Reunion recording artist LaRue is set for the January
23 release of “Transparent,” the follow-up to their 1999 critically
acclaimed debut, LaRue. Produced by Rick Elias (“That Thing You Do”)
and Ken Mary (The Beach Boys), Transparent features 11 selections
written by Phillip and Natalie LaRue, as well as the hidden track, “Like
Clay,” also penned by the duo.
Highlighted cuts include the album’s first single, “Wake Up,” a call to
responsibility from Phillip and Natalie to their own generation, along
with “Fly,” “Jaded,” and “I Can’t Sing.” In addition, Transparent
features “Brianna’s Song,” a tribute to the perseverance of Phillip and
Natalie’s sister, who has cerebral palsy, and “One White Tulip,” a song
inspired by the loyalty and dedication of the siblings’ family.
“This album reflects where we are now, and where we needed to go,” said
Phillip. “It’s definitely more passionate, more edgy and more driving,
but the melodies are still strong. We wanted to experiment a little bit
more, and weĆ­ve definitely got the musical vibe we hoped for.”
“It was important for us to get past the surface and go deeper with
issues – songs that talk about where our lives are now and how it applies
to our walk with God,” said Natalie. “We’ve both grown and changed a
lot since our first record. We want to be open, honest and real with
our music.”
LaRue’s self-titled 1999 recording yielded the hit singles “Waiting
Room” and “Someday,” while their debut video to “Reason” received
airplay on The Disney Channel. The brother/sister duo has been featured
on the covers of Campus Life and Brio magazines, along with being voted
Favorite New Artist or Group by readers of Release magazine. LaRue is
currently featured on the Rebecca St. James “Transform” Tour.
