With a new album, Paradise, hitting the shelves October 2, and a new YouTube movie, Finding Cody, out today, Australian singer-songwriter Cody Simpson has been beyond busy this summer! But we managed to catch up with Cody to talk about the YouTube flick, his summer tour, and what we can expect to hear on 'Paradise!'
J-14: What can fans expect from "Finding Cody"?
Cody Simpson: It's something different -- it's unique and fun. We put a lot of time and effort into this, and I know my fans will love it.
J-14: Where did the idea for an interactive YouTube movie come from?
Cody Simpson: My record label came to me and said they wanted to shoot an interactive adventure movie that took place at one of my concerts, so we sat down with them and started brainstorming ideas!
J-14: And you're just wrapping up your summer tour right now! What's up next for you?
Cody Simpson: We are doing like ten or twelve shows in Europe -- like, England, France, and Germany. I've never been there before so we just wanted to go over and see the fans!
J-14: You're new album 'Paradise' is coming out soon too! How would you describe it?
Cody Simpson: Summer memories! It's just like really fun music and there's definitely something there for all ages. Not necessarily just for my younger fans!
J-14: Why should everyone go and pick up 'Paradise' when it comes out?
Cody Simpson: It's my first album and I just want you guys to check it out and hear what I have to offer. There's just a lot of great music you can listen to, like if you're going down to the beach -- it definitely suits that vibe!
