Gold-selling, Dove Award-winning Christian artist Jordan Feliz reveals that his next full-length album, Say It, is set to release December 18 from Centricity Music. The album includes immediate downloads / streams of “Next To Me,” the Billboard hit song “Glorify” and confessional “Wounds.”
After the release of his very successful sophomore LP, FUTURE, released in 2018, Feliz’s trajectory for the new album was fraught with personal trials. For the artist, success began to feel less like a blessing and more like a burden. Feliz suffered his first panic attack as he and his wife, Jamie, welcomed their second child and as he struggled to carry the weight of the spotlight and the livelihoods of multiple families connected to his career on his shoulders.
“It’s like all your dreams kind of get handed to you, but there’s really no fulfillment in it, and I realized that it was because everything was out of alignment for me,” the singer reveals. “Nothing was in the right place in my heart or in my mind. I felt like I was letting a lot of people down.”
After realigning his priorities and surrendering his anxiety to God, the hitmaker entered the studio to put together his third album, Say It, with a renewed sense of identity and purpose.
“I’ve worked harder for this record than I’ve worked for almost anything in my life,” says Feliz. “With these songs, I want to encourage people to talk more about the beauty and the miracles that God does in our lives when we invite Him into our struggles…this record is all about what God has done in my life.”
Looking to the hope of heaven is a theme that appears throughout the new album. “We were meant to thrive here, but we’re not meant to be here forever,” Feliz asserts. “It’s OK to feel out of place. It’s OK to feel like you’re not OK right now. It’s OK to have all those feelings, because we’re human, and we’re meant for heaven; we were created for that.”
Co-produced by Feliz’s longtime collaborator Colby Wedgeworth and Jordan Mohilowski, Say It blends pop, Gospel and soul while offering some of the artist’s most transparent lyrics to date.
