Brian Courtney Wilson’s eagerly awaited fifth studio album, STILL, is available now for pre-order / pre-save. Today’s pre-order advances the full-length digital release on all platforms, Friday, October 16.
Wilson continues to elevate his musicality and artistic depth with each new body of work. STILL is the much-needed album amidst some of the most uncertain and unprecedented times in modern history. Brian acknowledges our feelings, anxiety, frustration, anger, and fear, immensely compounded in 2020, yet doing so, all through a lens of hope. STILL navigates the spaces between fact and faith, and it is beautiful.
Against the backdrop of a global pandemic and a fraught election year, STILL takes on multiple meanings. STILL is a reminder that God is still Sovereign and still with us AND a metaphor for the ‘stillness’ in our lives and how everything has changed over the last several months.
As with previous hit songs, the project’s title track “Still,” is a sweeping and entirely personal ballad. Once again, Wilson makes us feel like he’s letting us in on his innermost prayers and tapping into the same thoughts we have. “Being ‘still’ doesn’t mean you don’t do anything,” said Wilson. “To be ‘still’ is the act of tempering any anxiety long enough in order to do what you are called to do, fulfilling the assignment(s) on your life, and doing the work.”
“Still,” and the poignant remake, “Inner City Blues,” are available immediately when pre-ordered or pre-saved. The Marvin Gaye classic prefaced the 8-track album earlier this summer amidst a reckoning for social and racial justice.
STILL also includes a guest appearance by Maranda Curtis on another remake “Ain’t No Need To Worry,” and a powerful and apt worship song “Fear Is Not Welcome.”
The multiple award winner, and 3x Grammy nominee, Wilson, continues to offer enlightening conversations every Thursday evening with his expanding “Breathe Again,” digital chat series on Facebook & YouTube.
