(PCM) Platinum-selling, 14-year-old vocal sensation Jackie Evancho is gearing up for the release of her third studio album “Awakening” set to drop on September 23rd. The album release will also coincide with her international world tour.
“Awakening” was produced by Nick Patrick and is Evancho’s first under her recent worldwide recording agreement with Sony Music Masterworks imprint Portrait. The new album features some new directions for Evancho! Without foregoing the beautiful and lush classical-crossover compositions for which Evancho has become famous, she also extends her stylistic reach with contemporary material on songs such as the haunting folk song “The Rains of Castamere” from HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones.
She also takes a bigger step forward on her version of U2’s “With or Without You.” Moreover, Evancho sings several original songs including the anthem “Take Me There” and “Open Fields of Grace.” She also tackles the ethereal ballad “Memories” by the Dutch band, Within Temptation, in addition to the popular classic “Think of Me” from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera.
You can also catch Evacho making several TV appearances leading up to the album release. She will be visiting The Today Show on September 22nd, Queen Latifah on October 2nd, and a PBS special will air this December.
Evancho has revealed details about her upcoming album, as well as, some things that she enjoys doing her spare time in a series of exclusive interview clips that are premiering as part of a lifestyle series that lead up to the release of “Awakening” on September 23rd.
PCM is pleased to share two exclusive interview clips where Evancho reveals her love for archery (and The Walking Dead’s Daryl Dixon) and also explains some of the details that go into prepping for a big show!
