Cimorelli Announce Second Album ‘Alive’ and First Book ‘Lessons Learned’

Cimorelli dropped some unexpected but exciting news yesterday- they’re releasing their second album and writing a book! The album, titled Alive, is set to release this December. Yes, that means two full-length Cimorelli albums in one year!

Alive is described as “a positive, uplifting collection of life songs and some worship songs”. It also delves into heavier topics, such as “the urge to give up and end it all, worthlessness, [and] addiction.” The collection is said to be different from anything else they’ve released before, and includes a combination of older and newer tunes.

If you preorder Alive via PledgeMusic, you receive an automatic download of a new song from the album, One More Night. The song is mostly written by Dani Cimorelli, who was inspired to write it after talking to a fan on Twitter and telling her not to give up.

The reaction to the song has already been overwhelmingly positive!

In other exciting news, Cimorelli also announced their first book, titled “Lessons Learned: A Collection of Stories, Encouragement, & Lessons We’ve Learned”. Christina Cimorelli said the book “has been a dream of mine for a long time and I can’t believe it’s coming true!”

“Lessons Learned” will include personal stories and life advice on topics such as family, friends, relationships, self-worth, career and success, written entirely by the girls themselves. The book is said to “uplift and inspire you, while also making you laugh and maybe cry.”

Both of these projects are being launched through the band’s PledgeMusic Page. Along with Alive and “Lessons Learned”, there are loads of other exclusive merchandise items and interactions with Cimorelli you can get. These unique experiences range from a personalized video message to having lunch or dinner with the girls! Several items have already sold out in under 24 hours.

Cimorelli have already had an action-packed 2016, with 3 tours, a movie, and their first album Up At Night being released. Their second album and book will definitely make for a strong finish to an already successful year for the band!

You can preorder the album and book on Cimorelli’s PledgeMusic page. You can also see the girls on tour this fall in Europe.
