Walt Disney Records' AUSTIN & ALLY: TURN IT UP Out Today, Feat. Ross Lynch and Laura Marano
With the holidays coming, "Austin & Ally" fans have something tuneful to be thankful for. Walt Disney Records is set to release Austin & Ally: Turn It Up, a new collection of songs heard on the hit Disney Channel series. Featuring 12 tracks performed by series' stars Ross Lynch and Laura Marano, plus a bonus track from sisters Chloe and Halle Bailey (Season Five winners of Radio Disney's "Next Big Thing"), the album arrives at stores and online retailers today, Dec. 17, 2013.
Now in the midst of Season Three, "Austin & Ally" continues to dominate the Disney Channel airwaves, ranking as year to date, the #1 series among Kids ages 6-14. The series follows the adventures of budding pop star Austin Moon (Ross Lynch), songwriter and Austin's secret weapon Ally Dawson (Laura Marano), along with their two best friends, as they pursue their dreams of stardom and success.
Featuring one of the most talented casts on TV, "Austin & Ally" highlights music in each episode. Last year, Walt Disney Records' debut collection of songs from the show hit #1 on iTunes Top Soundtracks chart, while the video for "Heard it on the Radio" posted nearly 16 million views on VEVO. That album featured lead vocals by Ross alone. Now Laura joins the Party On "Austin & Ally: Turn It Up," which is akin to a musical conversation between the stars.
Songs included on the new album are:
"Upside Down" - This instant pop classic captures that crazy feeling of love at the moment of inception, as well highlightingRoss's maturing vocal skills.
"Me & You" -Laura eases into the comfort zone of a perfect relationship in this joyously upbeat track.
"Who U R" Ross comes back on this harder rocking song about revealing the truth behind the surface. As he sings, "Don't be scared to show me something real."
"Superhero" On this up-tempo rocker, Ross shows that you don't need a cape and a mask to play the hero for that special someone.
"Parachute" This heartrending ballad shows off Laura's emotionally rich vocals, as she sings about finding someone who will never let you fall.
"What We're About" Ross belts out this super-upbeat celebration of life, in which coming in first isn't as important as just being in the race.
