Today, Dove award nominee Audrey Assad releases her latest EP titled Eden. The EP features 6 tracks, including the title track, which can be heard below.
Assad’s music has always been drawn from a well deep with personal experience and discovery. With each new release, she gives listeners an honest look at the seasonal highs and lows of what has turned out to be a layered and complex spiritual journey. The result is a bravely authentic, confessional approach to writing songs about God, a style which has never been on brighter display than with Assad’s newest project, the highly anticipated Eden (Fortunate Fall Records/Tone Tree Music).
Eden places Assad’s stand-out songwriting into a sonic space as lush and warm as the garden from which the record gets its name. Texturing eclectic pop shimmer with organic, earthy depth, the record is a front-to-back look at what makes Assad’s writing so compelling; she sees the spiritual in the natural, and sets it to music. Her bright, airy vocals lie effortlessly on top of rich soundscapes. Wild imagery meshes seamlessly with glimmering synth lines. Or, as Audrey herself puts it, “birdsong and quivering strings meet drum machines.”
