Colton Dixon EP [edit]
by Colton Dixon | Genre: Pop/Rock | Release Date: May 15, 2020
 

In light of the success of "Miracles," his first new single in over three years, Colton Dixon will release his self-titled EP with Atlantic Records/Hear It Loud. Expanding the scope of his signature sound for the first time, Dixon imparts life's ebbs and flows into an empowering, engaging, and enigmatic take on pop referential of his catalog, yet evolved and steeped in newfound inspiration.

Expanding the scope of his signature sound for the first time, Dixon imparts life's ebbs and flows into an empowering, engaging, and enigmatic take on pop referential of his catalog, yet evolved and steeped in newfound inspiration. Acclaimed by everyone from People to Billboard and streamed over 100 million times to date, the award-winning and history-making singer, songwriter, and producer channels such growth into the EP. Following a three-year break, Dixon returns with a new sound informed by true experiences.

In order to find this space, he challenged himself to not only adapt to personal and professional changes, but also pursue them. After signing with Atlantic Records he flew out to Los Angeles for dozens of writing sessions. Not only would Colton Dixon be his debut for the label, but it also marked his first time working with producers such as Robopop [Maroon 5, Lana Del Rey], the late busbee [Timbaland, P!nk, Gwen Stefani] and Grant Averill [The Holdup], to name a few. Under the influence of everyone from OneRepublic and Imagine Dragons to Adele, Justin Bieber, Lauv, and Shawn Mendes, he embraced the creative ecosystem.

"I've written so many songs over the past three years," he says. "Even though the world probably won't hear them all, I enjoyed every session. I've gotten to write with people from all different beliefs and walks of life. We were able to have real conversations about faith, family, struggles, and life, in general. I hope these songs reflect those conversations and inspire you to have conversations of your own."

An Album That Was Worth the Wait | Posted May 13, 2020
What You Need To Know
Colton Dixon is an amazing artist who has been making music for nearly ten years. You may remember him from season 11 of American Idol, where he finished in seventh place. After a three year break between albums, Colton recently signed with Atlantic Records and is back with his new self-titled EP. In addition to the excitement of releasing a new record, Colton announced that he and his wife Annie are expecting twins due this fall.

What it Sounds Like
I love this new EP from Colton. Every song on the record is incredible and inspiring. This new music was definitely worth the wait, and I'm sure it will be loved for years to come. This album has an amazing pop sound with Colton's songs "Miracles" and "Wanderer," and also has a catchy vibe with "Devil is a Liar." Overall this album is incredible and has a great sound to it.

Spiritual Highlights
This EP brings out multiple biblical points. "Devil is a Liar" really speaks of how the enemy is a liar (John 8:44), and "Miracles" talks about the amazing fact that God is making miracles happen all the time, and He rescued us from our sin before "we hit the ground" as Colton sings about. This album brings out many important spiritual highlights that we need to be reminded of every day.

Best Song on the Record
"Wanderer" is definitely the best song on the record. It's a fun song that speaks of who we are as followers of Christ. We're all wanderers, chasing after God's calling. He's leading us and guiding us through life, and He is our "compass in the stars" like Colton sings about. It's a song that I can relate to, and I'm sure many others will be able to relate to it as well. It's worth a listen.

For Fans Of
David Dunn, Stars Go Dim, Hawk Nelson

Final Word
Overall, Colton Dixon released a really great EP. Like I said earlier, this new music was worth the wait. You can stream Colton Dixon EP May 15th on Spotify and Apple Music.
