Singer-songwriter Josh Ross announces his latest album is set to release, February 2017. Recently, some of the new tracks have seen premieres with Popwrapped and Live in Limbo. In an interview with All Access Music Josh states,
“I was inspired to write an album full of songs for a wedding. I wanted to record an instrumental processional song for the bride, a few low-key songs to be played during dinner, and several upbeat songs that could get people moving on the dance floor. More importantly, my dream was to create an album that authentically portrayed love and relationships. There are many songs that make love appear to be either a fairytale or a tragedy. Instead, I wanted to offer an honest look at the joys and struggles of pursuing, marrying, and living with your best friend.”
The latest track “It’s Us Against The World” will be exclusively hosted by CatholicMom.com, and Josh Ross could not be more excited. Here is what he had to say about the track:
“My wife helped me come up with the title for this song. We have often felt that it’s us against the world. With so many people, activities, and noise vying for our attention, we have found it so important to prioritize our relationship with God and each other above all else. This song was fun to write because it’s quite different from my other music. Many of my songs have an acoustic, laid back sound like Jack Johnson and Jason Mraz. However, It’s Us Against the World incorporates 80s style electronic instruments and upbeat danceable rhythms that bring back memories of my first dates with my wife.” – Josh Ross
