Dove Award winner Plumb's seventh and upcoming studio album is titled Exhale. It will be released via Curb Records on March 31, 2015. This will be her first studio album after Plumb's powerful personal testimony documented through her much-lauded album "Need You Now" and the corresponding book, "A Story of Hope," both of which share the story of God restoring and redeeming her broken marriage and changing her life in the process.
"I have a chance to say 'these are the first true fruits of all of that, and I'm breathing it out,'" Plumb says of the new chapter of life that birthed "Exhale." "I say a lot that hope is oxygen, and we all need to breathe. And there's always hope, but we can't always see it through the fog or the black of what we're going through."
"Every record I've made, I've tried very hard for them to be a reflection of where I was at the time, sort of like a journal brought to life," Plumb shared in an exclusive interview with NRT at the KLOVE Fan Awards Press conference. "I'm just in an extremely thankful place because God completely redeemed and reconciled my marriage and changed my life, changed my heart. I'm a very new, different person. So I'm in a just, in a place spiritually and emotionally of just being thankful... I wouldn't put it in the category of worship records, because that's kind of a category in its own right and there's an expectation when you think or hear 'worship record.' But this is Plumb, in a very worshipful place."
"So many of us are suffocating because we don't really believe that that hope exists," she continued. "But once we taste it or touch it or see it, it just consumes us. So I've breathed that in, because it is always there, and it has changed me. And now this is just me breathing it back out."
Plumb has sold more than 500,000 albums and over two million singles worldwide, co-penned songs for numerous other artists, including Michelle Branch, Mandisa, Mandy Moore, Jaci Velasquez, and Natalie Grant, and had music placed in many films and television shows
