Popular US Christian singer/songwriter Bethany Dillon, the young star who released her 2004 self-titled debut album to critical acclaim at the age of 15, returns 3 April with her third studio project, Waking Up.
Led by first single “The Kingdom”, Waking Up is said to reflect Dillon’s artistic and spiritual growth. Now 18, Dillon is beginning to experience her faith in profound new ways.
After a recent mission trip to India, she said, “I feel like God is widening my eyes as I’m walking in this new season.”
Produced by Ed Cash (Chris Tomlin), John Alagia (John Mayer, Dave Matthews), and Will Hunt (Shane & Shane), Waking Up includes standout songs “Something There”, “You Could Be The One”, “When You Love Someone”, “Beggar’s Heart”, and “Top Of The World”.
Pre-promoting the disc, Bethany will embark on a 20-date college tour with Robbie Seay Band through February and March.
In other news, Dillon has also contributed to a couple of new movie related albums, singing “All Creatures Of Our God And King” with Shawn McDonald on Music Inspired By the Motion Picture Amazing Grace, and contributes to the Bridge to Terabithia original soundtrack, which also includes performances by television stars Miley Cyrus (Disney Channel’s Hannah Montana) and Hayden Panettiere (NBC’s Heroes).
