Nashville, TN (16 MARCH 2016) - GRAMMY® -nominated artist Gungor has launched the pre-order of their upcoming release One Wild Life: Spirit. iTunes pre-order includes an immediate download of the tracks “Kiss the Night,” “Hurricane” and “Wonder.” The upcoming record features 11 new songs co-written by Michael and Lisa Gungor and produced by Michael. Spirit is volume two of Gungor’s album trilogy titled One Wild Life, which is being released over the course of 12 months. Spirit debuts on March 25 and can be pre-ordered here.
“One Wild Life: Spirit continues the journey to open the heart to wonder,” said Lisa. “Sometimes it is easy to feel stuck, to feel alone, to feel hopeless. But these songs are our attempt to bring a sense of belonging and a nudge to remember how magical and meaningful life is.”
Last August, Gungor kicked off the music series with One Wild Life: Soul, which debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Christian Albums chart and No. 15 on the iTunes Alternative Albums chart. The third and final record, One Wild Life: Body, will be released later this year.
“This second album of the One Wild Life trilogy is both a celebration of and invitation to dive headfirst into childlike wonder: to leave behind the small, false world of pre-rational superstition or of 'enlightened' modern reductionism and to simply open our eyes and heart to the infinite magic of everything,” shared Michael about the Spirit record.
For a limited time, Gungor is also offering a “season pass” purchase option to instantly download Spirit before it is released to the public. The offer includes early downloads of the forthcoming Spirit and Body albums with high-resolution audio files, chord charts, lyrics, and passholder-only invites to events like album listening parties. This offer is available exclusively at GungorMusic.com and can be purchased here.

ABOUT GUNGOR: Michael and Lisa Gungor are curators of the GRAMMY-nominated musical collective simply known as Gungor. The duo uses their skills as accomplished songwriters and multi-instrumentalists to tell honest and forthright stories - some personal and some allegorical. Together they've tapped their considerable musical reserves to blur genres and break expectations creating a unique, magnetic expression. Gungor is in the middle of their most ambitious creative project yet titled One Wild Life, which is comprised of three full-length albums: Soul, Spirit and Body. On August 7, 2015, they kicked off the album trilogy with One Wild Life: Soul, which debuted as the #15 album on the iTunes Alternative chart. The journey continues with One Wild Life: Spirit, which will be released on March 25, and later One Wild Life: Body. While each record will carry a distinct vibe, the album series presents a body of work that celebrates the adventure and challenges faced by Michael and Lisa Gungor since the release of their album I Am Mountain in 2013.
