Jesse McCartney Preps ‘In Technicolor Part 1’ EP, Full Release To Follow In Spring

Remember this summer when Jesse McCartney came out of nowhere with the unexpectedly great, smooth R&B single “Back Together”? No? Shame on you! Listen to it now.

Now that thats out of the way, it’s worth discussing that J-Mac is prepping his first new release in several years: On December 10, the crooner will release his In Technicolor Part 1 EP, a collection of four songs (including “Back Together”), with his fifth full-length album, a “70s disco-pop record,” to follow in the spring.

As McCartney explained to Billboard: “I’ve been busy, but I’m finally ready to release some new music. More than anything, [the EP] is just a preview of what the full-length is going to be next year. I want to put something out for the fans — they’ve been more than patient. And I wanted to give them a taste of [new music], because the style of the new album is so different from the previous album.”

It will be his first release since parting ways with Hollywood Records and founding his own label, Eight0Eight Records.

Ah, yes — now let’s listen to “Back Together” again.
