Nashville, Tenn. (July 20, 2015) – Colton Dixon will give fans a glimpse of his musical versatility with the upcoming releases of dual EPs Calm and Storm, debuting September 11. Calm, a stripped down collection of acoustic songs, and Storm, a compilation of energetic remixed tracks, will feature fan favorites from Dixon’s debut release A Messenger and current project ANCHOR. Fans will hear transformed versions of the biggest hits including “You Are,” “Never Gone” and “More Of You.”
Copies of the EPs will be available as one full-length album including both Calm and Storm titled The Calm Before The Storm, or the EPs may be purchased and streamed separately through digital music services.
Earlier today, Dixon announced the EPs on social media, sending fans on an online scavenger hunt through instagram, Apple Music and Facebook, which eventually led them to the EP titles and album artwork.
Calm and Storm follow Dixon’s sophomore release ANCHOR, which continues to see success as current single “Through All Of It” recently hit No. 1 on the Hot AC chart and Top 10 on the AC Indicator Chart. The album’s first single, “More Of You,” spent three weeks at No. 1 and was the most played Hot AC single of 2014.
