It’s About Us, the highly anticipated Columbia/Syco debut album from The X Factor U.S.A. winners, Alex & Sierra, is available for pre-order at iTunes, beginning today http://smarturl.it/ItsAboutUs.

The first single from the new album, “Scarecrow,” which had its television debut to a packed plaza on NBC’s the TODAY SHOW’s outdoor concert series, is kicking off a memorable launch at radio, while the video for the effusive song debuted this past Friday on VEVO, culminating with the broadcast premiere of the new clip later the same day on FUSE TV.  The popular lyric video for “Scarecrow” has already surpassed 1.1 million views, featuring puppets cast in Alex & Sierra’s likeness.  The new clip shows the winsome duo trading verses in scenic field and cityscapes enlivened by the powerful first single.  “Scarecrow” is available on iTunes now.

Fans looking forward to seeing the charismatic group live will get ample opportunity later this summer, with Alex & Sierra heading out on the road on selected dates with both Colbie Caillat and Train in the months of August and September (dates listed below.)  Visit www.alexandsierraofficial.com for ticket info.

The hardworking duo collaborated with multiple noted producers and songwriters on the new album, including Toby Gad (Beyoncé), John Legend, Sam Hollander (Neon Trees, Gym Class Heroes), and Julian Bunetta (One Direction), among others.  Other songs include “Give Me Something,” “Almost Home,” “Broken Frame,” “Back To You,” and more.

After wowing all of America on The X Factor U.S.A.’s third and final season, and reaching #1 on iTunes with their covers of A Great Big World’s “Say Something,” and Sara Bareilles’ “Gravity,” the group inked their album deal with Columbia Records and Syco Music.  Alex & Sierra have already 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.

Alex Kinsey and Sierra Deaton met while still in high school.  The duo formed a close relationship, with Sierra following musician/singer Alex on his run of shows across Florida.  Soon Alex began encouraging Sierra to join him on stage.  The collaboration began to blossom creatively, gradually transitioning into Alex & Sierra.  The effusive duo captured their initial X Factor audition in front of a rubber ducky shower curtain in Alex’s college dorm.   The performance would eventually snag them a spot on The X Factor in May of 2013.  Mentored by Simon Cowell, Alex & Sierra grew into one of the franchise’s most popular acts, winning America’s vote week after week on Season 3 and becoming the first group to win top honors on the U.S. edition of the music competition show.

Their tremendous iTunes success proved they had captured all of America’s hearts.  Now, with their long- awaited first album, It’s About Us, available for pre-order in advance of its October 7th release date, Alex & Sierra are eager to show that it’s always been all about their fans.
