Grammy Award winning and platinum selling recording artists Pentatonix are set to release their debut studio album on Friday, October 16th via RCA Records. The self-titled album will feature new original material from the group. Additionally the first single, “Can’t Sleep Love” will be available on September 4th.
Last Friday, Pentatonix released the music video for their cover of OMI’s “Cheerleader”. The video has already received over four million views. The group has been performing the track this summer on their tour with Kelly Clarkson.
After wrapping their sold out On My Way Home World Tour, the group continued their whirlwind year with the release of their first ever documentary, On My Way Home. The concert film follows the quintet throughout their sold out 2015 North American tour featuring behind-the-scenes footage, live performances and the making of their debut album.
Since bursting onto the scene in 2011, Grammy Award-winners and platinum selling recording artists Pentatonix have sold more than two million albums in the U.S. alone and has amassed over one billion views on their YouTube channel with nearly nine million subscribers. Most recently, the group received two gold certifications for “Daft Punk” and cover of Imagine Dragons’ “Radioactive” ft. Lindsey Stirling. Their latest holiday album – That’s Christmas To Me – sold more than 1.2 million copies in the U. S., becoming one of only four acts to release a platinum album in 2014. In February 2015, the group received their first GRAMMY Award for Best Arrangement, Instrumental and A Cappella for their “Daft Punk” medley. Earlier this summer, Pentatonix made their film debut in Universal Pictures’ Pitch Perfect 2.
