Following her self-produced, crowd-funded sophomore release Overcome that iTunes® called "One of the best Christian albums of 2012," Lara Landon announced a Kickstarter campaign for her third album, Free, slated to release in early 2014.  Inviting her fans to get involved in the new album process by pre-ordering it through Kickstarter, the campaign reached, and even exceeded its goal. 
Already making plans to record the new songs for Free that she wrote with Jennie Lee Riddle ("Revelation Song"), Michael Farren (Pocket Full of Rocks, "Let It Rain"), Krissy Nordhoff ("Your Great Name"), Elias Dummer (The City Harmonic, "Manifesto"), Otto Price (DC Talk, Barlow Girl), Sam Tinnesz (Mike's Chair) and more, Landon also gave fans an early taste of the upcoming album through acoustic versions on video premiered exclusively through and
"See it here first and prepare to be blown away! No doubt about it, the girl can sing!" declares CCM Magazine in their premiere of Landon's live video "Turn It Around."  Written with Price, Landon says, "The song is a soulful/vintage vibe track that I wanted to make reminiscent and hopeful, like Marvin Gayes' ‘What's Going On.'"
Prior to the premier of "Turn It Around," Landon debuted the lead single from Free, "There Is Grace," as a streaming video through  Featured playing piano in the video is Farren, who also co-wrote and produced the song.
During the Kickstarter campaign, Landon further offered everyone the opportunity to download all the songs from her current album,Overcome, through Noisetrade at  A remarkable album,, like iTunes, named Overcome one of the best new albums of 2012, as Christianity Today says the album "shines musically" and demonstrates "grace and maturity beyond her 26 years." adds that Landon "has talent in spades" and that "Overcome is the tip of the iceberg for the talented young artist...there's no doubt her voice will be heard by more eager listeners tired of sugar-coated pop for years to come."
Recently named the director of music at Birmingham's House of Prayer, Landon shares, "Music is the vehicle that takes me places, lets me connect with people, teaches me things about myself, and I'm confident it's what I was created to do. Over the years, I've gone through so many changes, but right now I feel ‘free.'  My new songs and sound reflect that– they are much more soulful and upbeat than what I've done before.  I'm also learning and growing so much by leading and overseeing worship music five days a week."
