AMY GRANT PUTS NEW SPIN ON OLD HITS WITH FIRST CAREER REMIX ALBUM by The Media Collective on 2014-06-17 10:35:44
Nashville, Tenn. (June 17, 2014) – Six-time GRAMMY® Award winner Amy Grant has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, with numerous singles landing on Top 40 charts, and now she is bringing new life to some of her biggest hits with her first career remix album In Motion: The Remixes, set to release on August 19. The album will feature a collection of Amy's biggest songs, remixed by well known remix engineers and DJs. With hits like “Baby Baby,” “Every Heartbeat,” and “That’s What Love Is For,” Amy's first career remix album brings a new sound to the songs that have defined her three-decade career.
In Motion: The Remixes will be available for pre-order on July 22. When fans pre-order the album, they will instantly receive the song "Baby, Baby," remixed by GRAMMY®-nominated producer, DJ and remixer, Dave Audé. The original version of the song topped the Billboard Hot 100 Chart for two consecutive weeks in 1991.
On Monday, Billboard exclusively premiered the remixed version of "Baby, Baby," which can be heard here.
"Remixing 'Baby, Baby' has definitely been one of the highlights of my career," Audé said. "I loved this song when it was released in 1991, and I still love hearing it today; you can't say that about many records 23 years later. 'Baby, Baby' has crossed genres, and I'm hoping my remix will add yet another genre to this timeless classic."
"I never could have anticipated that these songs from an earlier chapter in my life could be filled with such renewed energy and fresh production," remarked Grant. "I am humbled and honored that these amazingly talented producers have leant their gifts to my songs. They have given me reason to want to get up and dance again!"

Having earned three multi-platinum albums, six platinum albums and four gold albums along with ten Top 40 pop singles and seventeen Top 40 Adult Contemporary tracks as well as a string of Contemporary Christian chart-toppers, Amy had no shortage of hits to choose from for the remix album.
