Album Pre-Order Begins Today Accompanied By Its Latest Single, “The Edge”

5 May 2023 – Nashville, TN – Dynamic. Distinct. Purposeful. Raw. Honest. These are just a few descriptions of the artistry of songwriter and musician Stephen Stanley. Releasing songs with Capitol CMG since 2020, Stanley announces his debut 14-track album, Divided Frame Of Mind, will release on July 21, 2023. The album’s pre-order begins today accompanied by its latest single, “The Edge.” Click HERE to listen.

The songs that form Divided Frame of Mind, which he wrote and produced with Tedd T (Mutemath, For King & Country), share about mental health and about making choices – confronting life’s darkness and shining a light on it. As Stanley explains, “Sometimes you have to go to that dark place to find the light.”

Initially writing “The Edge” more than a year ago, he shares, “When I began writing it, it started off really dark but I revisited it and remade the music and reworked the melodies. I knew then that it would inform the rest of the album and what I was trying to say. This song is the beginning of the story. While it is one of the darker songs, I knew it was the best place to start and give people a taste of what’s to come on the rest of the project.”

“The Edge” follows lead single “Rest In The Father,” which has 3M in global streams and is currently top 15 at radio. Additionally, a new version of the song featuring Jonathan Traylor was released in April.
