Colton Dixon news

Dove Award-winning artist and Season 11 "American Idol" finalist Colton Dixon has announced the Aug. 19 release of his sophomore studio album, Anchor through
Capitol CMG

"Finally some new music,” says Dixon. “I’m beyond excited to share what I've been up to since A Messenger. We've explored new territory, new sounds, and new topics for the record, and my hope is that at the end of it all, you feel closer to God than you did when you pressed play."

Anchor was written and recorded over the last year between tour dates. Dixon experimented with new sounds and steered the lyrics in a more thematic route. He co-wrote with TobyMac, Matthew West and others.

First single “More Of You” has already made it on the National Christian Audience chart,  with airplay on K-LOVE and Air1.

Fans can purchase the single on iTunes now. Click to get "More of You." Last year, Dixon released two radio singles, “You Are” and “Never Gone,” both reaching No. 1 at CHR and on the iTunes Christian singles charts.

This project comes on the heels of a best-selling and record-breaking album debut in 2013 with the release of A Messenger. Dixon’s full-length debut set the largest first week sales by a new solo Christian artist making it the top album sold in that market. 

Dixon was also nominated for three Dove awards and won “Best Contemporary Rock Album.”
