Stockholm Syndrome Album

Derek Webb

About Stockholm Syndrome

Stockholm Syndrome is the fifth solo studio album release from singer-songwriter Derek Webb, released in the UK on August 31, 2009, in the US on September 1, and released digitally on September 7. The mostly Electronic album was a radical departure in style from the guitar-driven folk and rock for which he had become known. Themes on the album surround asking difficult questions of Christians on sexuality, race, and social justice. It was critically acclaimed and commercially successful, becoming Webb's first solo album to break into the Billboard Top 200 albums chart. The album generated controversy for its use of profanity (particularly the use of the word "shit," in the context of a harsh spiritual object lesson in the song "What Matters More") and references to alcohol and sexuality, to the degree that it was originally refused by his record label. After an elaborate online scavenger hunt Webb staged for his fans to "unlock" the song for free distribution, his label conceded to releasing a "clean version" and an "explicit version" of the album, the latter of which was only available directly from Webb at his shows, or by ordering online
