Crystal Padilla Music’s Beauty In The Waiting Album Is Now Available on iTunes
Crystal Padilla Music’s new Beauty In The Waiting album was scheduled to be released digitally last Friday. Unfortunately, due to an issue with their distributor that was out of the band’s control, that did not happen. We said we’d share with you as and when the album became available on iTunes and we’re pleased to bring you that news now! You can now buy Beauty In The Waiting on iTunes here.
The press release about the new album is directly below, and the album’s promo video can be seen at the end of the article.
Atlanta-based band, Crystal Padilla Music, will release their new EP on October 9, titled Beauty In the Waiting. The first single, “River of Life (Psalm 1)”, will impact Christian radio later in October. The project will be available for purchase in all major digital music stores and at the group’s live events.
The band’s second EP offers a collection of well-crafted songs that center on both the desire and need for a genuine relationship with Jesus Christ. As the title suggests, Beauty In the Waiting also explores moments of doubt and struggle; and how crisis can often serve as a catalyst for growth, strength, and faith.
“Authentic,” lead singer Crystal Padilla says when asked to describe the new record. “It’s authentic because at the heart of this album it reflects and sums up a lot of what the band as a whole, and as individuals, have experienced in the past three years. We tried to create songs that people can relate to. Songs with meaning and that could speak to the heart in different ways every time you listen to them. We were not trying to be something we aren’t. We just wanted to be real and share our hearts with people through song.”
Produced by Riley Friesen, best known for his work with Family Force 5, Beauty In the Waiting marks CPM’s first collection of songs written solely in English. In contrast to the group’s notable 2012 bilingual debut, La Roca EP, Beauty In the Waiting displays an apparent maturity in lyrical content, musicianship, and creativity. The band plans to eventually re-release Beauty In the Waiting fully translated in Spanish.
