On September 9, six-time GRAMMY® winner Amy Grant will revisit her critically acclaimed 1997 album, Behind The Eyes, exactly 25 years to the day of its original release, with a special project: Behind The Eyes (25th Anniversary Expanded Edition). Featuring the twelve tracks from the original album completely remastered, plus 18 bonus tracks, b-sides, demos, and two brand new reimagined tracks by producer Keith Thomas, the album will be available digitally as well as a triple-vinyl package with expansive narratives from Amy and producers Keith Thomas and Wayne Kirkpatrick. For a limited time, the vinyl package will also be signed and numbered by Amy. Digital pre-add and pre-save are available here, and the vinyl pre-order is available exclusively at AmyGrant.com. Fans can look forward to multiple digital singles that will be released ahead of the street date.
“Snapshots of life… that’s what these songs are,” Grant recalls. “Rediscovering so many unreleased tracks was like finding an old roll of undeveloped film 25 years after taking the pictures!”
The first single, available now, is a reimagined version of “Turn This World Around” by Keith Thomas. Click here to listen.
Behind The Eyes was a landmark release showcasing the singer/songwriter side of Amy, and was one of the most honest and vulnerable groupings of songs in her award-winning catalog. Behind The Eyes was Grant’s twelfth studio album and upon release, debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Christian albums chart and No. 8 on the Billboard 200 and spawned two Top 10 hits with “Takes A Little Time” and “Like I Love You”. 2022 marks the first time the original album and the 18 bonus tracks will be available on vinyl.
In support of the anniversary of Behind The Eyes, Amy will launch a 25-city tour in September/October, and each night will include several songs from the project. Dates will be announced soon, with all details available at AmyGrant.com.
