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.
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.
