Singer Fred Hammond’s Upcoming Love Song Album Inspired By Book of Song of Solomon
The new ‘love song’ album from Fred Hammond will release soon for those Christians that think its alright to mix gospel music and love songs together. We know that some Christians have no problem with this because we are beginning to hear those who make ‘gospel and love song’ mix tapes? What? Yes, this is where we are.
God, Love and Romance, slated to release Jan. 31, gives an honest perspective on love and marriage. Hammond says more Christians should explore this topic when singing, preaching or teaching.
“One of the things that I scratch my head over is why do we go to Psalms and Proverbs, skip over [Song of Solomon], and go to Ecclesiastes?” he said in a YouTube interview. “We act like it doesn’t exist, but God thought it was important enough to say it.”
The album features love songs that run the gamut of relational experiences. Hammond is currently unmarried after his 2004 divorce to his wife of 17 years. Songs on the album speak of Hammond’s personal experiences in love, addressing topics such as falling head-over-heels, emotional pain of a broken relationship and going on a first date–again.
Hammond insists the album is not your traditional gospel album and may make some uncomfortable, but it does deal with the practical human side of life and love.
Will you support ‘gospel love songs?
