Jesse McCartney Announces In Technicolor Release Date: See The Retro Cover Art

With last year’s four-track EP, Jesse McCartney made it clear that he had one goal in breaking his four-year hiatus: to make you move. And judging from its lead single — the funk-tinged “Superbad” — he’s about to throw a full-on dance party with his full-length album.

And it all starts on July 22, when In Technicolor hits shelves.

McCartney says his fourth studio album is “by far my proudest musical achievement to date” — one he reached by stepping out of his comfort zone with the help of artists like Hot Chelle Rae and producers the Elev3n.

“We wrote a song that – somewhat accidentally – nailed a sound I was searching for for myself. It was retro, it was contemporary. I envisioned real horns, real instruments, syncopated and tight. That song ‘Back Together,’ was really the start of this album,” he said. “After that, my direction was really clear to me and I knew exactly what I wanted.”

And while in the past he’d write “40 or 50 demos” and pick from there, this time around, he and his collaborates wrote the 11 songs on the album “with no waste.”

McCartney lists ’70s and ’80 music icons like Michael Jackson and Prince as his chief influences, and it shows on tracks like “Superbad” and “Back Together.”

“This album had a completely different energy from the start,” he added. “This final product is by far my proudest musical achievement to date.”

Jesse McCartney’s new album In Technicolor is available July 22nd but you can pre-order it starting tomorrow, Tuesday June 10th at iTunes, Amazon, and!

YAY! So happy. On 10/26 I set a goal to lose 20 pounds by the end of this year, I did that in November. So, I figured why not shoot for 30? I DID IT! As of 12/25/2013 I am down 32 pounds!!!! I am so very proud of myself for setting a goal and reaching it. For not giving up. For working out as hard as I can. For saying no to food that I really wanted. YES! 32 down and 18 to go! I give myself until March to lose the last 18. I WILL!

OMG. Why did I do this to myself? It's so annoying! I still don't know if I like it or not, but i just got it done on Friday, so I'm gonna stick it out until it's healed to see how I really feel. It's crazy how I never really wanted it before, but I read about it in a story and had to have it. I wanted it all last week, and then Friday I just went to do it. Now I'm unsure. We'll see how long it stays!

Took a look at my stats. Yesterday there were 191 views to my journal. Wow. Beyond creepy, but wow. It's funny that little ole me can make people so mad. Little ole boring me. Haha

I don't think I can work out tonight. I hurt my thigh. :( Yesterdays' 30/30 was rough. So intense! It felt so good once it was over, though. I love that feeling after a workout where I'm so tired I feel like passing out. It means I worked hard. I kind of really want to go tonight. We'll see!

I love touching my body now and feeling muscles in all of these places where I used to have fat. Makes me feel so accomplished. I never want to lose my muscles now that they are there. LOL

My whole life is working out and One Direction. Who am I? lol I don't care. I'm happy!

Why is work going to be so busy today? I just wanted to keep up with 1d on the Brits! Boo! I hate being an adult sometimes. LOL Stupid boyband is ruining (making better?) my life!

I do love being an adult when it comes to bootcamp, though. I can't wait to go back tonight! Whoever thought that this girl would be addicted to working out? I need to sweat! I just went last night, but I already want to go back. Oh well. At least it's a healthy addiction.

I am on a mission to write a happy song. All of my shit is so sad. That needs to change! So, by the end of Feb. I want to write a happy song!

Ugh. I really really love working out, but man the after affects suck. My everything hurts. Also, my foot/ankle is still bothering me. It sucks, but I have to keep pushing! Gotta keep going to look sexy for my 26th bday!

Speaking of bootcamp, I gotta buy more classes! 15 classes is $285!!! I just gave them $510! Why must my addiction be so damn expensive? :( I need to get rich! haha I've spent over $3000 in the last year. I am INSANE! The results are so worth it, though. Friends, good people to talk to, a great workout, and eye candy. Well worth the cash! Plus, I really love working out. I never thought I would say that I loved running, but I do now. I really do. Plus, these muscles are amazing!

Going to an Oscar party! WOO! I'm excited. Going for a hike with my ODF peeps on Saturday. That should be fun! The brunch last week was amazing. I really love my friends. They have helped me so much and I am such a better person for knowing them!

Think I want to go for tattoo #7 soon. I just got the last one, but it doesn't hurt me, so why not?

ALSO, the biggest thing to happen to me recently: I HAVE BEYONCE TICKETS!!!!!! WOOOOOO!!! I'm gonna see her in June! SO happy! I love life! I get to see my queen! I think I may die that night. Not able to take her flawlessness. lol

I'm tired of being alone. I'm tired of being sad. I'm just tired. I can say that I don't have anyone and mean it. I am all alone in this world. No one gives a damn about me. My mom lives in the same house as me and doesn't even notice the downward spiral I've been on. I would give everything I have just to have one person care. Just to have one true friend. One person ask me how I am and listen. I remember singing "Nobody loves me. Nobody cares." over and over as a small child. Flash forward to being 23 and I still feel the same. I always prayed for 1 person to love me. I never got that. Just a mom and a sister that beat and use me. People that say they like me, but do they ever call or text me? Do they ever ask me to do things? Do they even want to be around me? No. I put in effort, but I'm the only one that does. It's not like I'm a downer or anything. I try really hard to make people happy. No one does that for me though.

I am so sick of being in my room. It's to the point that I go in the living room to get a "break." I'm sick of being here alone. I'm sick of my mom being the only person I see. I want to be a normal 23 year old. I want to go out. I want to have fun, but apparently I'm not good enough for anyone want to go out with. I try. I really do. It makes it so much worse. What is it about me that makes it so I've never been able to make friends? Am I just not supposed to be happy? I don't get it. It's so hard.

I am so fucked up. I know this, but does this mean I'm not worthy of love? Of friendship? Of getting to be happy? Why me? Why is my life like this? I'm so tired of it all. I'm so tired of being me. I just wish for one day that I could be normal and have friends. Go out and have fun. I don't know how much longer I can keep living if this is what my life is. For years I would wish and hope for a better life. Now I give up on doing that. I have no more hope. I'm just too tired to do that anymore.

Again I'm going down this dark tunnel of self hate and deep sadness. I really hate that I can't keep the tears out of my eye and that I have to try to hide the sadness in my voice when I answer the phone here at work. I'm so sick of being on this endless cycle of sadness and hope that leads to nothing.

I hate my life. Pure and simple. It's horrible. Nothing goes right for me. I never get anything that I want. I am not happy. I don't feel like anyone loves me. It's horrible. I would not wish feeling like this on anyone.

Every decision I make ends in fail. Why can't I just do something right for a change? I can't lose weight and keep it off. I can't make good friends. I can't get a boyfriend. I can't get a good job. Nothing at all works for me. I'm just a fuck up and a disappointment. Always have been and always will be. I did have hope that this year would be better, but who am I fooling? It will be more of the same.

I hate that I still live with my mother. I hate that I don't have a life. I hate just really hate every single thing about being me.

LOL! I just randomly clicked on my journal and saw an entry from last year when we moved. Now we're moving on Sunday to Burbank from Glendale. Time sure flies. I can't wait to get out of here. The rent is cheaper there and people speak English! No one speaks English in the building I live in now. It's a huge building and we've only ever lived in small buildings. The downside is we're giving up our dishwasher, so I'm gonna get us a tabletop one. Also, I'm sad that I'm giving up my 2 closets. Really sad. Oh well. This is one step closer to Vegas!

We're getting movers again. Last year it was a disaster! They never showed up and we had to get other ones. My mom cried and it was a mess. This time better be better!

I'm doing the beds again! Oh boy!

Will try to update more!

0Damn, for real? I'm horrible! lol Where to start? So, that job I posted about on 18 June 2009? It's going well. I love the people. I talk to almost everyone on graveyard which is odd. My job is kind of cliquey so it's weird for me to bounce around like I do. What made me start bouncing around? Of course it was a guy. Ugh!

Where do I start about him? He's an asshole. A douchebag. I hate him or I maybe I just wish I did. I've had a crush on him since I got on the floor for training. Then when training was over I actually sat by him. It was so odd the first night because here was the guy I had a crush on for 2 weeks without him knowing I exist and then I'm across from him all night. I don't even think I talked to him. I was too scared! lol Ever since then we have talked a lot more and he's getting under my skin. I like him so much and I wish that I didn't. I really do. He's mean! It's funny and he gets away with it because he's cute. Ugh. I always like the wrong ones.

I don't know how much longer I want to live with my mom. It's a big deal because she never wants me to leave and she needs the financial help. I just feel a bit trapped here. I find myself taking on Sundays at work just so I can get away. I just feel like I want to be an adult, you know? I don't feel like I can totally be me with my mom in the next room. But as of right now having my own place seems like just a dream if I want to speak to my mom.

I had sex for the first time in a few years. Not a good idea because the dude won't stop calling, I feel like we've reversed roles and he's the clingy girl and I',m the dude that got want I wanted and left. So bad!

I'm tryng to figure out what else to write about but it's not coming to me. Will write more later!
