Gospel music’s No. 1 flower child Casey J is dropping two digital deluxe incarnations of her best-selling debut album “The Truth.” On May 13 The Truth (Continues) (Marquis Boone Enterprises/Tyscot Records) deluxe and deluxe video editions of the album will go live in the iTunes Store and on digital service providers everywhere.
The original “The Truth” project debuted at No. 1 on Billboard Magazine’s Gospel Albums chart last Spring and has spent over 52 non-consecutive weeks on the chart.
Aside from the dozen songs that comprised the original project, the deluxe version also includes the previously unreleased tracks “You Are Good,” “Beyond The Veil” and “Journal (Intro).” The deluxe video edition includes those elements and the concept music video of Casey J’s radio smash “I’m Yours” – a rousing anthem that recently rested at No. 1 on Billboard Magazine’s Gospel Airplay chart for five weeks.
It’s been an astounding two years for the former Atlanta-area elementary school teacher who has become one of the most popular artists on today’s gospel music landscape. Casey J’s inaugural radio single “Fill Me Up” spent fourteen weeks atop Billboard’s Gospel Airplay chart and was swiftly followed by the success of “I’m Yours.” This past February, Casey J also won her first Stellar Gospel Music Award as New Artist of the Year.
Chris Carter produced the live session alongside Korey Bowie with Rick Watford, who’s played guitar on sessions for artists as diverse as Dorothy Norwood and R&B crooner Will Downing, supervised the acoustic rock-flavored band. The earthy, organic melodic worship service was done before a standing room only audience at the Fresh Start Church in Duluth, Georgia where Casey J serves as the Sunday morning worship leader.
