GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum powerhouse trio and arguably the definitive pop group of the 21st century— Jonas Brothers —announced their highly anticipated return to music. Marking the band’s first original release in nearly six years, and debut under their new partnership with Republic Records, their highly anticipated comeback single “Sucker” will be available Friday, March 1st worldwide at 12AM ET on all platforms.
Two weeks ahead of its release, singer/songwriter and actress Sabrina Carpenter has revealed additional details surrounding her third studio album Singular: Act I, due out November 9 on Hollywood Records, including the record’s artwork and track listing. Singular: Act I is available now for digital pre-order and pre-save (HERE) and will include an instant download of the song “Paris.” The album will be available on CD exclusively at Target.
Carpenter first revealed the album’s release date during a dramatic performance of the record’s lead single “Almost Love” on The Late Late Show with James Corden earlier this month. The theatrical performance began as a stark affair, with Carpenter clad in all-white among Roman columns and statues. By the end of the song, the set was splattered with neon paint from disembodied hands – its final mark provided by Carpenter herself as she scrawled “November 9” on the walls.
To celebrate the release of Singular: Act I, Sabrina will perform the album’s second single, “Sue Me” on Live with Kelly and Ryan and the TODAY Show on November 9.
Carpenter is on the edge of a new beginning with this album, which has been more than two years in the making for the rising pop powerhouse. This marks her third record in a three-year span since her debut album, and she has grown considerably as an artist and writer between each release – something that especially shines through on Singular: Act I.
“I’m beginning in a different place than I was before,” says Carpenter of the record. Carpenter approached Singular: Act I a little bit older and a little bit wiser than she was when she began writing songs for her first album. She opted to push herself out of her comfort zone in order to be heard, flaunting the confidence of someone who has entered young adulthood and found their own voice. That sense of empowerment is weaved throughout Singular: Act I – a set of eight sonic epiphanies (all of which she co-wrote) blending Carpenter’s R&B-style vocals with the pop sensibility she helmed on her sophomore record EVOLution.
Singular: Act I Track Listing:
1. Almost Love
3. Hold Tight (feat. Uhmeer)
4. Sue Me
6. Bad Time
7. Mona Lisa
8. Diamonds Are Forever

About LETTERS LIVE
LETTERS LIVE first took place in December 2013 at the Tabernacle in London and quickly established itself as a powerful and dynamic event format that attracted outstanding talents to performing remarkable letters in front of a live audience.
Inspired by Shaun Usher’s international best-selling Letters of Note series and Simon Garfield’s To the Letter, LETTERS LIVE is a live celebration of the enduring power of literary correspondence. Each show always features a completely different array of great performers, reading remarkable letters written over the centuries and from around the world. One of the joys of Letters Live is that one never knows who is going to take to the stage or what letter they are going to bring alive.
The independent publishing house Canongate, who created and developed LETTERS LIVE, subsequently partnered with the film and television production company SunnyMarch to build Letters Live into an even more far-reaching and ambitious project. Their shared vision is to harness the power of letters through curated events of exceptional quality and to develop a multi-media platform that delivers the most memorable letters to people all around the world.
As well as celebrating the pain, joy, wisdom and humour expressed in letters, LETTERS LIVE has from the outset been committed to promoting literacy and to fund-raising for literacy charities. This remains an important part of its activities both in the UK and abroad.
