Colour's 3rd record, featuring Nashville session player and drummer for Over the Rhine, Tommy Perkinson.
Message from Melissa Woodall, lead singer/ songwriter:
"Many of you know this record has been a couple of years in the making, scratched and re-tracked so many times. In an attempt to make it perfect I think we realized, to an extent, we were doing it a disservice. This record is about imperfection. It's about hurt, anger, frustration, sin, grief, the frailty of the human condition and a glimpse of restoration and healing [In fact, I can't wait for you the hear the songs that come after this record!] I believe this record serves its place in time and that it is meant to be exactly how it has surfaced, when it has surfaced, for whatever purpose it is to fulfill. To say it's rough around the edges would be an understatement.
It's messy. It's vulnerable. It's excruciatingly bitter at times.
But I believe we belong to a God who sees all of the cracks and crevices and bullshit that we try to hide behind- and he has so much hope and redemption that we have done absolutely nothing, and I mean nothing, to deserve. A God who can absolutely bring you into a new life that you never thought possible. My hope, if you are listening to this, is that if you find yourself angry, bitterly relating, know my heart aches with you and I hope you don't allow yourself to rest there. My hope is that this album pushes you to move forward, to accept grace, to fully embrace growing pains and to forgive others and yourself. To know that restoration and healing come not when you figure out how to get back to some time when you felt happy or like you had "found yourself", but when you finally learn how to own up, let go, rest and trust how much you are fully and recklessly loved. More than your mind can really even grasp.
This record is about the places we have been, the places we have tried to go on our own, and the places we being are being led, and in turn, if we choose, will go."
