NASHVILLE, TENN. (FEBRUARY 14, 2020) Multi-Award Winning singer/songwriter Matthew West releases his new studio project, Brand New, as his first album on Provident Label Group/Sony Music and his imprint Story House Music. Brand New is available here. The debut radio single, "The God Who Stays," is already a No. 1 hit on the AC Indicator chart and continues to climb the National Christian Audience chart where it landed at No. 3 this week. This song was the first song of six songs that West has shared over the last few months from the 14-track project. The official music video has also impacted his audience already hitting more than 5.4 million views. 
 
Even a Dove-award winning, Grammy-nominated Christian artist can feel distanced from that moment they become 'brand new' in Christ, which is largely what inspired West’s new album, where he addresses the question every believer asks at some point on his or her Christian journey: When I feel far away from my brand new moment, can I go back to it?
 
Many of the tracks on Brand New strike a balance between addressing the pain and reality of life while offering hope. They bring a message that West has been writing since the beginning of his career. West also strikes a balance between personal songs based on his faith experience and songs written in response to others’ stories.
 
“I almost feel like a new artist,” he says, “but with the experience of a veteran. I think that could be a recipe for being in a sweet spot in any field—to have the fire of the new and the experience. …I like to think that I’m getting closer and closer to the most authentic version of me as a communicator and me as a songwriter, but hopefully most of all, me as a person.”  




West has celebrated his release taping special performances and interviews over the last few weeks. The special on Sirius XM, The Message - Delivered Live: Matthew West, aired last weekend. Other media that have touted this release include Billboard MagazineGuideposts, CCM Magazine, and the Annie Downs That Sounds Fun Podcast.
 
He will head out on tour this spring with label-mates Casting Crowns on the "Only Jesus" tour beginning next month on March 5th. Click here for his current tour dates. He will also return to the Grand Ole Opry next week on February 21st for a performance.
