US songsmith Andrew Peterson readies 'Counting Stars' album

THE LATEST album from singer, songwriter and author Andrew Peterson, 'Counting Stars', will be released in the US on 27th July. The CD, produced by the artist's long-time collaborators Ben Shive and Andy Gullahorn, is the second project from Peterson to be released by Centricity Music. The bulk of material for 'Counting Stars' was recorded within eight days in Washington State during January 2010, as Peterson camped in a recording studio with Shive, Gullahorn, Gabe Scott and engineer, Todd Robbins. The 12 new songs were written over a two-year period by Peterson, who is one of the most respected songwriters in several genres of music. The first single from the project is "The Reckoning". Written by the songsmith while sitting on the porch of his home outside of Nashville when a severe thunderstorm was rolling into the area. Commented Peterson, "I love the humility that a big, dangerous storm system gives us. Everyone remembers they're quite small and powerless in the scheme of things. In the 21st century, with jumbo jets and air conditioning and high-speed internet, we still sometimes have to run for our lives and hide in the closet under a blanket." CR
