Produced by Martin Johnson (Avril Lavigne, Gavin Degraw), "HUMAN" heralds Perri's eagerly awaited new album slated for release in Spring '14. The as-yet-untitled album -- which follows the acclaimed singer/songwriter's breakthrough 2011 debut, "lovestrong." -- was recorded over the past year, with further production from Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran, One Direction), John Hill (P!nk, Mayer Hawthorne, Santigold), and Butch Walker (Taylor Swift, Fall Out Boy, Panic! At The Disco). The album was mixed by GRAMMY® Award-winning engineer Manny Marroquin (Kanye West, John Legend, Alicia Keys).
Perri will introduce her fans to "HUMAN" with a special release day live performance today on the nationally syndicated Queen Latifah Show, (check local listings).
Named as iTunes' "Breakthrough Pop Artist of 2011," Perri earned critical applause and an increasingly fervent fan following with her extraordinary debut, "lovestrong." Highlighted by the 3x-platinum certified smash, "Jar of Hearts," the album -- produced by Grammy-winning producer Joe Chiccarelli (White Stripes, My Morning Jacket) -- entered the SoundScan/Billboard 200 among the top 5 upon initial release, while also proving an unqualified international sensation with top 5 success in Australia and Ireland as well as top 10 sales in Canada and the United Kingdom.
Perri followed "lovestrong." with the RIAA 4x-platinum certified hit single, "A Thousand Years," exclusively featured on Summit Entertainment/Chop Shop/Atlantic's "THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN -- PART 1 & 2 -- ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACKS." The track was a multi-format radio favorite, with top 10 airplay at Hot AC and top 25 spins at CHR/Top 40 outlets nationwide.
