This morning (December 3rd), Jesse McCartney debuted the cover art for his upcoming EP “In Technicolor Part 1“! Check it out above. The EP drops on December 10th and will feature 4 new songs including the hit single, “Back Together.” Jesse says the EP is a taste of what’s to come on his full-studio album, due out next Spring.
In his recent interview with Billboard, Jesse said that “In Technicolor Part 1″ will expand upon the sonic vibe and romantic undertones of “Back Together.” “In my mind, we’re all on this planet for one reason, and that’s to find somebody to share your life with, that sees you for what you’re worth,” he says. “I feel like that’s what colors your world, and everything else is black and white. When ‘In Technicolor’ was written, it sounded like a really strong title that would set up the rest of the songs on the album, which really deal with the ins and outs of my relationships with women.”

On October 4th, Jesse McCartney paid a visit to the SiriusXM Hits 1 studios to co-host HitBound and perform his latest single “Back Together” with Hot Chelle Rae members Nash Overstreet and Ryan Follesé, co-writers of the song. Jesse and the Hot Chelle Rae band mates also shared their zombie apocalypse survival plans, should the need arise to protect themselves from hordes of zombies.
Nash plans to go solo, rather than in a group, with a flamethrower as his weapon of choice. Ryan’s logical plan consists of “rolling with Jay-Z cause he has a jet” and living on an island because zombies apparently can’t swim. Finally, Jesse says he would roll in a group with a lasso as his weapon of choice and settle on top of a mountain before proceeding to eat the rest of the group (including Nash and Ryan!). Watch the amusing clip below!

Interview with Alfombra Roja
On November 24th in Los Angeles, CA, Jesse McCartney attended the 2013 American Music Awards looking very dapper dressed head to toe in Lanvin, and reunited with his 2008 tour-mate Jordin Sparks on the Coke Red Carpet. Before walking the red carpet, Jesse hit the Samsung Galaxy Stage to perform his latest single “Back Together” acoustically for the pre-show, hosted by Lance Bass, Rosie Pierri, Jordin Sparks and Jenna Ushkowitz.
After performing, Jesse stopped to talk with Chelsea Cannell and Jonathan Cheban about what he was wearing, his upcoming EP “In Technicolor Part 1″, why he decided to choose “Back Together” as the first single, and what inspired him to go in a different direction with his music compared to his previous releases. Jesse explained “Back Together” is a preview of what’s to come on his EP and full album. He then went on to describe “In Technicolor Part 1″ as having a pop-disco, late 70s-early 80s vibe and reflective of what he grew up listening to. Check out the interview and photos below!
“In Technicolor Part 1″ hits iTunes wordlwide on Tuesday, December 10th. A full album is due out in the Spring of 2014.
