The album is produced by Christopher Stevens, Seth Mosley, Jeremy Edwardson and Joshua Silverberg with Smith as executive producer.

It is Smith's first studio album of new material since Wonder and it's his first studio worship album. Christian singer Kari Jobe is featured on the song "The One That Really Matters." The Deluxe Edition of Sovereign features a live DVD of the album. Sovereign tops the Billboard Top Christian Albums and debuted and peaked at number 10 on the Top 200 Albums chart.
