Rimes Shares New Single
“I’ll be singing LovE into your hearts tonight, as the first song from ‘CHANT: The Human & The Holy’ will be all yours from midnight locally,” Rimes posted. “You can now pre-save the record on @spotify to get #SingLovEIntoTheWorld as soon as it is released, or check all other streaming platforms tomorrow to listen. Sending you so much LovE!”
The album is due out this Friday, Nov. 20, according to Billboard. It marks a distinct change for the country singer, who has packed the album with 12 tracks of “mantras and messages” instead of country songs.
A Bumpy Road to Inner Peace
Rimes is rolling out the album alongside her Soul of EverLe candles and a new podcast, “Wholly Human.” The podcast will launch on iHeartRadio on Nov. 30.
Rimes has had a bumpy ride since she became a country music star in her early teens, Nashville.com reports. After she turned 30, she sought treatment for depression and anxiety. That experience led to a fascination with breathwork and meditation.
Now the singer is blending her hobby with her career as she chants her way through 12 tracks.
“Chanting really is, for me, about using my own vibration and my own voice for my own healing,” she told Reuters.
Rimes said she got the idea for the soundtrack during meditation and while she was on stage.
Speaking of her time on stage, Rimes is approaching her 25th year in the music industry as of 2021.
“It’s pretty amazing to have that kind of longevity in a business that is incredibly fickle,” she said. “So, I’m very grateful.”
