Faith Hill to Release ‘Deep Tracks,’ Unreleased Songs
For the first time in years, Faith Hill fans are about to have some never-before-released music from the singer.
Hill has announced the release of Deep Tracks, which will feature a wide range of songs from past albums that were never released as singles. But there are also three previously unreleased songs among the 13 tracks, titled "Why," "Boy" and "Come to Jesus."
The songs on the collection are selections from across four of Hill's albums that “remain some of my favorites," she says in a press release.
“There have been some amazing songs that I’ve been fortunate enough to record, some that didn’t make it onto albums,” Hill states, “and I thought it would be nice to include a few of those on this album as well.”
"Boy" is one of the most recent songs Hill has recorded, and she says "Why" is a favorite of her husband, Tim McGraw, because "it was and sadly still is today an important message."
"Come to Jesus" has special relevance because of the passing of McGraw's father, baseball great Tug McGraw, as well as Hill's mother, who died recently.
“This is for my mom, who has wanted me to record a gospel album for years,” Hill says. “It is also very personal for our family because I recorded this song during the last couple of weeks that Tug McGraw battled with brain cancer. Tim played him my rough cut, and Tug listened to it multiple times a day until his passing."
Deep Tracks is set for release on Nov. 18. It is Hill's final album in her deal with Warner Bros., which has been her label since 1993. It's unclear if she will work on an entire album of new material after its release; in an appearance on the Bobby Bones Show in October, asked if she planned to release new music, she said, “Yes. I really hope so, yes. It’s going there.”
