NEW YORK—June 17, 2016—Fresh off of a packed live recording for his new album in Houston earlier last month in May, with a high-energy night of performing that had the crowd on its feet, award-winning gospel superstar and producer Fred Hammond will deliver his much-anticipated new album WORSHIP JOURNAL LIVE this fall. The album is available for pre-order now at all digital retailers.
Scheduled for release on September 30, 2016 on RCA Inspiration, capturing his first live recording in 17 years, Hammond’s new worship album features 12 tracks filled with the dynamic ministry and acclaimed live musicianship that has made him one of gospel’s most popular and influential artists over the past 30 years, with the new single “Father Jesus Spirit” just released to radio and also available now digitally as an instant grat track with album pre-order. WORSHIP JOURNAL LIVE follows on Hammond’s most recent chart-topping release, the 2014 hit album I Will Trust.
Maintaining a busy schedule throughout the rest of 2016, Hammond will bring his stellar live concert performances to fans across the country, with a national tour kicking off in conjunction with his new album’s release. Helming the Festival of Praise 2016 Tour, the star-studded annual tour he founded, Hammond kicks off the third consecutive year of the Festival of Praise Tour on October 5, 2016 in Las Vegas, NV, welcoming a revolving all-star artist lineup that includes Hezekiah Walker, Israel Houghton, Regina Belle, Karen Clark Sheard, Casey J, and comedian Earthquake. Running through December, Hammond plans to take the Festival of Praise 2016 Tour to over 50 cities, hitting Los Angeles, Denver, Atlanta, New York, Washington DC, Pittsburgh, Austin, his native Detroit, and more.
