Different Kind of Love
Dave Pittman is a hero to many. The Arkansas native’s soulful vocals were introduced to millions during his appearance on American Idol’s 9th season. But it was his inspiring life journey with Tourette Syndrome that resonated with the country’s heart. Dave’s debut album featured “Crazy Brave,” the song borne from Neil Patrick Harris’ tribute during Idol. And now he is set to bow his much-anticipated sophomore recording, Different Kind of Love, January 11. Produced by Jay Speight and Tyrus Morgan—whose combined production and writing credits include Trace Adkins, NewSong, Unspoken and Ginny Owens, among others—the seven song set features six original selections, along with a fresh arrangement of the beloved hymn “I’d Rather Have Jesus.”
Highlights of Different Kind of Love include the title-cut, an upbeat declaration of God’s steadfast love, with guest vocals from acclaimed husband/wife duo Seth & Nirva; worshipful anthem “Worthy”; and "Fall To Pieces" and “Fight To Win,” both co-penned by Pittman—the latter a love song for his wife celebrating their commitment amidst life’s ups and downs.
Spotlighting some of Christian music’s finest writers and musicians, Different Kind of Love features songwriting credits from Selah’s Todd Smith, Benji Cowart, Daniel Doss and Brian Hitt, among others. The project also includes contributions from NewSong’s Matt Butler (cello); Joel Rousseau (electric guitar) and David Ray (piano).—the collection is ultimately a musical reflection of Dave’s hope and faith in Christ.
