Razor & Tie have set a May 22nd 2012 release date for Jon McLaughlin's new studio album, Promising Promises.
The album's first single, "Summer Is Over" featuring Sara Bareilles is on sale now. "Summer Is Over" will impact Hot AC radio the week of February 27th.
Jon McLaughlin recently wrapped up a national fall co-headlining tour with Stephen Kellogg & The Sixers and will tour extensively this year in support of this new release.
In September of 2011, McLaughlin released a self-financed/self produced independent album, Forever If Ever. The forthcoming album Promising Promises will be a completely updated and remixed/remastered version of that album which will include all new artwork and packaging, three brand new songs along with the addition of Jon's duet with Sara Bareilles on the album's lead single, "Summer Is Over."
"It's so refreshing to find a group of people who have so much experience in the music business and are still so passionate about music," comments Jon McLaughlin. "I feel like I've found the right fit with Razor & Tie and I could not be more excited about working with them!"
"We are so pleased to announce Jon's addition to the Razor & Tie family," comments Pete Giberga, Vice President of A&R for Razor & Tie. "An accomplished pianist and singer for many years, Jon has written and produced a truly exceptional album that we believe will serve as a benchmark for his career for years to come. I personally could not be more proud to be associated with Jon and Promising Promises."
