Stephen Christian has announced the title and more imaging from Wildfires, his debut solo project, scheduled to release in the coming months. He made the announcement via a facebook post.
You might know him as the soaring voice behind the late, great rock act Anberlin, and possibly as the brains behind the moody and eclectic Anchor & Braille. Now Stephen Christian is getting ready for you to hear a different side of his musical soul.
Wildfires will release through BEC Recordings, a wing of Tooth & Nail Records, the label that Anberlin called home both at the start and completion of their run. Billed by Christian during the recording process as a worship record (in keeping with his role on staff with a church in Albequerque, New Mexico), the album promises to be one of the most highly anticipated projects of the genre this year. While known for oft-cryptic spiritual themes in both of his previous projects, Wildfires is expected to feature some of Christian's most explicitly faith-driven lyrics yet. Christian has teased some morsels of information through his facebook page over the past few months, including the title of a song he thinks may be his personal favorite, "Wide Eyed."
