Centricity Music recording artist Jason Gray has combined insightful and heartfelt lyrics with infectious pop melodies for over a decade. This bestselling, multiple No. 1 and Top 5 hitmaking songwriter releases his long-awaited, seven-song Reorder EP today (Oct. 2) to digital and streaming outlets globally. The EP is the third volume of his 18-song Order Disorder Reorder LP that releases Oct. 23.
Part one of his new album, Order, released just over a year ago, features the Top 10 Billboard Christian AC chart radio hit “I’m Gonna Let It Go” and explores topics “when things are more or less going the way you hope.” Part two, Disorder, released March 20, features the Top 20 Billboard AC Indicator chart hit single “Remind Me You’re Here” and is a group of honest, transformative songs about when order falls apart. The final chapter of Gray’s new album, Reorder, features the hopeful declaration “Right on Time” and the radio single “Glory Days,” and is about coming out the other side of our hardship “as wiser, stronger, more humble and compassionate versions of ourselves.”
“I released the Order EP a year ago. Then, as fate would have it, the Disorder EP released the week we went into national lockdown (sorry everybody—I didn’t realize how much power I had). Since then, I’ve been working hard to do my part and get Reorder finished and out into the world to see if it’ll help,” laughs Gray.
“All joking aside, I do hope the music is helpful for people. That’s why I wrote them,” he continues. ”Reorder brings the Order Disorder and Reorder cycle to completion with seven new songs about lessons learned on the other side of adversity. This was the part of the story I’ve always been most excited about.”
The cascading release schedule of Order Disorder Reorder has been divided into three parts “to give time and space to reflect on one part of the journey before digging into the next,” Gray says.

Playing the new music and fan favorites outdoors in non-traditional, socially-distanced atmospheres or indoors for churches with less than a couple hundred in attendance, Gray has become one of Centricity Music’s most active touring artists. Following the cancellation of his full-production tour with another band due to COVID-19, Gray is able to effectively lead events with just a guitar, pedalboard and a bevy of hit songs.
“While touring schedules have come to almost a complete halt, Christian artist Jason Gray found a way to deliver intimate, small, live performances that he said met a need for community and connection,” shares American Songwriter in a story on Gray’s touring that ran today.
“I wanted to build handrails for people in the storms of life,” Gray shares in the article. “Handrails to give them a sense of being secure and anchored, something to hold onto that hopefully might reduce their anxiety and sense of confusion.”
