Colton Dixon dropped his sophomore album, Anchor, this week. The American Idol season 11 alum debut the lyric video for the title track at USA Today.
The song was inspired by, “how easy it is to get distracted out on the road, how easy it was to get caught up in a schedule and lose your focus.”
“More than the last record, this record is very personal,” he told USA Today. “The first record seemed almost like a mission statement of what I wanted to do. For this record, it wasn’t a dark place that I was in, but it was a drifting place, a place where I could either get stronger or take a step backwards.”
Colton wrote songs for Anchor with Christian contemporary stars, TobyMac and Matthew West, as well as his usual collaborators, David Garcia, Ben Glover, Adam Watts, Andy Dodd and Gannin Arnold.
Look out for Colton on tour with the west coast leg of Winter Jam, which begins Nov. 6 in Rio Rancho, N.M.
