Various Centricity Music artists (Centricity Music)
There’s nothing like a good Christmas collaboration. Centricity Music artists Jason Gray, Andrew Peterson, Jonny Diaz, Unspoken and Downhere and new artists Lauren Daigle and Carrollton have created Christmas: Joy to the World.
This is the third Christmas multi-artist album the label has released, with the other two debuting in 2007 and 2010.
Three singles from the album have already been released on the radio: Unspoken’s “Feliz Navidad,” “Light of the World” by Lauren Daigle and “Asleep in the Hay” by Jonny Diaz.
“Christmas is such an emotional time for Christians,” says Steve Ford, vice president of marketing at Centricity Music. “It is a time of joy and reflection, love and thanks. [The album] covers the gamut of feelings, and that is reflected in the music on our Christmas release.”
The album includes three previously released songs: Downhere’s Christmas classic “How Many Kings,” Jason Gray’s “Joy to the World” and Andrew Peterson’s “Long, Long Ago,” which was featured on Bethlehem Skyline Vol. 2., Centricity’s second Christmas album. New artists Daigle and Carrollton will release full-length albums in 2014.
