Powerhouse vocalist and songwriter, and "The Voice" season nine winner Jordan Smith has released a new song, "Battles," available now. It is also accompanied by a live performance video, which can be viewed here and below.
Smith shared, “I wrote 'Battles' with two of Christian music’s best: Jonas Myrin and Ed Cash. The message at the heart of the song is one of confidence – not in who we are or what we can do – but in the faithfulness and power that God has shown throughout each of our stories.”
Smith has a voice that needs no introduction and with faith that needs no explanation. From the moment the Kentucky native was first introduced to America through "The Voice," it was evident that his faith was part of his DNA. And now his beliefs take center stage as he has stepped into the next natural chapter of his career with new songs and joined with his new label family, Provident Label Group.
It was earlier this year Smith released his label debut “Great You Are,” a song that is the pinnacle of everything he has ever wanted to do.
“Connecting people to God just feels natural, and it feels free, and it feels easy,” Smith admitted. “I want people to experience the Holy Spirit. I want them to be uplifted, and I want them to feel God’s love and his acceptance through my music, even if they don’t know what that is; even if they don’t understand that’s what they’re experiencing. My lifelong dream is to be able to make music for the church and to just experience heaven with people.”
Smith has a powerhouse delivery and expansive range that remains instantly identifiable and inimitable. As the highest-selling artist to ever emerge from NBC’s Emmy-winning series, “The Voice,” he shot three performance singles to the top of the charts while competing on the show: “Great Is Thy Faithfulness,” which he performed as a tribute to the lives lost during the Paris bombing in 2015; a Christmas single, “Mary Did You Know?”; and a powerful cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.” His full-length debut, “Something Beautiful,” entered the Billboard 200 at No. 2 and made history with the biggest first-week sales ever from a winner of “The Voice.” His popular Christmas album, “ ’Tis The Season,” followed, as well as his second acclaimed studio LP, “Only Love,” on which Smith unveiled his talent as a songwriter, co-penning six of the project’s dozen tracks.
As a writer signed to Universal Music Publishing Group, he’s co-written with Glen Ballard, Steve Booker, Sam Ellis, Blair Daly, Jordan Reynolds, Jonas Myrin, MoZella, Dave Barnes and Bernie Herms, among other esteemed lyricists. He’s also written songs and toured extensively with Michael W. Smith. In addition, Smith holds co-writing credit on “Ashes,” the theme song for "Deadpool 2," recorded by Celine Dion. He’s performed “Feel Good,” the theme song for ABC’s “GMA Day,” and received an invitation to perform at a “Celebrity Fight Night” event at the home of revered vocalist Andrea Bocelli.
