JJ Hairston will release his 11th album, Not Holding Back, on New Year’s Day, 2021.
The 12-song set “seeks to provide hope, healing and inspiration for all post the pandemic of COVID-19,” according to a statement. In conjunction with the music, Hairston’s Not Holding Back devotional book will be available in late January 2021.
Not Holding Back features the previously released single “You Are Lord of All” featuring Phillip Bryant and Pocket of Hope. The track is currently top 20 on Billboard’s National Gospel Airplay chart.
“This project is one of the most important projects we’ve ever released,” Hariston said in a statement. “Not only because the music is relevant and heartfelt, but because we intentionally revived the musical style of our genesis, while embracing the musical style of our current culture. The marriage of both came together and formed a really powerful body of work.”
Hairston is also holding a Not Holding Back Virtual Album Release Concert on December 7, 2020. Tickets are available here.
