The future of pop music has arrived as pop music’s newest prince, Simon Curtis, plans to release his sophomore album this spring. The 24 year-old singer songwriter, whose vocals give pop prince Justin Timberlake a run for his money, has learned from the best as his experimental dance pop sound echoes similar creativity and innovation as music legends Britney Spears and Lady Gaga. He even name-drops the two pop diva vocalists in his debut effort.
In 2009 Curtis got his shot at stardom in the Nickelodeon’s made-for-TV musical Spectacular!. Sony executives soon approached Curtis with a contract to catapult him onto the major music scene, but he wasn’t going to be another cookie cutter singer. It only took Curtis 13 days to write and record his debut effort 8Bit Heart. Curtis made a deal with his fans, who like to be called robots, that once he received at least 8,000 followers on twitter he would release his album for free on his website. On March 23,2010 Curtis released his debut album, which was downloaded over 80,000 times in the first week. The album received positive reviews all around from the pop music community. Stand out tracks include “Delusional,” “Super Psycho Love,” “Beat Drop,” and “Diablo.”
Today, Curtis has over 20,000 followers on Twitter, 8Bit Heart has estimated 150,000 downloads, and now Billboard.com is buzzing about his highly anticipated sophomore effort RΔ. Curtis has achieved all of this success without a record label behind him and has yet to hire a manager. However, he is shopping for a record label to release his sophomore effort later this spring. But for now Curtis has released a thrilling preview of four new tracks, “Don’t Dance,” “Enemy,” and “Pit of Vipers,” and “Laser Guns Up.” The preview doesn’t disappoint as Curtis proves he has the talent and creativity to break into mainstream music. Check out the preview below!
