GRAMMY®-nominated artist and Christian Music’s best-selling new artist in 10 years, Francesca Battistelli released her third studio album, "If We’re Honest," on Tuesday, April 22.

Her two previous albums, debut release "My Paper Heart" and sophomore effort "Hundred More Years," hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Christian Albums chart and garnered Battistelli a GRAMMY® nomination and Dove Awards’ 2011 “Artist of the Year” honors.

In addition, "My Paper Heart" received RIAA Gold certification marking the only debut album from a CCM artist in 10 years to receive the status. Last Thursday, she also received a Gold record for her second single “Free To Be Me” which spent ten consecutive weeks at No. 1 on CHR and two consecutive weeks at No. 1 on AC Monitored.

This Friday, Battistelli will perform the album’s lead single, “Write Your Story,” No. 1 this week at Hot AC/CHR and AC, on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.” Earlier this year she made her national morning TV debut performing it on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Battistelli was also featured on SiriusXM’s “The Message: Delivered Live” for a 60-minute special performing songs from If We’re Honest for a live studio audience that will be rebroadcast Saturday, April 26 at 8 a.m. EST and Sunday at 3 p.m and 9 p.m. EST.

The 11-track album and 15-track deluxe version of "If We’re Honest" is available everywhere and on iTunes.
