Colton Dixon will give fans a glimpse of his musical versatility with the upcoming releases of dual EPs "Calm" and "Storm," debuting Sept. 11. 

"Calm," a stripped-down collection of acoustic songs, and "Storm," a compilation of energetic, remixed tracks, will feature fan favorites from Dixon's debut release "A Messenger" and current project "Anchor." Fans will hear transformed versions of his biggest hits, including "You Are," "Never Gone" and "More Of You." 

Copies of the EPs will be available as one full-length album including both "Calm" and "Storm" (titled "The Calm Before The Storm"), or the EPs may be purchased and streamed separately through digital music services.

Dixon announced the EPs on social media Monday, sending fans on an online scavenger hunt through Instagram, Apple Music and Facebook, which eventually led them to the EP titles and album artwork.

"Calm" and "Storm" follow Dixon's sophomore release "Anchor," which continues to see success, as current single "Through All Of It" recently hit No. 1 on the Hot AC chart and top 10 on the AC Indicator Chart. The album's first single, "More Of You," spent three weeks at No. 1 and was the most played Hot AC single of 2014.

Following a busy summer performing at festivals across the U.S., Colton will hit 36 cities this fall as a part of TobyMac's "***THIS IS NOT A TEST***" tour. For a current list of tour dates, click here.

Dixon quickly became a household name in 2012 when he made it to the top seven on Season 11 of FOX's hit show "American Idol," and his career has been on the fast track ever since. Dixon's 2013 debut, "A Messenger," set the record for biggest first-week sales by a new solo Christian act, becoming the No. 1 selling album by a new Christian artist and the No. 9 best-selling album of 2013 in the Christian genre overall. 

In 2013, Dixon won a Dove Award for Best Rock/Contemporary Album Of The Year, along with two additional nominations. Dixon has been named a Steinway artist, following in the footsteps of artists such as Harry Connick Jr., Diana Krall and Billy Joel.
