NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 06/12/12 -- Atlantic recording artist Cody Simpson has announced early details of his hugely anticipated full length debut album. "PARADISE" arrives everywhere on October 2nd. The album is preceded by the "PREVIEW TO PARADISE" EP, out today. The EP is highlighted by "Got Me Good," which recently premiered on Radio Disney and "Wish You Were Here" featuring Becky G (Kemosabe Records). Cody will perform "Got Me Good" on Live with Kelly on July 4th and the official companion video -- directed by Cameron Duddy -- can be viewed on Cody's YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/user/CodySimpsonMusic.
Simpson -- who was recently named "Favorite Aussie Superstar" at the 2012 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards -- will celebrate the impending release of "PARADISE" by teaming up with Big Time Rush for a massive North American tour (see below itinerary). The dates get underway July 5th at Columbus, Ohio's Nationwide Arena and then continue through mid-September -- for details and ticket information, please see www.codysimpson.com.
With over 2.6 million Twitter followers, over 3 million Facebook likes and more than 128 million YouTube views, 15 year old Cody Simpson is already an indisputable phenomenon. The Australian-born star made a stunning chart debut last summer as his "COAST TO COAST" EP entered the SoundScan/Billboard 200 at #12. "COAST TO COAST" was highlighted by the hit single, "On My Mind" which proved a top 40 favorite at Pop radio outlets nationwide, having also hit #1 at Radio Disney (his second chart-topper at the network). The "On My Mind" companion video -- directed by Travis Kopach (Panic! At The Disco, 3OH!3, Boys Like Girls) -- is also a certified YouTube blockbuster with over 14 million views and counting at Cody's official YouTube channel.
2012 is quickly shaping up as a banner year for Cody. Having kicked things off with his own sold out "Welcome To Paradise Tour," Simpson was among the top stars invited to participate in the 134th annual White House Easter Egg Roll.
