“I truly feel like this is the most vulnerable music I’ve ever written. I decided to not hide behind my own metaphors and poetry and however difficult it was to write, I told the truth. I wrote this in the midst of a breakup and I truly felt so alone. In hindsight, I think I wrote the album that I needed to hear at that time. So, my hope is that it does the same for you. I hope this album can be the hand that wipes the tears from your cheeks, the shiver down your spine when you feel like yourself again and the lightness in your spirit when you have closure…even if its just for a fleeting moment.” – Bishop Briggs
CHAMPION follows Church of Scars, Briggs’s widely acclaimed album that exploded early last year and debuted Top 10 on the Billboard Album Charts. The tracks join Briggs’s earlier critically acclaimed singles, including “Wild Horses”, “White Flag”, and RIAA Platinum certified “River”.
Since emerging in 2017, Bishop positioned herself to empower. Tallying over 2 billion cumulative streams, she earned a platinum certification for her breakthrough single “River". Meanwhile, her 2018 full-length debut, Church of Scars, made its way to the Top 10 on the Billboard Album Chart. In its wake, praise came from Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Billboard, NPR, and more. Known for seismic and stage-shaking performances, she not only sold out her two headline tours, but she also ignited Coachella and Lollapalooza as well as American Idol and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Among other accolades, she garnered a nod in the category of “MTV Push Artist of the Year” at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards and contributed a striking rendition of INXS’s “Never Tear Us Apart” to the Fifty Shades Freed trailer and soundtrack. With a new album and a next-level European and North American headline tour, 2019 is set to be Bishop’s biggest year yet.
