‘Full-length Album from Singer/Songwriter & Radio Host Perry LaHaie, ‘Him,’ Rescheduled for June 5, 2020 Release
Singer/songwriter and morning drive-time radio host Perry LaHaie‘s new full-length album, Him, is rescheduled for June 5. Originally slated for a May 15, 2020 release date, Him will now be available on all platforms worldwide in June.
“This new project has been a long time in the making,” LaHaie acknowledges. “But the long process has been God’s way of creating something more beautiful and compelling. This 10-song collection of original songs and reimagined hymns tells the grand, epic story of God. It’s a story that began in the heart of God: the ‘love story about a brave Prince who leaves his palace, his throne, everything, to rescue the ones he loves,’ as author Sally Lloyd Jones puts it. And a commission for those rescued to speed the day that C.S. Lewis describes as ‘the beginning of the real story… which no one on earth has read: which goes on forever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.'”
Collectively, the ten-song collection of original songs and reimagined hymns that comprise Him tells the story of God–of His great rescue plan to bring His love to every tribe, tongue, and language on the planet, to rescue all creation from sin and death through the cross, the resurrection, and Christ’s second coming. It offers an appeal to bring this good news to those who have never heard it, including over 1,000 Muslim people groups that are still waiting for the gospel.
The project was helmed by Grammy-winning engineer and producer Andy Hunt, and features Nashville players Jared Kneale (drums), Matt Melton (bass), Matt Stanfield (keys), Nathan Dugger (guitars), and Buckley Miller (engineer). Joining LaHaie with songwriting and additional background vocals were his adult children, Kali Joy and Taylor. “It was hard to give up the singer/songwriter part of me to do Him,” LaHaie admits. “There was some pride that had to be surrendered. But that surrender led to God working something new in me–an album of reimagined hymns of amazing grace with new choruses and bridges that call us to take His grace to the world.” Perry LaHaie’s ‘Him’ is rescheduled for a June 5 release.
