Aloe Blacc To Release Major-Label Debut EP, Wake Me Up, On September 24th

 
 
EP FEATURES ACOUSTIC VERSION OF NO. 1 HIT “WAKE ME UP” BY AVICII WITH VOCALS BY BLACC, PLUS SONGS FROM SOULFUL SINGER-SONGWRITER’S UPCOMING ALBUM LIFT YOUR SPIRIT


SANTA MONICA, Calif., Sept. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Soul singer and songwriter Aloe Blacc — who co-wrote and provided vocals for Avicii’s international hit single “Wake Me Up” — will release an EP, also entitled Wake Me Up, on September 24th, the same day he performs at the iTunes Festival in London. The EP, featuring four tracks, will be Blacc’s first major-label debut via XIX Recordings/Interscope Records.

Released in June, the gold-certified “Wake Me Up!” hit No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Songs and Dance/Electronic Songs charts, as well as in 63 countries around the world, including the U.K., where it became the fastest-selling single of 2013. It is the latest international hit that Blacc has been involved with, building on 2010’s “I Need A Dollar,” from previous album Good Things, which went on to sell over two million copies worldwide.

Born in Southern California to Panamanian parents, Blacc released his first hip-hop mixtape in 1996 and was associated with the indie hip-hop scene for many years thanks to his rap duo Emanon (alongside DJ Exile) and touring with the collective Lootpack before going solo. In 2006, he signed to Stones Throw Records and released his genre-bending debut solo album Shine Through, followed by 2010’s Good Things, concocting a vintage yet current sound. Good Things has sold more than a million units globally and has been certified gold in France, Germany, and the U.K. In 2012, Blacc was nominated for two BRIT Awards.

The track-listing for the Wake Me Up EP is as follows:

“Wake Me Up (Acoustic)”
“Love Is the Answer”
“Can You Do This”
“Ticking Bomb”
