American Idol favorite Colton Dixon is releasing his first new music of the year today, with the pop anthem, “Build a Boat” (Atlantic). Written by Dixon along with co-writers and producers Pete Becker, Mikey Gormley, Johan Lindbrant and Seth Mosley, the track, along with a lyric video, is available at all DSPs today and will impact Christian radio on June 10.
“’Build a Boat’ is an anthem for anyone willing to stand up or step out for what they believe in,” Dixon says. “Just as Noah stepped out to construct an ark in the middle of a drought, faith can look a little crazy sometimes. I hope this song encourages you to go beyond what’s comfortable to experience the reward waiting on the other side of crazy faith.”
“Build a Boat” is Dixon’s latest single since signing with Atlantic records in 2020 and releasing his self-titled EP containing the No. 1 hits “Miracles,” “Devil Is A Liar,” and his 2021 single, “Made To Fly.”
