Austin and Ally Turn It Up!!
With the holidays coming, “Austin & Ally” fans have something tuneful to be thankful for. Walt Disney Records is set to release Austin & Ally: Turn It Up, a new collection of songs heard on the hit Disney Channel series. Featuring 12 tracks performed by series’ stars Ross Lynch and Laura Marano, plus a bonus track from sisters Chloe and Halle Bailey (Season Five winners of Radio Disney’s “Next Big Thing”), the album arrives at stores and online retailers Dec. 17, 2013.
Now in the midst of Season Three, “Austin & Ally” continues to dominate the Disney Channel airwaves, ranking as year to date, the #1 series among Kids ages 6-14. The series follows the adventures of budding pop star Austin Moon (Ross Lynch), songwriter and Austin’s secret weapon Ally Dawson (Laura Marano), along with their two best friends, as they pursue their dreams of stardom and success.
Featuring one of the most talented casts on TV, “Austin & Ally” highlights music in each episode. Last year, Walt Disney Records’ debut collection of songs from the show hit #1 on iTunes Top Soundtracks chart, while the video for “Heard it on the Radio” posted nearly 16 million views on VEVO. That album featured lead vocals by Ross alone. Now Laura joins the party on “Austin & Ally: Turn It Up,” which is akin to a musical conversation between the stars.
Songs included on the new album are:
“Upside Down” – A pop classic for the ages Ross sings of the feelings of love and the rollercoasters of feelings.
“Me & You” – Laura sings a pretty tune about a perfect relationship.
“Who U R” – Ross turns it up in this rock track about showing who you are and not being scared to do so.
“Superhero” – Ross brings the heat in this track about how capes and spandex doesn’t make a true superhero, someone willing to fight does.
“Parachute” – This ballad shows off Laura’s stunning vocals as she sings of that person who will never let you slip and fall through the cracks.
“What We’re About” – Ross celebrates life in this track all about what we’re about!
“Chasin’ the Beat of My Heart” – A track with an old beat and a rhythm to match about chasing that one person you love sung by Ross.
“Stuck on You” – An acoustic mellow track about that person you can’t forget sung by Ross.
“Redial” – In this track Laura sings of that one friend you know will never let you down, no matter how many times you call them.
“Steal Your Heart” – Ross brings the beat up in this sweet song about getting someone to open up their heart.
“Better Than This” – The acclaimed production team Rock Mafia wrote and produced this neo-disco track for Ross, who totally owns it as an anthem to living for this moment.
“I Think About You” – Ross Lynch rocks this ballad and sings of an unforgettable summer romance.
“Unstoppable” – This bonus track from sisters Chloe and Halle Bailey provides the perfect message on which to end the album: if we accept each other for who we are, then we are unstoppable.
