Karmin: 2012 Album Preview

Mashup Mondays: Karmin

Karmin play on the roof of Billboard Studios during a mashup sessions.

Title: TBA | Release Date: Spring

Self-described "swag pop" duo Karmin ( @karminmusic) -- Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan -- has already racked up more than 100 million views on YouTube, an American Music Award (in the inaugural new media category) and a record deal, largely thanks to the pair's unique covers of pop hits, most notably Chris Brown's "See Me Now," as well as its original material. Now the twosome, who met at the Berklee College of Music, is working with such producers as Claude Kelly and Tricky Stewart while prepping its debut as Antonio "L.A." Reid's first signing to the newly re-formed Epic Records. "It's like the covers on crack," Noonan says of the project. "A lot of rapping, a lot of earth tones, a lot of big drums and big pop choruses."
