Haley Reinhart will have her cake and eat it, too, this year. Not only is the groovy pop songstress mounting a headlining tour here in the states this June, but she has announced plans to extensively tour overseas this fall. The tour is in support of her brand new sophomore studio album, Better, which Popdust raved about here. New tour stops include Paris, Munich, Amsterdam and Vienna, among many other major markets.

Back in March, Reinhart spoke with us, in detail, about her new album. “My journey has been incredible. I decided to do this project all on my own with my team in LA and my publishing company. It feels right to release ‘Better’ on my own. It could be somewhere different in the near future, but this feels right,” she said.

She even teased that many labels have approached her with lucrative deals. “I had a lot of different ones contact me. It took a long time to make sure things were right. I want to get this album out there. Maybe, I’ll find the right home eventually. When you have a gut feeling, you don’t want to really wait. I’ve made my fans wait long enough for the second record. I’m ready to get this out now.”

Haley Reinhart Talks New Album ‘Better,’ Return To ‘Idol’ & JLo’s History Lesson

“The theme throughout [this album] is confidence. Even with ‘Listen Up,’ I would gear a lot of the record toward the ladies out there. The new album has the same kind of thing throughout it, too. The title ‘Better’ is simple and sweet, and the word itself means to progress or evolve or grow. It’s positive. Even in a lot of the artwork I’m doing, I have roses represented throughout all the photos. I wanted to tie in something that represents growth and evolution. A rose is constantly growing, blooming, flourishing.”

Better is now available on iTunes.
