Bowyer & Bow / Capitol Christian Music Group artist, Pat Barrett announces the upcoming release of his sophomore studio project, Act Justly, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly, on February 26th. This album features 17 tracks including four songs released in 2020 (“Canvas and Clay,” “Lightning (ft. Harolddd),” “No Weapon,” and “Heavenly”). The pre-order for the new album is available now, along with the title track. The single, “Act Justly, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly,” will be going for adds at radio on March 19th. Today (Feb 5), Barrett premieres a live video for the title track, which can be viewed below.
“I made a promise to myself years ago to only share songs that have helped me in some way,” shares Pat Barrett. “For this album, I have tried to stay true to that promise. Act Justly, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly…Act, love, walk….for me, these have been the songs that touch every area of my life. The songs that have helped ‘make sense’ of things, and also the songs that have helped set the table of communion when not much has made sense at all. Some songs are about matters of the heart and some songs are matter of fact about how things aren’t the way they should be. It felt important to include both. In a lot of ways I see this collection as an invitation to abide in God, but also an invitation to change. The type of change that happens when you audit your soul and don’t like what you find. These are the songs I’ve sung at the top of my lungs on Sunday and under my breath on Monday. Songs about faith, hope, love, marriage, kids, questions, regret, moving on…and for me, all of it worship. So I’ve decided to keep all of it on this project.”
This new album was recorded over the span of two years and highlight Barrett as a worship leader as well as an artist/songwriter. The album also features guest artists such as Chris Tomlin on “As For Me” and Harolddd on “Lightning.” Accompanying the studio project will be specially recorded live videos released over the next few months with appearances including Mack Brock, Chris Tomlin, Jon Reddick and Franni Rae Cash of We The Kingdom.
