Nashville, Tenn. (March 17, 2017) – GRAMMY® winner Mandisa’s awaited fifth album, Out Of The Dark (Capitol CMG), will arrive on May 19, her first in four years. With 1 million+ records sold, Mandisa is back with a renewed passion for her music, after spending much of the past few years suffering from depression. She is emerging from the pit of depression with a willingness to be totally transparent and vulnerable about her journey. ABC’s Good Morning America will broadcast the exclusive first television interview and performance with Mandisa on April 26, her first in over three years.

“My hope is that people will be on this journey with me,” explains Mandisa. “When I began, I was in a really dark place, but where I am today is so much better and so much lighter!”

The first single, “Unfinished,” lands at radio today following Mandisa’s No. 1 hits “Overcomer” and “Stronger.” In the initial track, she sings, “Not scared to say it; I used to be the one; Preaching it to you; That you could overcome; I still believe it; But it ain’t easy; Cause that world I painted; Where things just all work out; It started changing; And I started having doubts; And it got me so down.”

Mandisa has been traversing 30 arenas across U.S. as part of fellow GRAMMY® winner TobyMac’s “HITS DEEP Tour” alongside Matt Maher, Mac Powell from Third Day, Capital Kings, Ryan Stevenson and Hollyn. The tour will wrap on April 9 at Indianapolis’ Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Out Of The Dark will be available for pre-order on April 7.

    I can not wait to hear you when you come to St. Louis. As someone who has struggled with a food addiction and depression, I have been praying for you! I am so glad you have a new record and the song Unfinished is such an inspiring song, as all your songs are! Keep up the great work! You are an OVERCOMER!

    Mandisa, you were fantastic in NYC on Saturday, 3/18. It takes a humble and beautiful soul to be the real you. God bless you always.

      Yes I too have had problems trying to pre order it also. I read a couple weeks ago on one of her pages that you will be able to pre-order it starting on April 7th.

      I also had trouble ordering mine so I had to end up sending them an email and someone got back with me called Jess the web girl and I finally was able to order it after she gave me the right information and the correct website because every time I would put in my codes it would not work so you will probably have to send an email and explain what is going on.
