FRANCESCA BATTISTELLI RELEASES DELUXE EDITION OF HUNDRED MORE YEARS TODAY

2011 Dove Awards’ “Artist of the Year” and “Female Vocalist of the Year,” Francesca Battistelli, who first captivated fans worldwide with her gold-certified debut album, My Paper Heart, has released a deluxe version of her sophomore album, Hundred More Years, on Fervent Records on iTunes. In 2011, Hundred More Years debuted at No. 1 on the Christian SoundScan Album Chart and No. 16 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The deluxe edition also features her current Top 20 hit single, “Strangely Dim,” a remake of Peter Gabriel’s hit, “In Your Eyes” which is also included on The Bible: Music Inspired By The Epic Mini-Series and three additional new tunes. In addition, Battistelli also just launched the second leg of her “Hundred More Years Tour” with special guests The Afters, Love & The Outcome and Kyle Sherman this past weekend in Canada.

Hundred More Years Deluxe Edition, which is available now at all digital and physical retailers, features the full original album in addition to five new tracks including, “Strangely Dim,” “Hold Out For Love,” “Something More,” “Trampoline,” and “In Your Eyes.” It also includes the original demo of “This Is The Stuff” and an unplugged version “Angel By Your Side.” Grammy-nominee and Dove Awards’ “Producer of the Year” Ian Eskelin (Chris August, Sidewalk Prophets, Stellar Kart) produced the album with Seth Mosely (Newsboys, Sanctus Real, for KING & COUNTRY) sharing producer credit on “Strangely Dim.” Fans can also purchase the Hundred More Years Deluxe Set at store.francescamusic.com which includes the deluxe CD, a digital download and an autographed “Strangely Dim” poster.
