ANDERSON EAST’S NEW ALBUM ENCORE OUT JANUARY 12
SET TO PERFORM SINGLE ALL ON MY MIND ON ELLEN TELEVISED IN AUS THIS MONDAY
Encore, the highly anticipated new album from acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Anderson East, will be released January 12 and is now available for pre-order.
Already receiving widespread notice, East will perform the album’s first single, All On My Mind, on The Ellen DeGeneres Show airing this Monday, October 16 on Channel 9. The single – which East debuted earlier this year on Jimmy Kimmel Live!— is currently Top 10 in the US and climbing. In Australia the single has been added to Spotify’s The Office Stereo and Apple Music’s The A List: Rock.
Encore was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb and recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio along with additional production at House of Blues and Farmland Studio. The album features eleven songs, includingAll On My Mind (written by Ed Sheeran, Johnny McDaid, East and Aaron Raitiere), King For A Day (written by East, Chris Stapleton and Morgane Stapleton), Girlfriend (written by East, Cobb, Raitiere and Tim Bergling) as well as renditions of songs by Ted Hawkins and Willie Nelson.
The release of Encore culminates a breakout series of years for East following his widely praised debut album, Delilah, which NPR Music called “an eclectic, fully formed debut…” Additional critical praise included The Wall Street Journalwho described, “…highlighted by Mr. East’s raw and raspy vocals and a backing band that channels the urgent rhythms and gospel-flavored sounds of ‘60s R&B and Southern soul music,” while American Songwriter asserted, “New artist debuts don’t come with much more industry buzz than the first release from singer/songwriter Anderson East…For better or worse, that sets expectations higher than those of most new artists. Thankfully, East meets them in 10 tracks and 33 minutes.”
