Crowder Announces New Album & Releases “- [DASH]” With TobyMac

Grammy-nominated multi-instrumentalist Crowder announces ‘The EXILE,’ due May 31 via sixstepsrecords/Capitol Christian Music Group. Incredibly perceptive and timely, the twelve tracks make up the second album in a three-part trilogy that started with ‘Milk & Honey’ (March 2022).

Today (4.5), the album’s second released track “— [DASH]” featuring TobyMac is available everywhere. The lyrics in “— [DASH]” explore the gravity and prospect of that little line between the dates of birth and death on a gravestone. The time-old reflection is set to electronic-fused beats, stamped with a feature from TobyMac. Listen to “ [DASH] (w/TobyMac)” here.

Two tracks — “Grave Robber,” which is Top 5 at CCM radio and climbing, and “— [DASH]” lead this chapter of ‘The EXILE.’ Recorded in conjunction with GRAMMY Award Winning producer team Ben Glover and Jeff Sojka, this record ranges from traditional bluegrass instruments to innovative urban beats; clever, intricate musicianship to quirky sonic elements; the creativity is enjoyable and compelling. ‘The EXILE’ is a recipe for a genre-bending revival.

The album features GRAMMY-Award winning Buddy Miller on a track titled “All My Tears,” a song originally recorded by Julie Miller and Emmylou Harris.

The full collection is a journey, boasting more traditional-laden songs like “STILL” and “Somebody Prayed”, while also featuring “Lord of All,” “Rinsed in the Blood” and “Unstoppable,” which pushes production boundaries in all of the right ways.  Pre-order ‘The Exile’ here

The Texas native headlined Winter Jam this year, and he is set to cap the bill at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in August. He also will be touring with MercyMe as part of the “Together Again… Again Tour” this Fall, and Crowder will headline the “Air1 Tour” in November.
