5 Must-Have Christian Albums Releasing in June

Upcoming albums

Summer is almost here. On the way to usher in the warmer months are some of the hottest Christian releases.  Coming by way of veterans include modern hymn writers Keith & Kristyn Getty, singer and songwriter Jason Gray, and hit makers Switchfoot.  Most suprisingly, country music stawarts Anne Murray and Ray Stevens will both continue to serve Christian offerings.


Arriving on June 17 is the brand new long-awaited album by Jason Gray.  Where the Light Gets In, is a stirring weave of sorrow, light, hope, and even of celebration. The sonic cohesiveness of the thirteen-song project is nonetheless remarkable, considering the tracks were built simultaneously by nine different producers (Jason Ingram, Ben Glover, & others) with one or two songs apiece. Jason's new radio single, "Sparrows", went for early adds on K-Love, Sirius XM, among others with an official add date of 4/1 and is climbing the NCA charts. 

TRACK LISTING 01. Learning 02. Sparrows 03. I Will Rise Again 04. Stolen 05. Resurrection 06. More Yours 07. Death Without A Funeral 08. The Wound Is Where The Light Gets In 09. Where We Go From Here 10. Learning To Be Found 11. Glow In The Dark 12. Celebrate 13. Thank You For Everything 


Switchfoot has achieved a level of success that brothers Jon and Tim Foreman and their high-school friend Chad Butler never anticipated when forming the band in San Diego in 1996. The SoCal natives have sold 5.7 million copies worldwide of their nine studio albums, racked up a string of radio hit singles, performed sold-out world tours, raised over $1 million dollars to aid kids in their community through their own Bro-Am Foundation, and earned themselves a global fan base devoted to Switchfoot's emotionally intelligent and uplifting brand of alternative rock. 

For the first time in ten years Switchfoot worked with The Beautiful Letdown producer John Fields on their 10th album arriving on June 8, Where The Light Shines Through, and loved every minute of it. Moving forward inevitably means looking back, and there was a lot of nostalgia flowing through the studio, looking at old photos, and remembering the moments that made The Beautiful Letdown so special. This time they are harnessing that urgency to access their purest instincts, while also taking the time to push each other further than ever... finding their roots, and planting them in places they've never seen before.
