(U.S) Following the staggering success of her inspiring hit anthem “Try”, Grammy Award-winning and multiplatinum selling singer-songwriter Colbie Caillat has set September 30 as the release date for her anxiously awaited fourth full-length studio album, Gypsy Heart [Republic Records]. A digital pre-order for the record will become live on September 2 on iTunes and all online partners.
For the album, Colbie worked with Grammy award winning and legendary producer Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, in-demand songwriter David Hodges, and longtime friend Jason Reeves. Songs like “Land Called Far Away” pair her distinct delivery with breezy acoustic guitars and a distinctly organic energy. Meanwhile, “Floodgates” begins with shimmering keys and propulsive handclaps as she carries a soaring hook. “Never Getting Over You” builds into a powerful refrain after a subtle verse.

Its incredible impact generated immense passion from media and tastemakers as well. She recently performed the song on The View and at the Young Hollywood Awards in addition to appearing on HLN, CBS This Morning, Extra, and more.
