The new Josh Gracin album Redemption – his first from indie label Average Joe’s Entertainment – hits stores this Tuesday, November 8th.
“The album is 100 percent my interpretation, 100 percent my idea of what I wanted the record to be,” Gracin explains. “Just in that alone, it’s going to sound different than anything else I’ve done.”
Redemption features tracks “Long Way to Go” which reached the Top 20 on the Adult Contemporary charts, “Catastrophe,” where Josh teamed up with another Idol alum and winner of Season 2, Ruben Studdard, and “Can’t Say Goodbye,” an incredibly touching song based on the true story and continuing effort of war widow, Seana Arrechaga, to keep her husband’s memory alive. “Can’t Say Goodbye” was written for the Sears Heroes At Home initiative with all proceeds of single sales going to their efforts to support military service members, veterans, and their families.
Gracin co-produced Redemption with his long-time drummer, Kevin Murphy. All tracks, excluding a cover of John Mayer’s “Edge of Desire,” were either written or co-written by Gracin.
