What’s up with downloads? iTunes will feature Shawn McDonald’s song “Don’t Walk Away” as a free Discovery Download for one week beginning Tuesday, May 3. The track is from the soulfully acoustic singer/songwriter’s acclaimed debut album, SIMPLY NOTHING.
Indeed, Shawn seems to be everywhere these days. He appears on the April cover of CCM magazine in a photo collage of other buzzworthy musicians including Bono, Switchfoot, and Jeremy Camp and is named among the “10 Artists You Should Know” in that same issue.
McDonald also has the cover story in the new issue of Christian Single magazine, and his uniquely crafted concert album, LIVE IN SEATTLE, hit stores nationwide this past Tuesday (April 26).
LIVE IN SEATTLE was recorded in Shawn’s hometown in January. The 12-song set is a stripped down worship experience featuring vocals, guitar, and cello. The project also includes McDonald’s incredible testimony. He recounts onstage his dramatic journey from substance abuse and drug dealing just a few years ago to a life-changing encounter with Jesus that inspired him to begin writing and singing.
Download “Don’t Walk Away” from the iTunes Inspirational page beginning May 3 at iTunes.com.
