Award-winning Christian singer Jeremy Camp is gearing up for the release of his new album and movie as his new single, “Dead Man Walking,” hit radio stations last week. The singer says this new musical project is his most vulnerable yet.
“This album series and what’s been going on in my life right now is like, there’s such a refreshing, crazy thing in my heart that God’s doing,” Camp told The Christian Post on Thursday.
With 40 No. 1 singles under his belt and a career that spans nearly a decade, Camp said his new album made him reflect on all God has done throughout his life.
“This has brought the journey back. [Thinking] of what God has done in my life. It has been really incredible because I would say that besides my first record, this is probably the most vulnerable record that I’ve written,” He shared.
His new single, “Dead Man Walking,” is based on Colossians 2:13–14 which says, “you were once dead in the trespasses of your sins but you’ve been made alive, again because your sins have been forgiven.”
“It’s this whole perpetual understanding of what God has done,” Camp explained. “There’s a lyric in the song that says freedom was something I never found, trying to find it 6 feet in the ground. It’s a very picturesque way to say, ‘When I wasn’t serving the Lord, or whatever your situation may be, you’re not going to find the freedom unless you completely surrender.’”
“The song to me is like a reversal back again, because the season I’m in is like, ‘God, you literally have taken me from the pit of destruction and given me a new life and I don’t want to go back to that place ever,’” he continued. “I won’t because He’s taking me out of it but it’s like, looking back going, ‘You rescued me.’”
