Hot Chelle Rae Set New Album release
The album was produced by Emanuel Kiriakou (Jason Derulo, Selena Gomez), Evan Bogart (Adam Lambert, Rihanna), S*A*M & Sluggo (Boys Like Girls, Cobra Starship, Gym Class Heroes) and up-and-coming production trio Andrew Goldstein, Dan Book, and Alexei Misoul.
"It's funny because the music we listen to has always centered around pop," says lead guitarist Nash Overstreet. "And I think the success of 'Tonight Tonight' showed us that a lot of people like the same kind of music that we do."
"Those songs set the stage for WHATEVER," says the band's lead singer and guitarist Ryan Follese. "It's loaded with feel-good, windows-down tunes that people can relate to and that are fun to play live." Other album highlights include quirky break-up song "Honestly," be-yourself anthem "Beautiful Freaks," finger-snapper "Radio" (featuring rising rapper Bei Maejor), as well as heartfelt tracks like "Keep You With Me" and "Why Don't You Love Me," which features pop solo artist Demi Lovato.
Hot Chelle Rae, which is lead singer/guitarist Ryan Follese, lead guitarist Nash Overstreet, bassist Ian Keaggy and drummer Jamie Follese, has been nominated for a 2011 American Music Award for "Favorite New Artist." The show will air live on Sunday, November 20th at 8/7c on ABC.
Hot Chelle Rae recently wrapped a U.S. tour with The Script and will be performing a handful of headlining shows in Europe early next month. In early 2012 they will hit the road for a headlining U.S. tour before heading to Australia in March for an arena tour with Taylor Swift.
The track-listing for WHATEVER is as follows:
