1998 Faith Hill – Faith

Faith is the third studio album by country artist Faith Hill, released in 1998. Due to the success of the single “This Kiss” in Australia and the UK, the album was released under the title Love Will Always Win, featuring the title track, a new version of “Piece of My Heart” and two new versions of “Let Me Let Go”, which replace “You Give Me Love”, “My Wild Frontier”, “Just to Hear You Say That You Love Me” and the original version of “Let Me Let Go”. In some countries, “It Matters to Me”, the title track and hit single from Hill’s second album, is also included as a bonus track. “Better Days” was previously recorded by Bekka & Billy on their debut album. “Love Will Always Win” was later issued as a single by Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood from Brooks’ album The Lost Sessions. “I Love You” was originally recorded by Celine Dion for her album, Falling into You. The album was released on April 21, 1998 and was certified six-times Platinum by the RIAA for shipments of over six million copies in the United States.
