Singer-songwriter Pat Barrett's upcoming full-length, self-titled solo debut album, Pat Barrett, is now available for pre-order ahead of its release on July 20 on Bowyer & Bow. The 12-track project features a powerful collection of worship songs, along with radio-friendly tracks such as the album's lead single "The Way (New Horizon)," which is currently No. 12 on Billboard's Christian Airplay chart with an audience in excess of 4.4 million.
"I'm excited to have a song that's singing Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life and that also acknowledges doubt and fear, without giving it the platform," shares Barrett about his first single from the new album, which is the follow-up to his self-titled EP that released in April.
Best known as a worship leader and recording artist with the Atlanta-based worship collective Housefires, Barrett already has a celebrated 15-year career behind him. However, the upcoming album marks the first time he has released anything as a solo artist.
"I've always written songs. I've put out records. But not this way," says Pat Barrett. "This feels new."
Earlier this summer, BREATHEcast reported that Grammy-winning artist Chris Tomlin and Barrett was awarded the RIAA's Platinum certification for the chart-topping single, "Good Good Father," which Barrett co-wrote. The single has been performed by numerous artists, yet it was Tomlin's recording that took the song to No. 1 at radio.
Extending their collaboration beyond just music, Barrett and Tomlin in 2016 co-authored the children's book "Good Good Father." Currently, Barrett is the flagship artist on Tomlin's imprint record label Bowyer & Bow, in partnership with Capitol Music Group, with Barrett's EP and the upcoming album featured as the imprint's first releases.
Following his spring run on "Worship Night in America," Barrett is joining Tomlin again on the "Good Good Father Tour" visiting Canada this fall.
