|Today, 3X Grammy-nominated artist Crowder is releasing his highly-anticipated third solo album, I Know A Ghost, which blurs genre lines and combines gospel, bluegrass, country, electronic-synth and southern Hip-hop. Crowder draws from the people, culture, diversity and places that surround him, tapping into the influences of his East Texas roots and the synergy of his home base in Atlanta. A narrative that Crowder began in his first two solo albums flows right into this third release. Crowder explains, “I Know A Ghost is the after party. In the story of the prodigal son, the wayward son eventually comes home. When he does, the Father throws his son a lavish party. Of course, there are songs bumping at the party and this is what that moment sounds like to me. Holy Ghost music! And we all know Holy Ghost music is best served with a side of swamp pop.”
Delivering 16 tracks across the album, the multi-instrumentalist and songwriter continues to stretch musical boundaries. Listeners will hear Latin influences in the song “La Luz (feat. Social Club Misfits),” and Crowder’s love for Appalachian instrumental textures are displayed in porch-playin,’ beat-stomping songs "Child Of God" and "Happy Day.” He draws the listener in with the upbeat, gospel-infused melody and affecting lyrics of “Let It Rain (Is There Anybody) [feat. Mandisa],” and “Crushing Snakes (feat. TAYA)” is a stirring anthem with ethereal vocals filled with defiant faith.
