It is done: Derek Webb’s “Stockholm Syndrome” album release + new free song

Well, it’s done.  After all the drama, Derek Webb’s new album “Stockholm Syndrome” is set for release this Tuesday.  Apparently, if you pre-order the album off his website on Tuesday, you will be able to get a free download of the entire album immediately.

But –

this revelation did not come before another song – the song of the album perhaps – was released.  Anyone who has been following this situation knows that Derek has been releasing “stems” (or pieces of the song) for a while.  This is the song with the cursing that started this whole thing.  It is a song that has been titled “What Matters More” and it has to do with the Church’s treatment of homosexuals.  So without further ado, here are all the songs that have been released off of Derek Webb’s newest album “Stockholm Syndrome”.  Enjoy and be sure to download them all on Tuesday.

Thanks again to Shane for the update.  The name above each streaming song is a link to the actual file for you to download.  Right-click or whatever you do to download these things.

“What Matters More?”

“Freddie, Please”

“Heaven”

“The Spirit vs. the Kick-Drum”

It sounds like the new song is what inspired (or vice versa) Webb’s recent purchase of the domain GiveAShit.org, which he plans on using as a fundraising site.  The site’s had no content on it for a while, but just now as I saw that it has a black screen on it, apparently holding the spot for new content coming soon (Tuesday, perhaps?).  We’ll see.

Lastly, I heard from musical artist and friend Joel Rakes (so if it’s not true, blame him – or the people he follows on Twitter) that there was also a documentary done about this whole thing, so keep an eye out for that.  And check out Joel’s stuff while you’re at it.

Here are other sites concerning Webb and the album. Please visit these as well to support the artist and his craft.

  1. I’m so ready for this album. It seems like its a whole lot more political and… dare I say, angry that a lot of his previous albums. It should be interesting to see what is all on there. I don’t think this is the end of it all honestly.

  2. I am a tad disappointed in Derek Webb. Sadly, that title does not reflect Ephesians 4:29 and can be a major stumbling block for women and men in Christ Jesus.

  3. i think you’re right, Jenn. i’m starting to come to that conclusion as well, but people keep reminding me that much of what the prophets said to the “Church” in the Old Testament was just as rough, vulgar, and crass (for back then). i’m wondering if “building up” (Eph4:29) for some people may look different for them than just nice sweet words. some people need to be brought low before they can be built up. but i’m still thinking through all this.
