International music, television and film star Drake Bell is preparing for the June 28th release of his latest EP A Reminder with the worldwide premiere of a new track “Terrific.” A video portrait teaser for the song can be found on his official website.
The four tracks on A Reminder are influenced by childhood pop heroes to more eclectic contemporary sounds – The Beatles and Harry Nilsson to Elliot Smith and Rufus Wainwright. “Terrific” especially showcases a more mature sound. According to Drake, “The song is really about calling someone out on not being themselves – people growing up and trying to fit into different scenes, getting into different things that aren’t necessarily good for them or who they are.” “Terrific” is available now on iTunes and other digital platforms, along with an iPhone app with new photos, video and tour info.
Drake learned to play guitar in 1998 from The Who’s legendary guitarist Roger Daltrey, with whom he worked on the movie Changing Destiny. Since then Drake has released two successful albums and performed on sold out tours, in addition to his acting work on Nickelodeon’s smash hit “Drake & Josh” and numerous TV and film appearances. A Reminder will be his first music release in five years.
The full track listing for A Reminder is:
2. You’re Not Thinking
3. Big Shot
4. Speak My Mind
