Haley Reinhart — the 21-year-old Illinois native who won over American Idol viewers with her unique, standout performances and jazzy vocal style as a Season 10 finalist — has a busy couple of months ahead of her. The smoky-voiced and sexy singer will release her debut single, "Free," digitally on March 20. The piano-driven track, which Haley describes as "an empowering break-up song," is the lead-off single from Haley's eagerly awaited debut album, Listen Up!, which will be released by 19 Recordings/Interscope Records on May 22. To hear "Free," go here.
Fans who sign up at Haley's website here can pre-order the physical deluxe edition of Listen Up!, which includes a CD of the album's 14 songs, a collectible display flipbook featuring 14 vintage art postcards with commentary and a personal message to fans from Haley on each card, and a code to redeem a digital download of "Free" beginning March 20. The first 500 fans to purchase this very special item will receive copies signed by Haley.
To celebrate the release of "Free," Haley will return to American Idol to perform the song on March 22. She will also appear as herself on the CW's 90210 on the March 27 episode, performing a part of the song, so she has two TV appearances in the queue to support her new single. Nice work, Haley. Well, Haley and Haley's publicity and management team.
