Jordan Smith’s post-The Voice career is about to hit its strides.
The popular singer, who took out Season 9 of the TV talent show, has just announced his album debut Something Beautiful, the first through a newly-forged collaboration with Republic Records and Lightworkers Media.
Smith has been working in the studio with hitmakers David Foster and Stephan Moccio on his forthcoming LP. Moccio, who is nominated for a Grammy this weekend and an Oscar next week, produced the lead single “Stand in the Light” which drops today. Listen to the track below.
“When you hear Jordan Smith’s beautiful debut album Something Beautiful you will be transported.” said executive producers Roma Downey and Mark Burnett of Lightworkers Media in a statement. “These amazing song choices combined with his beautiful voice will take you on a heartfelt and hope filled emotional journey. It is our hope that you allow this special album from this extraordinary young man to wash over you and renew your spirit.”
Smith proved to be a sales champion over the course of his successful campaign in The Voice. The artist is the show’s biggest seller, with 1.2 million tracks sold to date and 50,000 albums sold of his Voice compilation CD Jordan Smith: The Complete Season 9 Collection. He was also the first artist from any season of The Voice to hit the iTunes top 10 every single week of the Live Rounds, with a total of eight songs in the top 10 on the iTunes chart, and he made history on the Hot Christian Songs chart.
Details of Smith’s new album release come on the heels of a new worldwide management deal struck with Sam Feldman and Steve Macklam of Macklam Feldman Management.
Something Beautiful is scheduled for release March 18.
