Amy Grant to release first album of new songs in decade

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Amy Grant is set to release her first full album of all new songs in 10 years.

The Grammy-winning Christian recording artist's "How Mercy Looks From Here" will be available May 14.

The album was produced by Marshall Altman and includes guest vocalists James Taylor, Carole King, Sheryl Crow, Will Hoge and Eric Pasley, who wrote the only song not penned by Grant on the album. Grant's husband, Vince Gill, also makes an appearance.

The Nashville-based singer-songwriter is among the most successful Christian artists with multi-platinum album sales and crossover success on the pop music charts.

Grant started the album after a conversation with her mother, who passed away in 2011, and promises "no filler" in a news release announcing the record.

Amy Grant has been my favorite singer since I was in my early 20's. She always seems to capture the feeling of the times and she is always now on my ipod. It will be awesome to have some totally new tunes to enjoy.
