Jesse McCartney: “In Technicolor” Album Out July 22nd!

J Mac fans have been waiting for a new full length album for a long time.  His last studio album, “Departure,” came out in 2008!    But the wait is over:  his new album, “In Technicolor,” will be released on July 22nd!  The album is the companion to the EP Jesse released last December, “In Technicolor Part I.”

We loved the Timberlake-esque vibe of his EP, especially on the track “Back Together!”  We’re looking forward to hearing more of J Mac’s new sound.  And are hoping tour dates are coming soon!

You can pre-order “In Technicolor” on iTunes now, and get the tracks “Back Together,” “Superbad,” “Checkmate”, and “Tie The Knot” now!

Hunter Hayes’ “Storyline” Is Out Now!

Hunter Hayes’ sophomore album, “Storyline,” just debuted at #1 on the Country Charts & #3 overall!  It’s his highest charting album to date, and his second #1 on the country charts.   It’s also one of our favorite albums of the year this far.   On his self-titled debut, Hunter recorded every instrument and vocal himself.  (He plays over 30 instruments).   For “Storyline,” it was a more collaborative process, as Hunter recorded with his touring band:  Sam Ellis, Devin Malone, Matt Utterback, and Steve Sinatra.   Check out our track-by-track review!

“Wild Card”
What a fun way to open a record!  This uptempo song is definitely one of our favorites on this album.  It’s the perfect opening number too, as we saw during our Storyline release week shows!  The song is a nice reminder to always be yourself – you never know who loves your little quirks!

“Storyline”
The title track for Hunter’s sophomore effort was actually written pretty late in the writing process but it’s a great concept of living one’s life – like it’s a story that’s still being written!

“Tattoo”
Likely the second single off the album, Hunter plays this as part of the encore on the “We’re Not Invisible Tour.” Even the first time hearing it, you find yourself singing along. And we basically haven’t stopped singing or listening to it since our first Storyline release week show!   This should be a big summer hit for Hunter!  If it does well, he said at his iHeartRadio show that he’ll get a tattoo of “your name.”

“Still Fallin”
Every album needs a love song! Hunter’s songwriting is definitely showcased in this song. Everyone who has ever been in love can totally relate to what he’s singing about – being with someone for so long and still falling in love with them every minute of every day.

“Invisible”
The first single released from the album is an anthem for anyone who has ever felt powerless and invisible.  The song is especially powerful and moving when the whole arena is singing along.

“You Think You Know Somebody”
If you ever had any doubts as to Hunter’s talent just watch his guitar solos in this song. This is definitely “as angry as it gets” on this album, as Hunter likes to say.  (Hunter’s angriest song would actually be “More Than I Should” – you can literally feel it from the first note he plays)

“Flashlight “
Hunter said this song was written as a follow up to “Faith to Fall Back On.” It’s definitely one to remind you there’s a light at the end of every tunnel and that no matter how dark it gets, there are people right next to you ready to help you find your way.

“Secret Love”
The anthem for every band member that’s ever been told to lie about having a girlfriend (fyi we all know the truth anyway so might as well just be honest). Hunter sings about a secret relationship which just makes us wonder who it could have been (we’re a gossip free zone so we’ll leave the guesses to you!)

“Nothing Like Starting Over”
This track is kind of the anthem for everyone who has ever let out a huge sigh of relief for starting over. Hunter really nailed it with this song, too.

“If It’s Just Me”
We always think this is Dan+Shay when the song starts, but once we realize it’s Hunter, we understand why they’re touring together.

“Love Too Much”
In a world where showing love is a delicate balance, Hunter croons “You can never say love too much”. Hunter is definitely a “lover not a fighter” and that is displayed in his ballads. Who doesn’t love a guy that’s not afraid to show his sensitive side!
