D.Royul Releases New Album
After 2 years since his last release, D.Royul has released an all new full length album titled "Under The Terebinth Tree". 4 year since his last full album, D.Royul took time to make sure he got his second album right. Featuring artist J. Carter, Isaiah53, K.A.S.E., and Amasiah, this follow up album to D.Royul's "Story Of A M.O.G." will be less of a thematic story like its predecessor
"Its closer to a book of psalms", D.Royul says. "God told me what to write, and I wrote what He said. But its not just telling one story all the way through. Each song is a concept or idea that is focused on a specific truth that is experience when you serve God. So, its coming at you from a few different angles".
