Alex and Sierra announce new EP

Alex & Sierra, the duo that won the third and final season of The X Factor USA, have announced that they are releasing an EP!

The couple from Florida were mentored by Simon Cowell who has a reputation for aiding very successful singing groups. They also became the first and only group to win the competition in America. Alex Kinsey and Sierra Deaton stole our hearts at their first televised audition where they sang a bluesy version of Britney Spears’ hit single “Toxic”. Before they even began singing, Alex & Sierra showed off their likable traits when Simon asked the couple if they were brother and sister and Alex replied, “No we kiss so that would be weird.” That earned quite a few giggles from the judges and audience.

After wowing the judges and with their vocals and stage presence at their audition, Alex & Sierra blew through the competition and eventually earned their title as the 2013 X Factor USA winners. After their big win, in May 2014 they debuted their first single “Scarecrow” and announced the release of their first album It’s About Us which came out in October of the same year. The album debuted at #8 on the Billboard 200 Chart, which was a huge accomplishment for the two. They also saw a large amount of success through their music videos for their songs “Scarecrow” and “Little Do You Know” which received over 6 million views each.

Alex & Sierra then went on The Good Guys and a Girl tour with friend Andy Grammer. The couple spent much of 2015 playing shows and working on new material which kept fans anxiously waiting for new music. The time has finally come to hear what they’ve been working on.

In their Instagram post they revealed that the EP will contain studio versions of covers they have already performed as well as some original songs. A release date and title for the EP has not been announced yet but we can’t wait to hear what they have in store for us! To keep up with announcements regarding the EP you can follow Alex & Sierra on Twitter and Instagram. You can also stream their debut album It’s About Us on their YouTube playlist.
