Several Christian and Gospel artists have new albums releasing this October. Though many uplifting records will be available, we’ve highlighted a few in particular below you might enjoy listening to this month.
10/6 – Jeremy Camp – The Answer
Jeremy Camp’s new record, The Answer, is his 11th studio album. Its first single, “Word of Life,” released earlier this year and hit no. 15 on the U.S. Christian charts. The Grammy-winner is also releasing five songs with corresponding videos from the 11-track album before it officially drops Oct. 6. Camp says the record is full of songs from the Lord that continue to “speak to different seasons of life” even after all these years.
10/13 – John Tibbs – Heartland
John Tibbs is an up-and-coming independent artist following up his 2016 album, Dead Man Walking, with Heartland on Oct. 13. The singer has released three singles off the record so far, including the title track and another featuring Christian singer/songwriter Sandra McCracken called “Shepherd.” His powerful, raspy vocals and honest lyrics are refreshing, but he keeps intact the familiar structure that allows anyone to join in and worship with him.
