Plumb has just released what is likely one of her most personal albums. Life’s pain and struggles became the fuel for her latest album, Exhale
Recently on social media, Plumb commented candidly on her motivation for Exhale…
“Hey everyone, I just wanted to take a minute to share a personal note about my new album EXHALE. The title comes from something my pastor said recently: ‘We do not exist for us….we exist to share the grace and love so freely given to us all….we breathe it in, it change us, it makes us new and then we share it – we EXHALE.’
I breathed in a life-changing grace when God met me in my darkest place of brokenness after my husband left me, and He changed me and gave me hope. Then, He redeemed a dead marriage in a way only He could…through a miracle… and we remarried. I am SO THANKFUL for the redemption. SO THANKFUL for that change. SO THANKFUL for that grace. So I made this new record as one huge, gigantic love letter to the One who carried me during all of that. EXHALE represents the hope of the entire record…that we will each breathe in that grace and then exhale it. That is why we exist!”
Sometimes when life seems to be in the best possible position, your world caves in on you. This was the place in which Plumb found herself a few short years ago. Immediately after completing her comeback album ‘NEED YOU NOW’, Plumb found herself in an unthinkable position. Her marriage was on the brink of divorce, and she had to make a decision that would change the course of her family’s future. She chose to fight for her marriage and her family.
Now two years later, Plumb is telling her story not only in the upcoming book NEED YOU NOW – A Story of Hope, but also through the release of a deluxe version of the ‘NEED YOU NOW’ album. Both the book and the album will be in stores and available online in September.
Already her biggest album to date, the title-track “NEED YOU NOW (How Many Times)” was a #1 smash hit at radio and cemented her place as a multi-faceted musical force. Selling over 100,000 albums, 300,000 singles on iTunes, 100,000 certified spins on radio, and 5 Million streams across YouTube, Spotify, Beats, Rdio, and the like, NEED YOU NOW has merged formats and found acceptance in a variety of crossover genres.
