Darren Criss is Releasing a New EP (And It’s Gonna Be Totally Awesome)

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Mville chapter.

Everyone has their childhood crushes. Some loved Justin Bieber. Some loved the Jonas Brothers. Zac Efron. The list goes on. I had those crushes. But… I never had one like Darren Criss.

Darren Criss is most known for his role as Blaine Anderson on Glee, but I discovered him in a 360p YouTube video of A Very Potter Musical, playing Harry Potter. From that point on, I was obsessed to say the least.

Through the years, I’ve always followed and supported Darren. I’ve gotten the chance to see him live, and meet him this past October.

He announced on November 28th 2017 that he’s releasing a new EP entitled Homework. He hasn’t released an EP since 2010! Of course, we’ve had distractions such as Glee, or his band Computer Games with his brother Chuck and their EP, Lost Boys Life.

But, Homework, is going to be fantastic. With five new Darren songs… My heart can not simply contain itself!

Darren will also be starring in American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace as Andrew Cunanan, the man who killed Gianni Versace. The show premieres Wednesday, January 17th 2018 at 10pm on FX.

Check out the first song he’s released from the EP below:
