by Audrey Assad
Released: Feb 2012
Her 2010 debut landed on many year-end “best of” lists (including ours), and this Feb. 14 release is a quirky Valentine that continues to showcase Audrey’s heady songwriting and spiritual depth. This sophomore project finds Assad returning to some familiar collaborators like producer Marshall Altman as well as songwriters Brooke Fraser, Natasha Bedingfield, Matt Maher, Derek Webb and Marc Broussard. The track “Sparrow” is a beautiful reworking of the old hymn “His Eye Is On the Sparrow,” featuring a fresh, new melody. Overall, Heart is a courageously raw record that lets listeners inside.
