Grammy®-Nominated Jeremy Camp Will Release Christmas: God With Us On 09.25
Posted: Wednesday August 1st, 2012
GRAMMY®-nominated and BEC Recordings' artist Jeremy Camp will be releasing a Christmas project this holiday season titled Christmas: God With Us. This is Camp's first full-length Christmas project in his 10 year career, and it will be available on September 25th. Click here to view the album cover and official track listing. The album is produced by Brown Bannister and Ben Shive along with Camp.
Camp's Christmas album is filled with holiday classics as well as the original title track "God With Us". Fans will hear favourites such as "Jingle Bell Rock", "Joy To The World" and "Mary Did You Know". Although these are traditional songs, Jeremy takes a fresh approach to the arrangements on his album.
"I wanted to pick songs that I listened to growing up, and make them my own," shares Camp on the song selection process. "I also selected Christmas carols that my family and I now love to sing each Christmas."
The original track "God With Us" was written after a night of reflection of what Jesus has done for mankind.
"It was amazing to think that our King actually came to this earth and walked among us as human flesh," states Camp. "The lyrics came out as an expression of what I was thinking at that moment."
Camp will be touring this holiday season as a part of The Story tour featuring a full choir and orchestra along with Casting Crowns' Mark Hall, Natalie Grant, Matthew West, Nichole Nordeman and Selah. This tour is a musical journey from Genesis to Revelation and is based off of the special project Camp was a part of that released in 2011. Camp sang "Paul (Move in Me)" on The Story CD. The Story tour will begin in November and conclude in December.
Christmas: God With Us is available for pre-order at your local Canadian Christian retailer. If you do not live near a retailer, you can order it here.
