Atlantic Records unveil ‘The Shack’ Soundtrack featuring some of country’s biggest stars

Atlantic Records have released “THE SHACK: MUSIC FROM AND INSPIRED BY THE ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE,” the companion album to the film from Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment label.

 The Shack hits theatres in the US on Friday, March 3rd and slated to air in the UK in cinemas June 9, 2017.

Featuring previously unreleased music from a wide range of contemporary stars, “THE SHACK: MUSIC FROM AND INSPIRED BY THE ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE” has already begun garnering critical acclaim.
 Rolling Stone Country called “Keep Your Eyes On Me,” Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s addition to the album, an “ethereal love ballad [that] showcases the duo exchanging lines, culminating with a soaring chorus and dramatic orchestral flourishes.” That song, co-penned by McGraw and Hill along with Lori McKenna and Shane McAnally, marks the couple’s first songwriting collaboration and is featured in a trailer for the film.

People magazine called “Love Goes On,” a collaboration from multi-GRAMMY® Award-winning singer/songwriter Kelly Clarkson & GRAMMY®-nominated soul artist Aloe Blacc, “close to divine,” and VIBE said of GRAMMY®-winner Lecrae’s “River of Jordan (feat. Breyan Isaac),” “With the help of collaborator Breyan Isaac, the emcee perfectly captures [The Shack’s main character] Mack’s struggles in song form.”
People Country called chart-topping country duo Dan + Shay’sWhen I Pray For You,” a “tear-jerker.”  Dan + Shay will perform the song on Wednesday, March 1 on “Today,” and the song will impact country radio in early March. A video for the track is available here: https://atlanti.cr/wheniprayvideo, and the song is predominantly featured in trailers, TV, and radio spots for the film.

In addition to the above, the album also features offerings from CMA and ACM-winning solo country artist Dierks Bentley; multi-platinum country artist Lady Antebellum; 2x GRAMMY® Award-winners for KING & COUNTRY; 6x chart-topping country artist Brett Eldredge; GRAMMY®-nominated rock band NEEDTOBREATHE (Feat. Lauren Daigle); and RIAA platinum worship band Hillsong UNITED.

“It was such a crazy experience being involved with this whole project,” said Joel Houston of Hillsong UNITED. “The book has had phenomenal success around the world, and the production level and actors in the movie is pretty exciting! We had the opportunity to watch a screening of it, and it is inspiring that such a high end movie would be made. It was an honour to write a song for the soundtrack, something we have actually had little experience in. We hope, as with everything we do, that people take away a portion of the greater message about Jesus!”
A video piece showcasing the album artists discussing the stories behind their songs and their thoughts on The Shack will premiere in the upcoming weeks.

Based on the New York Times best-selling novel with over 22 million copies in print worldwide, The Shack takes us on a father’s life-transforming journey that will show him the ultimate truth about love, loss and forgiveness.

MACKENZIE “MACK” ALLEN PHILLIPS (Sam Worthington) enjoys a blissful life with his wife and their three children, until the unthinkable happens and his youngest daughter MISSY is abducted from their vacation campsite. Evidence indicates Missy has been murdered, but her body is never recovered.  The tragedy sends Mack spiralling into “the great sadness” that isolates him from family and friends, causing him to question his innermost fundamental beliefs.  Teetering on the edge of self-destruction, he receives a mysterious letter, apparently from God, urging him back to the scene of the crime—an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness.
Despite his doubts and fears, Mack journeys to the wintry mountain woods to revisit the most agonizing moments of his life and encounters an enigmatic trio of strangers led by a woman named PAPA (Octavia Spencer), at the shack. Through them, Mack will find important truths that will transform his understanding of Missy’s tragedy and change his life forever.
