Gavin Degraw To Release Brand New Studio Album ‘Make A Move’ On October 14th 2013

Multi-platinum selling recording artist Gavin DeGraw announces that his highly-anticipated fourth studio album, MAKE A MOVE, is set for release on October 144th via Sony Music, available now for pre-order on iTunes and Amazon. Gavin recently released a video for the album’s first single “Best I Ever Had,” directed by acclaimed lens man Shane Drake.

Recorded mainly in Los Angeles, MAKE A MOVE reunites DeGraw with multi-platinum producer Butch Walker (Fall Out Boy, Taylor Swift, P!nk) and multi-platinum, Grammy award-winning producer and OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder, who co-wrote with Gavin the smash single “Not Over You” from Gavin’s acclaimed 2011 studio release “Sweeter.” Other A-list producers on the album include Busbee (Jason Aldean, Kelly Clarkson, P!nk), Martin Johnson (Avril Lavigne, Jason Derulo, Boys Like Girls), Benny Blanco (Bruno Mars, Keith Urban, Maroon 5) and Kevin Rudolf (Justin Timberlake, The Black-Eyed Peas, Nelly Furtado). The album’s first single “Best I Ever Had” was recently hailed by Billboard as “a refreshingly rhythmic return for a singer who benefits from a change of pace.” Other tracks on the album include “Finest Hour,” co-written with Ryan Tedder, the compelling and powerful “Everything Will Change,” and title track “Make A Move.”
