Husband-and-wife country duo Jed & Claire Seneca have announced the release of their highly anticipated new album, Carry You Through, releasing on Oct. 26 on Frethouse Records. Produced by Jed, the new eleven-track collection is marked by the common themes of faith, marriage and family, and holding onto hope in the midst of life's challenges.
On the new record, the duo bridges elements of contemporary and classic country, and Carry You Through features contributions from many of Nashville's most renowned studio musicians, including Buddy Hyatt on piano, Grammy Award-winner Brent Mason on electric guitar, Bobby Terry on acoustic guitar, Lonnie Wilson on drums, Steve Hinson on pedal steel guitar, and Kevin Grantt on bass.
With four songs co-written by Jed or Claire, the duo says the new project is as personal as it is universal. "Things We Can Love Without," "Without You" and the album's title track reflect the couple's commitment to marriage and family, spanning different seasons of life; and "Takin' A Stand," penned by Jed and Claire with Hunter Moore, gives voice to listeners wanting to make a difference in the midst of a constantly shifting culture.
Worship anthems "Always Have" and "Gracefully Broken," recent favorites of Jed and Claire, are reimagined with modern country instrumentation. Inspired by the work of faith-based relief organization Convoy of Hope, "Help Is On The Way" was penned by award-winning songwriters Matt Armstrong and Benji Cowart, along with Jessica Sirls, Pillippa Hanna and Terri Lynn Hasdorf.
"This new album captures the journey the Lord has had Claire and me on which has taken us from Nashville's Music Row, to church planting across the country, and finally to the coast of California where we rediscovered our love of music and the impact it can have on people's lives," Jed Seneca says. "These songs are our lives, our hearts, and we are finally ready to share them with the world."
"Whether we are leading worship at a church in Dallas or entertaining at a country music club in Orange County, it is always our desire to encourage listeners right where they are, and help to lighten their load," Claire Seneca adds. "Ultimately, through not only the music, but our words-and most importantly, our lives-we want to point people to the Hope we have in Christ."
Carry You Through will be available for pre-sale at leading digital outlets beginning on Oct. 12.
