Cody Simpson Talks First Times and New Projects

(Radio.com) Teen heartthrob, Cody Simpson, is riding high off his single "Pretty Brown Eyes." So high, in fact, he's eager to release his new single, "La Da Dee," and even a book. Simpson stopped by 92.3 NOW in NYC to tell DJ Toro all about his new projects.

Coming this October, fans will be able to pick up Cody's first book, "Cody Simpson: Welcome to Paradise: My Journey." "We're filling it with a bunch of photos and stuff," Cody said. "I wanted to be able to share my stories through my own words, because Wikipedia is sort of, whatever."

The written word is a new kind of endeavor for Simpson, but he said having a book is going to help him reach his audience in a more genuine way.

"I wanted to sort of help my fans, you know, bring them closer to me," he said. "In everything I do I just want to help them get more personal through the music, whether it's in the music or through a book."

Cody said he remembers the first time he was ever on the radioľat the ripe old age of 13. He was called out of a dinner party out to a car by a friend who knew he was going to be on the air.

"It was a very, very strange but amazing feeling," he said. "I sort of just sat in the car and just, like, listened to it. It was after Katy Perry or something crazy, so it was cool. Especially because I was so young. It was like very, very exciting, especially when you're 13-years-old." Check out a stream of the full interview here.
