Audrey Assad releases "Deliverer"
Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Audrey Assad releases "Deliverer" today, the first single from her third independent album. Written, produced and engineered by Assad and Bryan Brown, mixed by Chad Howat of Paper Route, the single is now available at digital retailers globally from Fortunate Fall Records with Tone Tree Music distribution.
Her forthcoming album, Evergreen, is set to be released internationally on 23rd February 2018. The album brings with it a new light of creativity, littered with songs of her experience forging through personal pain, songs of rebirth, identity, the rebuilding of trust and discovery of joy and love.
"I grew up with some rather terrible and terrifying ideas about who God was. Mostly, I believed that God only loved me because Jesus stepped in between us and God couldn't see me anymore--this contributed to many years of a tormented and broken-down relationship with God, based mostly in fear and shame," reveals Assad. "Imagine the deep healing that took place when I came to recognize that Jesus came not to defend us from God, but to display in His life, death and resurrection exactly who God has always been. Jesus is often called 'Immanuel,' which means 'God with us.'
"When I looked at the ruins in my heart, I found Him there 'preaching His gospel to the poor,'" Assad continues, quoting Thomas Merton and lyrics to "Deliverer." "He had been with me and within me all along, delivering me not from God, but from my own inner death."
