Katharine McPhee Unveils The Cover And Tracklist Of Comeback Album ‘Hysteria’

After a five year break, Katharine McPhee returned to the pop scene in May with sexy single “Lick My Lips.” The retro-flavored, Luther Vandross-sampling bop found the 31-year-old in an unusually irreverent and experimental mood, which bodes well for comeback LP Hysteria. It’s great to see the Smash star switching it up after being boxed into an adult contemporary sound on her first two albums.

Kat unveiled the tracklist of her new opus today (August 6) and there are a couple of surprises. The singer/actress has already spoken about working with Ryan Tedder and Sia, and their names dutifully appear in the credits (“Stranger Than Fiction” and “Round Your Little Finger,” respectively). However, she also wrote with indie-pop princess Sophia Black (“Appetite”), singer/songwriter Wrabel (“Break”) and “Beautiful Now” vocalist Jon Bellion (“Damage Control”). It all sounds very promising. The album drops September 18.
