GRAMMY® AWARD WINNING ROC NATION ARTIST VICTORY DROPS HIGHLY ANTICIPATED SOPHOMORE ALBUM “GLORY HOUR” TODAY
SPECIAL LIVE PERFORMANCES SLATED FOR LOS ANGELES, DETROIT, CHICAGO, PHILADELPHIA, SEATTLE, SAN FRANCISCO, NASHVILLE, AND MORE KICK-OFF ON MAY 11
New York, NY (May 5, 2023)— Grammy® Award winning Roc Nation artist VICTORY drops her highly anticipated sophomore album, “Glory Hour” today. The new album showcases the singer/songwriter’s distinct vocals, and offers a deeply felt and earnest collection of songs that seek to uplift the soul in dark times. Bluesy and soulful, VICTORY, who originally hails from Detroit, Michigan, brings the full measure of her talent to music that blends gospel, blues, folk, pop, and soul musical styles. From the start of her career, VICTORY has always been about finding fresh ways to express her truth, and though musically grounded in her unique R&B fusion style, “Glory Hour” is a bold and inspirational 18-track collection that marks her first official foray into gospel music. Produced by Kaleb Moten, VICTORY set the tone for the stylistically eclectic album, and features singles “Just Like In Heaven” and “El Shaddai”, which has garnered 1.2M views and close to half a million streams. VICTORY will also have special live performances starting May 11 on her “Revealed Tour” in Los Angeles, Detroit, Chicago, Philadelphia, Seattle, San Francisco, Nashville, and more (see below). Purchase “Glory Hour” HERE.
VICTORY wrote, recorded and co-produced the new project at The Secret Place, the New Jersey based studio she opened in early 2020, and penned her tunes on a baby grand piano. On “Glory Hour,” the singer-songwriter plays multiple instruments, from the piano on her ballad “Glory to God”; to acoustic guitar on “Just Like in Heaven.” The album also includes the choir and blues-infused “Rejoice,” and classic hymns such as “His Eye is On The Sparrow,” and “Great is Thy Faithfulness.” Victory was accompanied by an ensemble of musicians on tracks produced by Kaleb Moten, Space Jones and Grammy® Award winner Stephen Blake Kanicka.
Says VICTORY, “My last album came out in 2018, and after five years of what felt like setbacks, I can now see that this journey was the necessary process for the cultivation of these songs.
With the new album, the listener will hear of the grace of God that carried me through every test and trial. May everyone be inspired with hope listening to ‘Glory Hour.’”
