Ty Herndon is set to release his latest album Jacob on July 15, in partnership with Pivotal Records.
The project is the culmination of a life of struggles and triumphs, and is his most personal album to date. He chronicles parts of his life never before shared, and the music plots a path to where Herndon finds himself today—a spot marked by recovery, inner strength and peace.
The 11-track album’s title was derived from the Biblical Old Testament figure, Jacob, who dealt with severe challenges and mistakes before rising to become a leader of his tribe. Herndon recruited Wendy Moten, Terri Clark, Jamie Floyd, Shelly Fairchild, and Emily West to sing with him on the project.
“This album is about the power we all have to change our endings. The last two years have been a journey like none other for me, and I’m looking forward to sharing some new truths with listeners and reminding them that we have it within us to turn our greatest challenges into our greatest triumphs,” said Herndon. “Besides that, it’s just some damn good music.”
Jacob will be accompanied by the release of a ten-episode podcast hosted by Herndon in partnership with Pivotal Moments Media featuring conversations with other artists discussing their mental fitness journeys. The series is designed to mirror the themes of Jacob, and will launch in June.
