on iTunes within hours of its release and exploded onto Billboard and MediaBase charts, fans have been anticipating the release of this album.
Grant’s website says that Hurricane is a project which is woven together by songs that offer listeners a greater sense of encouragement. Grant wrote on eight out of the 10 tracks on the album, using her real-life experiences and, for the first-time, voicing her struggle with post-partum depression, her feelings of inadequacy in parenting, and her feelings of guilt in trying to balance work, family, motherhood, and faith.
Says Grant,“I’ve journeyed through a lot over the past three years. This record is full of my stories and is a reminder that no matter how dark the struggle may seem, I am not alone. And through writing these songs, I’ve been reminded that hope always wins.” She adds, “This record is full of music that is positive and bright, both musically and lyrically, which is almost the antithesis to how I have felt for the last few years, but it is the result of hope and faith.” Grant continues, “Even when everything seems dark, my faith keeps the light on. I feel these songs help me to tell that truth in a fresh way.”
The album is available for purchase now at iTunes and other fine retailers. To keep up with Grant, you can like her on Facebook, follow her on Twitter and Instagram, and subscribe to her YouTube channel. Also, you can enjoy the official video below for Grant’s new single, “In the End,” below…
