October 3, 2012- At just 15 years old, Platinum-selling singer-songwriter Greyson Chance has seen places of the world most people only dream of visiting. To promote his debut album Hold On ‘Til The Night, Greyson traveled across the US, and to places around the world including London, Paris, Vancouver, Toronto, Hong Kong, Taipei, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Beijing, Manila and more. Greyson’s “Hold On ‘Til The Night – Live in Asia” tour in April 2012 helped propel Hold On ‘Til The Night to Platinum status in Indonesia and the Philippines, and to Gold status in Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. Along this journey, Greyson met thousands of loyal fans around the globe, each of whom helped inspire a brand new creative state of mind for him.
This new outlook can be witnessed in his latest release, the new single “Sunshine & City Lights”. The product of a serendipitous last minute studio session in London with songwriting duo The Nexus, this new song is a perfect reflection of Greyson’s artistry and vocal talent, free of the production that is ever-present in contemporary music. The song can be streamed now via the YouTube channel that launched his career, www.youtube.com/Greyson97.
“Sunshine & City Lights” is the first taste of the new music Greyson has been working on for nearly a year. While he continues work on a full-length album to be released in 2013, Greyson has decided to give fans a taste of what’s to come through this new single and EP. Entitled Truth Be Told part 1, the EP is slated for release in parts of this world this year. Truth Be Told part 1 is a stripped-down collection of new material that Greyson co-wrote with songwriters Toby Gad (Fergie, Beyonce), Lindy Robbins (Demi Lovato, One Direction), The Nexus (Lana Del Rey), and Michael Warren (Jennifer Lopez, Far East Movement) & STIX (Nicole Scherzinger).
Greyson has already performed the new single “Sunshine & City Lights” at concerts in the US & Canada, and as a special guest performer on the CCTV-MTV Mandarin Music Honors in August 2012. Greyson will return to Asia for Hitz.fm’s Birthday Invasion in Kuching and Kota Kinabalu on November 2nd and November 3rd respectively. He will be the first international solo artist to headline this event in the station’s history for East Malaysia.
Further details on the commercial release of “Sunshine & City Lights” and Truth Be Told part 1, including its track listing, will be released shortly.
