Her first full-length record in more than a decade
The wait is finally over as singer/songwriter Ashley Tisdale has revealed that she will release her highly-anticipated third studio album Symptoms on May 3rd via Big Noise Music Group. Symptoms – co-written entirely by Tisdale – will be available for pre-order on April 12th and marks Tisdale’s first full-length record in a decade.
“Symptoms is a very personal record. From beginning to end it’s a complete journey of what I experienced,” Tisdale says of the album. “Every song title is a symptom I struggled with when facing my anxiety and depression. I’m not scared of these feelings like I used to be, I’m proud of it and I have this album to celebrate my growth.”
The album’s lead single “Voices In My Head” was released in November 2018 and hit the top 10 on the iTunes US Pop Chart. The song has been streamed more than 2.5 million times on Spotify and its music video has already amassed nearly two million views.
Billboard cited Tisdale’s “softer, more mature approach” to the song, “blending her signature pop roots with a more grown-up, layered sound” while PAPER notes that the song “carries an almost quite grace” and hails its relatability: “Tisdale sings with serene acceptance about the voices as lies to you and me, making her experience universal. It’s the calm therapy session we all need right now.”
Tisdale has called Symptoms the most authentic project of her career and kicked off 2019 with another glimpse into the record with the release of “Love Me & Let Me Go” in January. Idolator described the song as an “electro-kissed anthem boasting a gorgeous drop and a fiercely empowering chorus” while MTV hailed the song as a “much-welcome comeback from the singer/songwriter, who’s giving fans a vulnerable side of herself they’ve never seen before.” The track’s music video has 1.1 million views and counting.
Last week, Netflix announced Tisdale’s casting in their upcoming holiday-themed multi-camera comedy series Merry Happy Whatever starring and executive produced by Dennis Quaid. Across her social media platforms, Tisdale boasts a following of more than 44 million.
