Lecrae’s New Album and Summer Tour
Written by Christi Given | August 17, 2017
If you’re looking for something fun to do before the summer ends, check out #1 Billboard 200 chart artist Lecrae this summer for his new album release and tour.
Recently, Forbes did an interview with Lecrae, who is one of our favorite artists and is on the brink of merging into the secular world out of Christian hip-hop (if he hasn’t already merged into mainstream media in some ways).
Lecrae’s fourth official album and tour is called All Things Work Together. His album is expected to drop this September and is highly anticipated in both the Christian world of music and even the secular. It has some features with artists like Ty Dolla $ign, T-Minus, Tori Kelly and more!
Lecrae just signed with Columbia Records, according to Billboard, and this is his first official album with the label, so let us keep Lecrae in prayer as he reaches the masses with his music and positive messages.
Premiere Productions said: “Lecrae relishes his purpose-driven career arc as inspired ‘catalyzer’—going ‘from artist to architect’ on the new album, widening the close-knit comfort zone of Reach Records (the label he co-founded) by partnering with Columbia Records and expanding his creative outreach. ‘I sought influences and collaborators I never imagined I’d have the opportunity to work with,’ he says. The patient growth process was born out of a ‘gumbo’ of more than 50 songs, ‘some to just get off my chest,’ he says—’I don’t know if they were all meant to be heard, but I know they were meant to be written.’”
Premiere Productions also mentioned that Lecrae’s song collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign was chosen for the iHeartRadio selection “for their ‘On the Verge’ platform which connects breaking artists with new listeners.”
Some songs off the new album are “I’ll Find You” (featuring Tori Kelly),” “Blessings” (featuring Ty Dolla $ign) and “Can’t Stop Me Now.”
Watch Tori Kelly and Lecrae’s collaboration (two of my top favorite artists) below!
Lecrae will be kicking off his summer tour with music festivals. He’ll be in Alaska on August 29; with breakout artist Gawvi in Florida at the “Rock the Universe” concert on September 9; at the LouFest in St. Louis, Missouri, on September 10; and more!
