Nashville’s fertile music scene has a lot more going for it than just country. Ask Cherub. The duo, comprising Jordan Kelley and Jason Huber, combine a solid live show with a knack for dancefloor-friendly pop tunes. They've got the attention of big-league festival bookers, and they've earned major label support.
After signing to Columbia Records and releasing the four-track “Antipasto” EP in December 2013, Cherub will make its major label album debut with "Year of the Caprese," due May 27.
Cherub's album has already yielded the sleeper hit in “Doses & Mimosas,” which has accumulated more than 2.5 million hits on YouTube.
Billboard has an exclusive premiere of another track from the album, "Freaky Me, Freaky You." Check it out:
"'Freaky Me, Freaky You' is our furthest step into a new sound that we have started experimenting with over the past couple of records," said Huber.
Cherub is currently on the road for the U.S. leg of its Blow’d Tour. In early May, the pair cross the Atlantic for a string of concerts across the U.K. and Europe, then return for shows in North America. The summer 2014 itinerary includes dates at Bonnaroo and Britain’s The Great Escape fest.
