The meet-and-greet prior to Cody Simpson’s concert at Concord Music Hall Sept. 25 is soldout, but there’s another way to meet the Australian teen idol in Chicago before then.
Simpson is scheduled to perform Wednesday at Macy’s on State Street on behalf of Ralph Lauren’s Denim and Supply brand. Afterward, he’ll take part in a meet-and-greet with fans. Customers who spend at least $75 on Denim and Supply products that day will get front-of-line access. How many people will show up? It’s tough to say, but keep in mind Simpson will likely promote the appearance on Twitter, where he has 7.5 million followers.
In June, Simpson released his third studio album, “Free,” which is his first album as an independent artist.
When: 5:30-7:30 p.m. Wednesday Where: Macy’s; 111 North State Street Admission: Free, but Denim and Supply purchase of at least $75 ensures front-of-line access.
Cody Simpson got signed to a record deal on his 13th birthday. Since then, the Australian music star has been on the up and up, touring with Justin Bieber, collaborating with Ziggy Marley and amassing nearly 7.4 million Twitter followers. Not to mention the media spotlight Simpson’s experienced thanks to his relationship with “it” model Gigi Hadid, who accompanied him during his recent visit to CBS News.
“I was naive and impressionable at that age, as we all are that age,” he said about landing a record deal at 13. “Fortunately enough [I’ve] had five years of this experience, just growing up in those years that you’re a sponge and just learning so much along that way. And now being at a point where I have the courage and the knowledge to say, ‘Thank you. I need to do it this way now.'”
Simpson is doing music his way these days. He abandoned his record label and is about releases his first indie album on his own label, Coast House Records/Banana Beat Records.
Called “Free,” the set — due out June 23 — features 14 tracks, including collaborations with Hawaii-based singer-songwriter Donavon Frankenreiter and G. Love, frontman of G. Love & Special Sauce. He also linked up with John Mayer for some advice, and had his pal Miley Cyrus create the artwork for the single, “Flower.” Simpson said all the collaborations happened so naturally — nothing was forced.
Now Simpson is ready to share who he really is with people, and he says it’s the right time to do so.
“I’m only 18 years old, but that age is sort of in line with independence and coming up on adulthood and a certain freedom…And turning 18 happened at the same time that I decided to leave my major record label deal,” said Simpson. “Fortunately I’ve been able to do that…go an independent route and find an entire new level of creative freedom that I didn’t think I could have.”
In March, Simpson debuted some of the new material at South by Southwest and has been performing smaller gigs around the country.
“It takes a lot of time. I’m not expecting to be selling out Madison Square [Garden] with my band tomorrow,” he said.
Still, so far he’s enjoying this new phase of his career, from playing 21-and-older-only gigs for a new set of fans and getting to work on the type of music he wants to play — without having to fit in a specific genre.
“I’m grateful that I sort of have a little bit of a fresh start. It’s an easier process for me now, because I never really grabbed too hard onto the child pop star thing,” he said.
And through it all, Simpson says his passion for music has grown.
“Every day I love it more,” he said. “It never started as like ‘this is exactly what I want to do. You never know when you’re that young. But now I have a clear vision, a clear head.”
Cody recently opened up about hanging out with girlfriend Gigi Hadid on his tour bus.
“[It’s] cozy, confined; if you have a fight, there are not much places to go…[you] go to your bunk bed,” Cody recently told Cosmo. “Yeah, so you can’t really get away from each other — but usually we never like to get away from each other too often. Therefore being on the tour bus is quite fun. You get to experience the world, see a lot of new places every day, you wake up in a new city every morning and try to find a breakfast place before sound check, and it’s usually a cool experience.”
Cody Simpson’s new song, “Thotful,” will take you the beach. With a Jack Johnson vibe that might transport you to Hawaii, a reggae tone that will deliver to the Caribbean, and Cody’s native Australian sun-soaked vocals, no matter where you are, you’ll be dreaming of the coast.
The 18-year-old singer brushes out an easy melody on his acoustic guitar — bongos, snare hits and a bubbly bassline put his strumming in good sonic company. He sings of a girl who’s captivated his heart — and everyone else’s hearts too.
The song’s title, “Thotful,” is a play on words, I presume. “Thot” is derogatory slang for a promiscuous lady. His lyrics tell the story of a woman who thinks about playing everyone, but doesn’t give him the time of day.
“She’ll be nice to everyone she meets, then she’ll cut them ’til they bleed,” he sings breezily. “She’s so thotful, but she don’t ever think about me.”
The song will appear on Simpson’s Free, and follows tracks like “Flower” and “New Problems.”
