Colton Dixon Releases New Studio Album Anchor

Capitol CMG Dove Award-winning artist and Season 11 American Idol finalist Colton Dixon has announced the 19th August release of his sophomore studio album, ‘Anchor’.

“I’m beyond excited to share what I’ve been up to since ‘A Messenger’. We’ve explored new territory, new sounds, and new topics for the record, and my hope is that at the end of it all, you feel closer to God than you did when you pressed play.”

‘Anchor,’ has been in the works for the last year as he wrote and recorded in-between his nonstop touring schedule. He strived to take this album in a different direction, experimenting with new sounds as well as steering the lyrics in a more thematic route. ‘Anchor’ was produced by David Garcia (TobyMac, Mandisa, Newsboys) and Red Decibel (Switchfoot, Kelly Clarkson, Jeremy Camp). He also co-wrote with renowned songwriters and artists such as David Garcia, Red Decibel, TobyMac, Trevor McNevan (TFK), Matthew West, Ben Glover and Matt Bronleewe.

This project comes on the heels of a best-selling and record-breaking album debut in 2013 with the release of ‘A Messenger’. Dixon’s full-length debut set the largest first week sales by a new solo Christian artist making it the top album sold in that market. He was also the No. 22 best-selling New Artist across all genres, and ‘A Messenger’ was the ninth top selling physical CD sold in all genres in 2013.

Last year, Dixon also toured relentlessly as he performed in front of more than 500,000 fans and already this year he was a part of the Winter Jam Tour, the world’s largest first quarter tour. At this year’s end, he will have performed in front of more than 800,000 people. In addition to touring non-stop, he was also nominated for three Dove awards and winning one for “Best Contemporary Rock Album” and received a nomination a K-LOVE Fan Award in the Male Artist of the Year category.
