Christina Grimmie Signs with Island Records, Teases New SIngle

There has been talk of Christina Grimmie signing with Island Records, and in a new interview with a local Niagara Falls newspaper, The Voice 6 third place finisher confirms that the rumors are true:

By season’s end, Levine was so impressed with his protégé that he offered to sign Grimmie to his record label. She wound up signing with Island Records, the home of Florence + The Machine, Drake, Gotye, Leona Lewis and a small Irish upstart that goes by the name U2.

“I’ve actually got an album coming out, hopefully, by somewhere around the end of this year,” Grimmie said. “And I also have a single coming out within the month.”

Of the new material, she teased, “It’s very fun, and it’s very – I wanted it to be very me.

“I’ve done originals in the past. Some are very me; some aren’t very me. I just really want to make this record something to put out there and be like, ‘Hey world, hey people that knew me from ‘The Voice,’ this is Christina Grimmie’s brand-new album, and this is what you’re in for when you buy it.’

“Because I’ve been on tour, I haven’t exactly gotten to write as much, but I’m kind of starting the process. As far as the single goes, it’s just – it’s a jam. It’s fun, and I think people are going to dig it.”
