Country hit maker LeAnn Rimes is ready to present her acclaimed voice in a whole new way, announcing a new album of meditations titled CHANT: The Human & The Holy
Set for release on November 20 and featuring 12 soothing tracks, the project will be a bold (but relaxing) change of pace for the “Blue” star. It aims to showcase the power of her country vocal “in a completely new light, channeling wisdom into mantras and messages of hope and remembrance during a time of need.”
Co-written by Rimes and Darrell Brown, the album has reportedly been nearly 10 years in making. Rimes famously became a country star as a teenager but then had a rough time adjusting to the spotlight, and eventually was forced to seek treatment for anxiety and depression at the age of 30. She’s now turning that experience into a way to help others, by using her love of music to transform the prayers and mantras that got her through it into inspirational chants. Each one is a reminder of a listeners’ “inherent worth, belonging and wholeness,” designed as a daily dose of support.
“For those of you who might not be familiar with my journey into this space, for the past 12 months I have been exploring new ways to connect with and utilize my voice,” Rimes writes on Instagram. “I’ve been creating chants to infuse and send out alongside of my @soulofeverle candles and I had no idea how they would be received, or how much you would connect with my new adventures. I felt so inspired by the overwhelming LovE that you sent my way that I knew I wanted to expand upon the clear nod from the universe that I was on to something special.”
Meanwhile, LeAnn Rimes will dig even further into mental and emotional health with a new podcast titled Wholly Human, which debuts November 30 on iHeartRadio.
