Two-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Lauren Daigle has released her highly anticipated, self-titled album – “Lauren Daigle” – out now via Atlantic Records/Centricity Music.
Led by Grammy-winning producer Mike Elizondo (Twenty One Pilots, Mary J. Blige, Fiona Apple, Carrie Underwood) and featuring co-writes with award-winning songwriters, including Natalie Hemby, Amy Wadge, Jason Ingram, Lori McKenna and Jon Greene, “Lauren Daigle” marks a new creative chapter for the Louisiana-born artist.
Daigle said, “Working with Mike Elizondo and all of the amazing writers and musicians on this album was the most incredible experience and truly a dream come true. These songs are so special to me, and I can’t wait to share them with the world.”
The self-titled project’s first 10 songs arrived Friday, with another 13 songs releasing later this year. All 23 tracks showcase the multifaceted artist’s stunning and powerful voice, rich storytelling and incredible musicality.
Over the past few weeks, Daigle held intimate album preview concerts in Nashville, New Orleans and Los Angeles, where fans were able to hear the full record live, in advance of the release. She also celebrated the album with fans and Recording Academy members at LA’s Grammy Museum, performing acoustic renditions of select tracks and engaging in an in-depth Q&A moderated by Billboard’s Lyndsey Havens.
Additionally, Daigle recently sat down with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe in Nashville for an extensive conversation about the making of her new self-titled album. The full interview is available here.
Later this year, Daigle will embark on her highly anticipated U.S. arena tour – “The Kaleidoscope Tour” – which kicks off Sept. 6 in Memphis. Tickets are now on sale at www.laurendaigle.com. She visits Artpark in Lewiston on July 14.

With over a billion streams and years of sold-out U.S. and international tours to her name, Daigle continues to cement her status as a modern vocal powerhouse with a global, ever-growing fanbase.
Since the release of her Grammy Award-winning, Platinum-certified 2018 album, “Look Up Child” – which includes the breakthrough, newly six-times-Platinum-certified hit single “You Say” – Daigle has been a mainstay on the Billboard charts. When “Look Up Child” debuted at No. 3 on the Top 200 Albums chart, Daigle became the first female artist in history to simultaneously hit the Top 10 on both Billboard’s pop and Christian album charts. She went on to break another record when the LP reached 100 weeks at No. 1 on the Top Christian Albums chart, which is the greatest number of weeks that any artist has spent at the top of any individual album chart. Similarly, “You Say” is the longest-running No. 1 to appear on any weekly Billboard chart.
Born in Lake Charles, Louisiana, Daigle is a two-time Grammy, seven-time Billboard Music Award, four-time American Music Award, and 10-time GMA Dove Music Award winner.
Off stage, Daigle remains committed to investing her time to promote music education, work with at-risk youth, and provide care for children, the elderly, and those in need through The Price Fund, an organization she founded in 2018. To date, she has distributed over $2.5 million to 42 nonprofits around the world.
