It has been quite a year for Christina Perri since the release of her acclaimed second album “Head Or Heart.” In addition to high profile TV appearances, performances and live events, Perri has been on her biggest worldwide headline tour to date including sold out shows in North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America. Christina also did a string of dates with OneRepublic as special guest on last summer’s “Native Summer Tour” and joined forces with Demi Lovato for a run of dates on the North American leg of her blockbuster fall tour.
“Human,” the acclaimed first single from “Head Or Heart,” was certified RIAA platinum for sales now well in excess of 1 million. Hailed by Billboard as a “delicate alt-pop ballad that should delight supporters of (Perri’s) breakthrough single ‘Jar of Hearts,’” the track proved another colossal hit for Perri, lighting up the Top 10 at multi-format radio outlets nationwide, while also ascending to Top 10 status on the iTunes Store. In addition, the “Human” companion video – directed by Elliott Sellers (Jason Mraz, Young The Giant, Portugal. The Man) –was an online phenomenon, drawing more than 58 million views and counting at Perri’s official YouTube channel.
Additionally, the album features the singles “Burning Gold” and “The Words” not to mention the upbeat fan favorite, “Be My Forever,” the duet that Christina did with Ed Sheeran.
