Drake Bell will digitally release his new EP A Reminder on June 28th. A Reminder was produced by John Fields (Jellyfish, Rooney, Jack's Mannequin, Jonas Bros) in Los Angeles; The EP's melodic/pop-driven first single, "Terrific" will be available digitally on June 14th wherever music is sold online.
Speaking on why he chose to self-release an EP at this time, Bell says, "I have so much going on right now with my acting, and a full album will probably not happen until next year. I wanted to release these four tracks for my fans. They haven't had new music for a while."
Fans will hear a more mature Bell on the EP's first track, "Terrific." "The song is really about calling someone out on not being themselves," said Bell. "People growing up and trying to fit into different scenes, getting into different things that aren't necessarily good for them or who they are. Trying to be someone that they're not, and maybe shouldn't be, and watching that happen right before your eyes," he added.
Bell can be seen as the star of this summer's Nickelodeon live-action/CG adaptation of The Fairly OddParents, "A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner!" opposite Daniella Monet (Victorious). In addition, Bell will embark on a summer music tour in Latin America from mid-July to the end of August, a select few US dates in August and his first European tour in September/October.
The full track listing for A Reminder is as follows:
2. You're Not Thinking
3. Big Shot
4. Speak My Mind
