Christian Music News, New Christian Music News Critically lauded singer, songwriter and author, Audrey Assad, internationally released her highly-anticipated, five-star acclaimed album, Inheritance, Feb. 12 on Fortunate Fall Records with Tone Tree Music distribution. In its debut week at retail, the recording launched to No. 2 on the Billboard Top Christian/Gospel Albums chart  while hitting No. 1 for a time on the iTunes Christian/Gospel charts both in the U.S. and Canada. Already selling 8,325 albums, the album has become Audrey's best-selling first-week debut to date.
 
A collection of hymns and original songs that both pay homage to her childhood heritage and to her Catholic faith and charismatic spirituality, Inheritance is available now at iTunes, Amazon.com, Christianbook.com and physical retailers everywhere.
 
Featured on the new album are the original song "Even Unto Death," written after Audrey heard of yet another martyrdom in the Middle East, "It Is Well With My Soul," a special dedication to honor Audrey's late grandmother, and "Holy, Holy, Holy," which will be going for radio adds soon and is a cinematic take on the Reginald Heber / John B. Dykes hymn. These tracks, as well as "Ubi Caritas" and "Be Thou My Vision," are also available on YouTube now as beautifully shot, nature inspired lyric videos.
 
Co-producing Inheritance with Daniel James (Canon Blue, Joy Williams, Among Savages), Audrey's new album projects a unique soundscape through a cinematic-styled approach featuring lush textures and wide, expansive rhythms that allow her voice to glide effortlessly over a diverse landscape of prayerful contemplation. Approaching all the songs on Inheritance with a sense of delicate appreciation balanced with artistic integrity, the new recording infuses a modern sensibility with Audrey's influences to form something entirely new.
 
Worship Leader Magazine agrees that Inheritance "is not just another hymns album," as Aleteia calls the album "more than just a worthy contribution; it's an invaluable gift." NewReleaseToday.com declares the album "to be one of the top worship albums of the year," while CCM Magazine says in its 5-star review that the album "provides as much substance and style as any record will likely hold in 2016." Breathecast.com adds that the recording "is easily one of this best albums of 2016 and Assad's stunning gift is a beautiful offering of her heart that should be welcomed with open arms."
 
As the critics continue to chime in with praise, Audrey and Inheritance have been, or will be, featured by a diverse, wide-reaching group of media, including those mentioned above and RELEVANT, Christianity Today, Under The Radar, Catholic World Report, "Worship with Andy Chrisman," Leading Hearts, AXS.com, HollywoodJesus.com, HearItFirst.com, Catholic Chronicle, The Church Collective Podcast and many more.
 
In many ways, a hymns album is a return home for Audrey who grew up learning to sing in a Plymouth Brethren community. "I was raised in a church where we didn't use any instruments on Sunday mornings," Audrey notes. "I learned to sing there, from the old hymnbooks, in four-part harmony, with my family and my neighbors. It was multi-generational, it was deep and rich and beautiful, and like most of my favorite worship music, it was steeped in community."
