Quick! Listen to Audrey Assad’s new demo “Bruises” before it’s gone

For just a few days, you can listen to a song not available on any of her albums

For just a few days, Audrey Assad is letting you listen to a demo recorded straight from her living room – a song called “Bruises.” You won’t find it on any of her records. Audrey wrote of the impromptu sharing of the demo: “Sometimes you just need to write songs and they serve no ‘purpose’ but catharsis. This is one of those.”

As you might guess by the title, “Bruises” touches on some deep wounds, but, as always, Assad’s angelic voice softens the heaviness. Read the lyrics above, and check out the song here on Soundcloud.

And don’t forget to check out Audrey’s upcoming Inheritance (Deluxe Edition), which includes reinterpretations of a number of the original hymns, featuring Cara Fox and Sarah Kroger. Stay tuned to Cecilia, for more on Audrey’s upcoming album.

Audrey Assad

Name: Audrey Assad

Hometown: Scotch Plains, NJ

Latest Album: Inheritance

Curiosity: Audrey’s music resonates with so many because of her raw openness and honesty in everything she is facing: doubt, fear, depression. She often tells her audience that she writes her songs to preach to herself, knowing she needs it the most. Writing about her new record, Audrey said, “Making a record of hymns will be a way in which I can, once again, nail the stakes of my tent down a little deeper into the ground, arm my heart with words of life, and say to the black vacuum of unbelief, you will not have me.
