Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 03, 2012
Tyler Hilton released his much anticipated third studio album, FORGET THE STORM, today through his own label, Hooptie Tune Records. Recorded in Los Angeles, with producers such as David Hodges (Christina Perry, Kelly Clarkson), the album will mark Hilton’s first independent release. The first single, hook driven ballad “Prince of Nothing Charming,” is available now on iTunes. Hilton rejoined the cast of CW’s One Tree Hill in its 9th and final season; the FORGET THE STORM track “Loaded Gun” appeared in the season premiere; the two-hour series finale will air tomorrow night, April 4th. Hilton is currently out on a U.S. tour with Dion Roy, which will conclude in May (full routing below). The full album is streaming this week only on AOL Music.
"The songs and sounds of FORGET THE STORM came together as a reaction to the major label system and the heartbreak it kept putting me through,” said Hilton. “I left it all behind, started my own label and without all the rules and red tape I found it easier to write honest Americana Rock’n’Roll that is closer to who I am.”
