Australian singer/songwriter Cody Simpson will be releasing his upcoming album titled FREE out June 23, 2015 via Coast House Records / Banana Beat Records, which is also available for pre-order. The album, produced by Cisco Adler, marks Cody’s first release as an independent artist. Simpson even claims that this album is, “the first time I’ve had the creative freedom to do what I want”.
When fans pre-order the album on iTunes, they will receive instant downloads of new tracks “Flower,” “New Problems,” and “Thotful,”. The album contains features by Donovan Frankenreiter and G. Love on “It Don’t Matter” and “Love Yourself,” respectively. Cody first gave listeners a sneak peek of his new sound on RollingStone.com with his track “Flower” and single artwork created by Miley Cyrus. The single artwork can be also be seen on limited edition t-shirts of which a percentage of proceeds will go to Miley’s charity, the Happy Hippie Foundation.
At just 18, Cody has enjoyed quite an impressive career to date. His 2013 album Surfer’s Paradise featured collaborations with Ziggy Marley and Asher Roth and landed in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200. He toured Europe and the U.S. as direct support for Justin Bieber and released his official autobiography, Welcome To Paradise: My Journey, through Harper Collins.
