Haley Reinhart Wants to See You Shake and Roll (and Maybe Your Dog, Too) – Reinhart is having a busy few months. She recently got back from a two-week tour in Australia with Postmodern Jukebox. In December, she’ll have her voice-acting debut on the animated Netflix series F is For Family, alongside Bill Burr and Laura Dern. A new single, “Better,” comes out this fall, followed by an EP of the same name in January. The six tracks on the EP, released by Ole, were written over three years, mostly with Swedish songwriter Anders Grahn. They express how much Reinhart feels she’s grown and blossomed in that time.
