Award-winning artist and songwriter David Crowder released his first solo effort Tuesday with an exclusive live iTunes session. Recorded at the storied Capitol Records Studio in Hollywood, Crowder: iTunes® Session delivers nine stripped down, organic tracks to many of Crowder’s most loved originals. The live session includes hit songs such as “How He Loves,” “O Praise Him," “No One Like You” and "Let Me Feel You Shine," as well as a brand new recording by Crowder of the classic hymn “The Old Rugged Cross," first performed at a Good Friday gathering at Passion City Church in Atlanta, Ga.
In an intimate behind-the-scenes video, Crowder shares his heart: “What I love about music is that a song can be in different packages or different environments, but the heart of it, the thing that connects to a person to it, is still present. For these songs to have new skin on them and have these beautiful new voices contributing to them is a really beautiful moment.”
The iTunes® session is Crowder's first project following the final David Crowder Band release earlier this year, Give Us Rest (A Requiem Mass in C [The Happiest of All Keys]), which entered the Billboard Top 200 chart at No. 2 and gave the band their highest debut in their 12-year career.
“This session really captures the moment of letting go of the past and looking toward the future,” Crowder said. “There’s a rawness and openness with the rediscovery of these songs and this project, and it makes me so excited.”
