CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 13, 2011) - Alberta-born country superstar Paul Brandt released his first new album today in four years, entitled Give It Away, along with a box set collection, entitled NOW.
Give It Away showcases Brandt exploring new musical and lyrical territory, while remaining true to the sound and voice his fans have come to adore. A diverse collection of songs, Give It Away explores passion, loss, humour and of course, love. The Give It Away album also features revisited versions of Paul's international smash hits "I Do" and "My Heart Has A History".
The title track to Give It Away was inspired by Brandt's interactions and experiences during the filming of Paul Brandt's BUILD IT FORWARD, a documentary series that will air on CMT Canada starting Saturday, September 17th.
The NOW box set is a milestone for Paul after 15 years of recording and international touring and will undoubtedly be an instant favourite among fans. All of the Brand-T catalogue albums are included in the NOW Box Set (Small Towns & Big Dreams, This Time Around, Risk, and A Gift) and have all been recognized with Album of the Year awards. The set also includes Paul's new album Give It Away, a retrospective DVD, the NOW Book, additional previously unreleased material, and a Just As I Am album discount code (Just As I Am is due for release in 2012).
Says Brandt, "It feels great to be back on the scene with new music and a unique box set collection to share with the world. I look forward to connecting with my supporters through my music and concerts this fall. This is the start of so much more to come, and it's really exciting."
