We love Steven Curtis Chapman’s new Christmas album “Joy.” I have been blaring it in my car every time I need a little Christmas pick-me-up. We want to make sure that you don’t miss out on the videos that Steven Curtis is releasing to go along with this wonderful album. But first, here is a little more about “Joy.”
When it comes to Christmas, Steven Curtis Chapman might as well be eight-years-old all over again. Usually wearing his favorite Charlie Brown t-shirt and perpetually ready to launch into one of his favorite tunes, Chapman has never outgrown the wonder of the season each year as the world celebrates the birth of our Savior. That childlike faith and hopeful sense of expectancy reverberate throughout his new Christmas collection, simply and aptly titled Joy.
“After recording re:creation, I wasn’t quite sure what next step to take in my creative journey. I started exploring the idea of writing and arranging some new Christmas music…I think that I just started remembering my childhood and then really celebrating my family. Even as hard as things have been, and as bittersweet as it relates to things like celebrations and holidays, we have begun to experience that the sweet is starting to trump the bitter for us more and more each year,” says Chapman, referencing the tragic death of five-year old daughter Maria Sue in 2008.
Joy features six new songs and seven classics. One of the vintage sounding tracks that harkens back to those 50’s feeling albums is the debut single to radio, “Christmas Time Again.” – Excerpt from Official Bio (Media Collective)
