– Cassadee Pope announced this morning that she would release a new acoustic disc, "Rise and Shine," on Aug. 7.
Pope said she would put out two of the songs this Friday - "Let Me Go" and "Built This House."
This marked the first time that Pope has helped write all of the songs on one of her releases and co-produced.
"Rise and Shine is a collection of songs that talk about where I've been and where I'm headed," said Pope in a Music Row article. "I wanted people to hear these in their purest form so I went with a more stripped back sound that really lets the lyrics stand out. My hope is that these songs help aid people into feeling every emotion they need to let out."
The track listing is:
1. Let Me Go (Cassadee Pope, Tina Parol, Kevin Rudolph)
2. Hoodie (Cassadee Pope, Johan Fransson, Emily Weisband)
3. California Dreaming (Cassadee Pope, Alex Kline, Shane Stevens)
4. Counting On The Weather (Cassadee Pope, Bobby Huff, Blair Daly)
5. Hangover (Cassadee Pope, Butch Walker)
6. Rise and Shine (Cassadee Pope, Danny Orton, Matt Scannell)
7. Sand Paper (Cassadee Pope, Alex Kline, Shane Stevens)
8. Built This House (Cassadee Pope, Forest Glen Whitehead, Kelly Archer)
Pope's last release, "Stages," came out in February 2019.
