American Idol season 10 singer Haley Reinhart releases her long-awaited sophomore album, Better on Friday, via ole and its artist development arm red dot, which have released an official press release for the new set:
The acclaimed singer-songwriter Haley Reinhart has announced the release of her sophomore album, Better, April 29th on ole and red dot. It features the current title track single, “Better,” which had its exclusive video premiere on Billboard and is already being enthusiastically supported by iHeartRadio.
“The most exciting thing about making a new record is that you have an opportunity to tell new stories,” Reinhart reflects on Better. “The songs – the lyrics and melodies – have been such a big part of my life for the past four years, and really define true moments of my journey.”
The new album features 11 soulful tracks infused with rock, pop and the spirit of Motown, created with elite co-writers including Rob Kleiner, Sir Charles Prince, Anders Grahn, and Mynority. Reinhart’s release of Better follows a big 2015 spurred by the success of her intimate rendition of “Can’t Help Falling in Love With You,” which has sold 193,000+ units to date with over 16 million Spotify streams.
Reinhart, who first captured national attention with her top-three finish in the 10th season of American Idol, will follow the release of Better with a national tour beginning June 3rd.
I just checked out the album out and it’s the singer’s best yet. Haley brings back funk, soul and rock sounds from 60’s and 70’s, with a contemporary twist. The result is totally FRESH and sexy–Haley sounds better than ever. A+ songs, the band she’s assembled is incredible. It’s amazing what an artist can accomplish without a major label breathing down their necks.
Haley is also signed to a worldwide co-publishing deal with ole. Click to check out the full schedule of tour dates. Download Better from iTunes or Amazon. Or click to purchase old fashioned CDs.
