The 16-year-old singer/songwriter has announced a 36-city North American headline tour featuring special guest Ryan Beatty and Before You Exit.
The “Paradise Tour” takes its name from Simpson’s debut studio album, released in September on Atlantic. His second (as-yet-untitled) album is due out this summer.
In the meantime, look out for his new single, “Pretty Brown Eyes,” which is set for release April 23. Simpson, who is up for several Radio Disney Music Awards, will perform the tune at the awards show April 27 in Los Angeles. The show will be broadcast live from the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on The Disney Channel, Radio Disney, Vevo and their respective websites.
The Aussie also has a book coming out Oct. 24. His official autobiography – “Welcome To Paradise: My Journey” – includes plenty of photos and “exclusive details about Cody’s incredible life on and off stage.”
