On Friday, two-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Lauren Daigle shared her highly anticipated, 23-track, complete self-titled album – “Lauren Daigle” – via Atlantic Records/Centricity Music. Listen here.
Led by Grammy-winning producer Mike Elizondo (Twenty One Pilots, Mary J. Blige, Fiona Apple, Carrie Underwood), “Lauren Daigle” boasts co-writes with award-winning songwriters, including Natalie Hemby, Amy Wadge, Shane McAnally, Jason Ingram, Lori McKenna and Jon Green, and features from Jon Batiste, Natalie Hemby and Gary Clark Jr. The album showcases the Louisiana native’s stunning and powerful voice, rich storytelling, and incredible musicality.
Daigle said, “I am so thrilled to share my complete self-titled album with the world today – each of these 23 tracks represents all that I am. I had the most incredible, fulfilling experience making this record with Mike Elizondo and the amazing writers and musicians we were so lucky to collaborate with. I can’t wait to share these songs on the road this fall!”
Last week, Daigle kicked off “The Kaleidoscope Tour,” a run of U.S. arena dates that will take her from New Jersey’s Prudential Center to LA’s Crypto.com Arena, with stops in Boston, Atlanta, Seattle, and many more cities in between. Brandon Lake, Crowder, Josh Garrels and Victory Boyd will join Daigle as support on select dates. Tickets are on sale at www.laurendaigle.com.
Daigle recently announced her continued partnership with KultureCity to create and renovate 17 “sensory rooms” at venue stops on this fall’s tour. Specially designed by medical professionals, the spaces provide dedicated environments for individuals in need of a quieter and more secure environment from which to enjoy concert (and sporting) events. Each sensory room will be outfitted with bean bags from Yogibo, visual light panels by Nanoleaf, activity panels, Sparkle Interactive Light by NunoErin, bubble walls, and a custom tactile artwork created by an autistic artist. In addition, sensory bags will be available at all tour stops for those who might need them. More information about the rooms can be found here.
Lauren Daigle performed this summer at Artpark in Lewiston.
In May, Daigle shared the first 10 songs off the complete self-titled LP release, receiving immediate acclaim from the likes of Billboard, The Tennessean, and Variety, the latter of whom declared her “one of the best singers in contemporary pop.”
Meanwhile, Daigle’s current single, the Billboard No. 1 “Thank God I Do,” recently topped all six Christian song charts at once, a feat that has not been achieved by any artist since her 2018 smash hit, “You Say,” did the same. “Thank God I Do” is currently Top 15 at Hot AC Radio.
Daigle’s next single will be vibrant track “These Are The Days” – watch the song’s infectious, one-shot official music video here.
With over a billion streams and years of sold-out US 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.
