With yesterday’s release of Owl City’s All Things Bright And Beautiful and Eminem and Royce Da 5′9″’s Hell: The Sequel, summer album season is officially upon us. And today brings the album cover for Greyson Chance’s forthcoming debut LP Hold On ‘Til The Night (out August 2), which features the Ellen DeGeneres-signed tween sitting on the same word-covered piano featured in his “Waiting Outside The Lines” video.
A press release notes that recent White House Easter Egg Roll performer Greyson wrote “the majority” of the songs on Hold On ‘Til The Night over the past year in Los Angeles, and worked with such songwriter-producers as The Matrix (Hilary Duff’s “So Yesterday”, Avril Lavigne’s “Complicated”), Billy Steinberg (JoJo’s “Too Little, Too Late,” Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors”) and Ron Fair (Christina Aguilera’s “Come On Over Baby,” Lady Gaga’s “Speechless”).
In addition to “Waiting Outside The Lines” and “Unfriend You,” new tracks confirmed for the Chance’s debut LP include “Purple Sky,” “Hold on ‘Til the Night,” “Heart Like Stone,” “Summertrain” and “Take a Look at Me Now.”
