Get ready, Simpsonizers — Cody Simpson just released the cover and tracklist for his new EP, The Acoustic Sessions! And if you've ever heard Cody sing acoustically, you're probably freaking out as much as we are.
The five-song album will be released on November 19th and features the singer playing his beloved guitar and ukelele, which is definitely all we need. It also includes a Christmas song to help everyone get in the holiday spirit a little early this year!
The Acoustic Sessions:
We caught up with Cody yesterday at the first signing for his new book, and he was really excited to talk to us about the EP, explaining that the songs are all "fan-favorites — present day and past" that he's "reinterpreted in an acoustic, organic style." He's also pumped about a tour to go along with it!
"[My EP] will also be accompanied by an acoustic tour in January, which I haven’t told many people yet," Cody EXCLUSIVELY told J-14.com. "I’ve always dreamed of an acoustic tour. I’m excited for that."
Not only does Cody have an upcoming tour, but he's also working on his third album, which he already has a great feeling about.
"I recently got in the studio to work on my third album for next year — which I think for a lot of artists, the third album is the lucky one," Cody said. "John Mayer, his third album was lucky — same with Jack Johnson."
Cody said that this album is going to be different than previous ones because he feels like he's really developed his own style of music.
"Surfers Paradise was a great learning experience for me to fall into my own sound," he told us. "Next year I'm turning 17 and I’m ready to show people how I’ve matured and grown up. 16 years old is iffy to do that, but 17, through my music and concepts of sounds, I’ll have the ability to be more clever. I want to create things that are more timeless. It’s hard to explain it until you hear it. But I’ve already worked on three tracks. It’s going to be really rad!"
Are you excited for all of Cody's new music and upcoming tour? Let us know in the comments!
