Album’s debut single “All That Matters” available now
Nashville, Tenn. (January 13, 2017) — Colton Dixon’s third studio album Identity is set to release March 24, as announced yesterday on Billboard. Varying stylistically from previous releases, Identity will blend Dixon’s traditional alternative-rock sound with pop elements, delivering a number of upbeat, danceable tracks.
“I think this is the most fun I’ve had making an album,” Dixon told Billboard, who also exclusively premiered the lyric video for the album’s debut single “All That Matters,” available for purchase today. At radio now, key stations nationwide are jumping on the single, in addition to an immediate add by K-LOVE.
“Our identity isn’t in our past or our careers. It’s not in our successes or failures,” Dixon said, sharing the heart behind the song. “Our identity lies in something much bigger than ourselves, and that’s what really counts.”
Fans can hear Dixon perform the new single and more on tour with Winter Jam now through April.
Identity follows Dixon’s latest release ANCHOR, which featured No. 1 hits “More Of You” and “Through All Of It,” and earned a 2015 Dove Award for Rock/Contemporary Album of the Year.
