Johnny Orlando’s Debut EP

Johnny Orlando Announces Debut EP, TEENAGE FEVER, Plots Headlining North American Tour &

Drops Dreamy New Single “SLEEP”

Singer-songwriter and fan favorite Johnny Orlando shows no sign of slowing down. Set to share his first solid musical statement in the form of his debut EP, Teenage Fever, out March 15, followed by a headlining North American tour this spring, the recent JUNO-Award nominee for Breakthrough Artist of the Year also drops his dreamy new single, Sleep today.

Tickets for the Teenage Fever Tour are on sale February 18 at johnnyorlandomusic.com. To pre-order Teenage Fever, click here. See full track listing below.

Sleep”, co-written by Orlando, his sister Darian and Swedish collaborators Linnea Södahl (Zara Larsson, Anne-Marie) and Hampus Lindvall (Zara Larsson), is the second single from Johnny’s upcoming debut EP. The pop Swedish-influenced song about living in the moment and not wanting that moment to end showcases Johnny’s maturing sound and songwriting skills.

“We wrote ‘Sleep’ for anyone who’s ever experienced that feeling of never wanting to be apart from someone who you love to spend time with. I felt that it was a very real and relatable thing that people experience at some point in their adolescence,” said Johnny. “Linnea first came up with the concept for ‘Sleep’ – it’s almost like there’s a word for it in Swedish, or it’s a common feeling, that we don’t really think about in English, and that’s why I think it’s so unique.”

Out March 15, Teenage Fever marks Orlando’s biggest release since signing with Universal Music Canada and Island Records. Emanating confidence and charisma over danceable electronic grooves and a subtle hip-hop bounce, Orlando levels up his take on pop. The EP highlights his ever-evolving songwriting skills as he co-writes all six tracks with his sister, Darian Orlando, and a range of acclaimed collaborators including Mike Wise (bülow, Dvbbs, RALPH), Linnea Södahl (Zara Larsson, Anne-Marie), Nick Ruth (Ryan Tedder), Jordon Manswell (Daniel Caesar) and Matthew Burnett (Jessie Reyez, Daniel Caesar). The EP also features previously released single, “Last Summer” which sits at over 17.3 million global streams (and growing) across all platforms.

“I’m very excited and so grateful that I have this opportunity to share my debut EP,” added Johnny. “‘Teenage Fever’, represents those experiences and feelings all teenagers have while trying to navigate their high school years. It tells the story of my journey, and I hope it will give people a more personal insight into my life and experiences. We spent about a year making this project and it means so much to me. I worked with so many cool people with different backgrounds and from different places, which gives it a lot of character and makes every song unique. I’m so happy to share new music with fans and hope they love it as much as I do – I can’t wait to see the reaction live on tour!”

The new music also follows the launch of Angel’s More of HER playlist which featured tracks such as Hi Grade ft Protoje, Road Closed, Crud and No Days Off and his HER EP which featured rapidly rising UK rapper Steff London on the track Hop On and Atlanta, Georgia’s Rich Homie Quan on the Harmony Samuels produced Fvxk With You which made a huge splash across both sides of the Atlantic.
Signed in the US by Motown records VP, Ezekiel Lewis (also responsible for forming the group The Clutch who have gone on to write and produce hits for Beyonce, Justin Bieber, Neyo and more), alongside Island Records, Angel continues to reinforce his position as one of the UK’s hottest R&B talents. With Kehlani, Mila J, Pop and Oak (known for their work with the likes of Chris Brown, Kehlani and Nicki Minaj), Grammy award winning producer Swiss Beatz, Neff U and Prince Charlez (who recently collaborated with Rihanna’s Anti) on the list as just some of the credible names Angel has recently worked with and with his much-awaited new album WOMAN and live shows coming, there is no doubt that Angel’s new music is going to rock both sides of the shores, making 2018 and beyond his for the taking.

About OLIVIA O’BRIEN:

Raised in Napa Valley, Olivia O’Brien has been singing and writing songs since she was seven years old, and taught herself to play both the guitar and piano. She began posting her originals on SoundCloud for fun, not thinking anything would come of it, until gnash reached out on Twitter last year after she posted a cover of one of his songs. When he asked her if she had any original material, Olivia sent him a voice-note of the beginnings of “i hate u i love u” and he invited her down to L.A. to record. “i hate u, i love u” is a global phenom since 2015. It became a Top 5 hit in the U.S. where it is certified RIAA triple-platinum, #1 in Australia (double-platinum), Top 10 UK (platinum), and Top 5 on iTunes in more than 50 markets.
