Faith Hill Gets Ready For A Good Cry

Country-pop princess to release fifth album in October.

The titles of Faith Hill's albums in chronological order read kind of like a haiku about the cycle of a relationship:

Take me as I am/ It matters to me/ Faith, breathe, cry

It seems unlikely that the multiplatinum country-pop artist titled her upcoming fifth album, Cry, just to meet that criteria, but after all the swooning love songs from her 1999 record Breathe, which sold 8 million copies, it's interesting to note the more plaintive title of the disc, which will come out in October.

On Thursday, the title track hit radio. The song originally wasn't scheduled to be released that early, but after the song was leaked over the Internet, Warner Bros. Nashville decided to service it right away.

"This record has been a long and rewarding process," Hill said in a press statement. "The emotions that were involved in this process, whether happiness, accomplishment or the sheer beauty of some of these songs, I thought, lent itself so well to the title."
