it talks about selling your SUV, and that is the main thing people have focused on. But I also said sell your house, sell your stocks and security. Why are those not a big deal? Maybe because Americans really find a lot of their worth and identity in what kind of car they drive.

In this week’s RELEVANT Podcast, critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Derek Webb sits down with the RELEVANT magazine editorial staff to talk about his new album and the reaction his somewhat controversial messages are receiving.

In the interview, Webb told RELEVANT that the title song, “Mockingbird,” was written to give credit to the leaders who influenced his thinking as he wrote the songs on this album. Mockingbird focuses on social issues and decries many aspects of modern American Christianity. Critics have called Webb’s newest release his most provocative project yet, and the album continues to raise eyebrows and spur discussions nationwide.

About his song “Rich Young Ruler” Webb said, “it talks about selling your SUV, and that is the main thing people have focused on. But I also said sell your house, sell your stocks and security. Why are those not a big deal? Maybe because Americans really find a lot of their worth and identity in what kind of car they drive.”

The 45-minute podcast includes a live performance of “Rich Young Ruler” and “Mockingbird” from the album, which was released Dec. 27 by INO Records. Webb is currently touring with Jars of Clay. For more information about tour dates and his latest album, Mockingbird, visit http://www.derekwebb.com.
