New music from R5 is coming sooner than we thought!
Over the weekend, we shared the news that R5 would be releasing a new EP called Heart Made Up On You soon and now we have the official details.
R5’s third EP will release on July 22 and starting July 15, fans can pre-order the EP at iTunes, Amazon Music and Google Play. R5 have also announced a September 30 release date for their yet-to-be-titled sophomore full-length album.
Heart Made Up On You features four new tracks: first single “Heart Made Up On You,” a drums-and-guitar-driven anthem that explores the line between immediate happiness and inevitable heartbreak; the playful sing-along of “Easy Love”; the vibrant pop of “Things Are Looking Up”; and the mile-high, sweeping chorus of “Stay With Me.”
In other R5 news, the band has joined with Office Depot, Inc. for ‘Gotta Get INSPIR5D,’ a campaign encouraging students to work hard, do greater and think bigger. R5 is supporting this mission by sharing their own inspirational stories in an effort to motivate students to work hard and follow their dreams.
From July 21 through September 30 at most Office Depot and OfficeMax store locations, fans can experience a one-of-a-kind augmented reality engagement with the band. By using a smartphone, and one of Office Depot’s mobile apps R5 “comes alive” on the phone’s screen, delivering video messages and providing an opportunity for fans to take a photo with the band.
Adding to the exclusive in-store experience, fans who make an in-store purchase of $75 or more can receive a limited edition R5 ‘Gotta Get INSPIR5D’ sticker sheet. The stickers unlock exclusive R5 band member interviews, an exclusive R5 live performance, and include a code for a free download of the new R5 EP, Heart Made Up On You.
Office Depot and OfficeMax visitors can also participate in the ‘Gotta Get INSPIR5D’ campaign via social media using #INSPIR5D and enter a contest to win a trip to Chicago to meet R5 and attend their concert on September 19. Visit www.officedepot.com/R5 for sweepstakes entry and rules.
