Crowder’s solo debut album, Neon Steeple won’t be released until May 27, but it was announced today that fans could stream the album for free exclusively at iTunes Radio as an iTunes Radio First Play.

In the only way that Crowder can, he describes “Neon Steeple” as “The Appalachians and Ibiza. Folk music and EDM. The music of the People. Folktronica. Digital and Analog. The Ones and Zeros and the Handshake. The Banjo and the 808. A critique and a hope.”  This is the longer version of the description he used in the video telling the story behind the song, “I Am.” There he refers to the styling of the album to be “where porch music meets computer music.” By the way, the song, “I Am” is still holding strong in the Top 5 on Billboard’s Christian Music chart.

Delving deeper into folk/country music, Crowder will perform at the Grand Ole Opry, his debut, on May 31st and one of the new songs on Neon Steeples is a duet with Emmylou Harris on the song “My Sweet Lord.”
