American Idol Finalist Colton Dixon Prepares For The Release Of Debut Album A Messenger

Set to release his inspiring powerhouse debut album ‘A Messenger’ on 29th January 2013 on EMI-CMG/Sparrow Records, American Idol Season 11 finalist Colton Dixon is already a chart-topping artist via the album’s first two singles, ‘Never Gone’ and ‘You Are’ both of which were released this past Fall.

Heard by more than 360, 000 on last summer’s American Idol Live Tour across the U.S., Colton Dixon’s uplifting power ballad ‘Never Gone’ was an immediate hit digital single, selling 21,000 units its first week and heading straight to #1 on the iTunes Christian & Gospel singles chart, Billboard’s Christian Digital Songs, and Christian/Gospel Digital Songs charts. Colton’s performance of ‘Never Gone’ on the tour marked the first time an Idol contestant has performed that they co-wrote on the annual Idol tour.

‘You Are,’ Colton’s subsequent debut radio single, also hit #1 its first week on the iTunes Christian & Gospel singles chart, Billboard’s Christian Digital Songs, and Christian/Gospel Digital Songs charts. The fiery anthem was selected as USA Today’s Song of the Week upon its digital release in October.

‘A Messenger’ features 11 tracks that showcase the multi-talented singer/songwriter’s trademark balance of vocal tenderness and intensity, his energetic piano playing and, above all, a sense of hope and inspiration.

Track Listing:

  • Noise
  • I’ll Be The Light
  • You Are
  • Never Gone
  • Love Has Come
  • Scars
  • Rise
  • Where My Heart Goes
  • This Is Who I Am
  • In and Out of Time
  • Let Them See You
