Opens for Lionel Richie's 'All The Hits' Tour this summer
Reunion Records/Sony Music Entertainment announces the release of Tauren Well's new solo LP, "Hills And Valleys." The digital-only deluxe edition features 15 songs and releases June 23. A physical version of the album, featuring 11 songs, will debut July 21.
To create the unique combination of sounds heard throughout "Hills And Valleys," Wells, a two-time Grammy nominee, collaborated with a variety of seasoned producers from the musical worlds of R&B, funk, pop, gospel, urban and AC. Working alongside Chuck Butler, Jordan Sapp, Casey Brown, Colby Wedgeworth and Bernie Herms, Wells also partnered with the production team of Chuck Harmony and Claude Kelly (Rihanna, Bruno Mars, Michael Jackson) for the deluxe edition bonus track "Supernatural."
The deluxe edition also includes Wells' original demo version of "God's Not Done With You," along with his rendition of the 1970's hit "September," originally recorded by Earth Wind & Fire. Wells will perform the song while on Lionel Richie's "All The Hits" Tour.
"Hills And Valleys," the title track from the new album and the current single, is a Top 5-selling track in Christian music and already climbing to the Top 10 at radio. The acoustic video for the song already has more than 2 million views, averaging 25,000 views a day.
"I am so grateful for the opportunity to release my first album as a solo artist," Wells said. "These songs have been inspired by God and my relationships with people. My hope was to write songs people needed to hear with lyrics we can all carry into every moment of life. The process of getting to this place was a path filled with many hills and valleys, but I've seen the faithfulness of God in it all."
Beginning this July, Wells is the opening act for Richie's tour, with very special guest Mariah Carey. Hitting the biggest arenas in 22 markets across the U.S. and Canada, the tour kicks off July 21 in Oakland, and will conclude Sept. 5 in Seattle.
