Free Christmas Music From Steven Curtis Chapman

It's Christmas time again with Steven Curtis Chapman—his holiday album, Joy, is featured on this week's Free Music Friday.

Joy is Steven Curtis Chapman’s fourth Christmas record, and is particularly meaningful to him as both an artist and father. After losing his youngest adopted daughter, Maria Sue, in a tragic accident at their home in Franklin, Tennessee, in 2008, Chapman says this project has given him “wind in his sails” and provided him the opportunity to “have fun and smile.”

“Many know that the last few years have been a difficult journey for my family and me following the loss of our daughter Maria,” Chapman said. “So many have prayed for us and encouraged us, and having the opportunity to write, record, and share this new music really feels like the beginning of a new season . . . a season of joy.”

The Christmas album features six holiday classics plus seven new, original Chapman songs, with the upbeat single, “Christmas Time Again,” offered today as TCW’s Free Music Friday track.

“'Christmas Time Again’ is one of the most fun songs I have recorded in-studio,” Chapman said. “It was actually one of the first songs I wrote for the Joy CD, and probably is responsible for the title just because it was such a joyful, fun song to write and record.”

Joy follows Chapman’s previous seasonal releases: The Music of Christmas (1995), Christmas is All in the Heart (2003) and All I Really Want for Christmas (2005).
