in march of 2003, i released my first solo album entitled she must & shall go free. the title is an emphatic statement about the liberation and ultimate security of the people of god — the church — taken from the last line of a 175-year-old hymn written by william gadsby. she must & shall go free was an album born from questions. as i approached this 10 year anniversary i began to wonder what the album would have looked like if i were writing it today, exploring the relationships between the church, the culture and myself. i wondered about the observations, encouragements, criticisms and confessions i would discover if i asked these same questions 10 years later. what was initially nothing more than personal reminiscing and reflection quickly became the coordinates that led me to a new collection of songs — essentially a follow-up to my first album of 10 years ago.
the result is my new album. i was wrong, i’m sorry & i love you feels like a return to strength, a rest from running, and an encouraging start to what i hope to be 10 more years of “afflicting the comfortable and comforting the afflicted,” starting, as always, with myself. – Derek Webb
