Cody Simpson seems pretty bitter and is already turning his back on both Hollywood and pop. “Free” is distinctly more rock-influenced than the young Australian singer’s previous two albums and has an indie, singer-songwriter feel. Cody’s own independent label, Coast House Records, produced the album, so it also marks a departure from the singer’s previous mass-market label, Atlantic.
While the album officially ships on July 10th, people can listen to a preview of all the tracks on MTVFirst/VH-1First at this link.
Will fans of Cody’s previous music like his new, more serious sound? We’re really not sure.
What do you think about the new direction of Cody’s music?
