X Factor USA Alex & Sierra winners to release debut CD
Leading up to the highly anticipated debut album from The X Factor U.S.A. winners, Alex & Sierra, It’s About Us is now streaming in its entirety exclusively on VEVO.com. Pre-ordering fans have gotten a taste of the album so far through the powerful debut single “Scarecrow” and the bi-weekly instant downloads which include “Just Kids,” “Here We Go,” “Bumper Cars” and “Little Do You Know.” The album is available for pre-order now and officially hits stores on 6 October. Alex Kinsey and Sierra Deaton met on the beach in Florida when they were in high school, not realizing at the time that it was the fortuitous beginning of a musical journey. After auditioning with their sultry cover of Britney Spears’ “Toxic,” Alex & Sierra went on to become the first and only group to win the X Factor USA. The duo’s massive success on the show is highlighted by their stunning performances of “Say Something” and “Gravity,” which both immediately hit #1 on iTunes. Cited as one of the most highly anticipated debuts of 2014, the central Florida natives sold more than a million units of their X Factor repertoire, garnering over 2 million online fans and 85 million overall YouTube views during their ascent as one of the most buzzed-about pop duos in years. The duo’s debut single, “Scarecrow,” a rollicking folk pop stomper that perfectly melds the singers’ voices, was co-written by Alex & Sierra, along with Martin Johnson (Boys Like Girls) and Sam Hollander. “Scarecrow” is now available on iTunes.
