Christian recording artist Lauren Daigle's latest album, Look Up Child, which released on Sept. 7, is currently making history with the biggest sales week for a Christian music album in almost nine years, according to Billboard. The news comes after Daigle's latest project debuted at No. 2 on Billboard's Top Album Sales chart, and at No. 3 on Billboard's prestigious Billboard 200 chart.

Describing the heart and story behind her sophomore full-length album, which is the follow-up to her acclaimed 2015 debut How Can It Be, Daigle says it has been in the works for quite some time, but that she is extremely thrilled about the result.

"The studio has become my companion as I have poured all that I can into what is now a body of work I deeply treasure," she says. "From soaring melodies to reggae jive, from sweeping orchestral ballads to back beat vibe, Look Up Child has transcribed the pulse of my veins to musical form. I cannot be more excited for you to hear it."

"From the record to the upcoming live shows, every part of the musical experience will share profound love, deep-rooted joy, and hope like that of a child," she continues. "It's a record you can sit with, one you can fall asleep to, and one that welcomes the inner dancer in all of us onto the scene."

Talking about the upcoming tour, Daigle adds, "The 'Look Up Child Tour' will be surrounded by the spirit of joy and reflection, taking in the sounds of those gone before us while lavishing in the new zeal of today. I look forward to seeing everyone's shining faces out there soon. Until then, cheers to the much awaited new music, Look Up Child!"

The "Look Up Child Tour" will kick off next week on Sept. 27 in Cincinnati, Ohio, before wrapping for the year on Oct. 28 in Jackson, Miss. The tour then resumes on Valentine's Day in 2019 in Seattle, Wash., before concluding on March 18 in Nashville, Tenn. For tickets and more tour information, please click here.
