Jason Nelson’s Fifth Album is Released
Award-winning artist Jason Nelson has dropped another dynamic tapestry of an album with his latest release The Answer (RCA Inspiration). The fifth studio album from the chart-topping singer, producer and Bishop delivers a compilation of live versions of his most beloved and popular songs. Nelson says of the project that he wanted to “create a compilation of songs that moves us and also describes how, in every instance, Jesus is the answer.” The Answer is sure to continue the spiritual genealogy of his previous releases Jesus Revealed, Shifting the Atmosphere, Place of Worship, and I Shall Live. The fourteen track album was recorded live at The Tabernacle at Greater Bethlehem Temple in Baltimore, MD, which Nelson pastors.
“Forever,” the lead single which was co-written by Nelson, Dana Sorey and his wife, Tonya Nelson, has steadily climbed the latest Billboard Gospel Airplay chart and MediaBase Gospel Airplay chart. Nelson incorporates the impactful and beautiful music of legendary artists including Andraé Crouch’s “Jesus Is The Answer,” and Bill Gaither’s “He Touched Me.” Nelson wrote and produced The Answer and the album also features many beloved and uber talented artists. From “You’ve Got Me” (feat. Maranda Curtis), “Faith For That” (feat. Jonathan Nelson), Nelson also collaboratied with Dana Sorey, Aaron Lindsey, Kenny Shelton, Ayron Lewis, Eric Dawkins, and more.
The inspiration-driven project by the Stellar Award-winning songwriter can be seen as a call to worship. Nelson eloquently, yet plainly says “Sometimes people express concern about how they will manage what’s happening in their lives. Does it mean God isn’t with me, or do I trust that God is sovereign? He is the answer. That’s the purpose of this album, to share this story and inspire others.” If the album is as poignant as this sentiment and as healing as his previous albums, the listeners will get a dose of healing music once again.
