Sawyer Fredericks digs deep on his fourth album, Flowers For You -- including one song he wrote when he was 12 years old. But the now 21-year-old Season 8 The Voice champ hopes that the 12-song set, out May 1 and premiering exclusively below, shows growth from both the distant and recent past.
"The goal of this album for me was I wanted to feature the band more on this one," Fredericks, who produced the album himself at Dreamland Recording Studio in Woodstock, tells Billboard. "I feel my last album (2018's Hide Your Ghost) was mainly focused on myself and more emotional lyrics. This time I wanted to get more rock tunes on there and show some of my blues roots. It conveys a little more how we perform when we're live. We have a lot of rockin' tunes when we're live."
