Yes, ladies and gentlemen. The cat's out of the bag and there's nothing that can stop this mighty hit tune from happening.

Not only did we get a peek at the artwork for Frankmusik's new single "Do It In The AM" exclusively at CherrytreeRecords.com this morning, the full radio edit of the track plus a bunch of remixes have now been unleashed as well. And oh yes, it has been worth the wait. "Do It In The AM" is fingerlickin' good, so all you pop heads better get ready for a dose of sweetness.

Featured on the track are Frank's label mates Far East Movement who add some punchy rhymes to the song. As earlier indicated by the "The Fear Inside" and now again by "Do It In The AM," Frank's new "American pop" sound is a lot more compact and more tightly produced compared to his work on "Complete Me." But fear not. This new work is a signature slice of Frankmusik's brand of prog pop, featuring his pitch-perfect delivery, the Frank falsetto and his pop playfullness that make him a pop star unlike any other.

Co-written by Martin "Cherry Cherry Boom Boom" Kierszenbaum, "Do It In The AM" is as a massive summer jam with an instantly catchy and sparkly melodic hook. The line "A to the M and then we do it again" dominates the track and is a lyric to remember because you will be singing it along often in the months to come.

"The Cherrytree House Sessions Vol. 1" is Available Now

Cherrytree-house-sessions-1

Have you ever wondered what it would sound like if your favorite artists would play a show in your living room? That's exactly what you will find out when you listen to "The Cherrytree House Sessions Volume 1," which is an eclectic collection of acoustic and intimate performances by artists like Robyn, Sting, Feist, Kelis, Ellie Goulding and Far East Movement.

What sets these performances apart is that they were all recorded at The Cherrytree House, which is the office of Cherrytree Records founder and chairman Martin "Cherry Cherry Boom Boom" Kierszenbaum. His office is set up as a multi-functional space with comfortable couches and a large soundboard set up next to his desk that face a small stage area with instruments, lighting and a large Cherrytree House banner on the other side of the room.

The story behind the "The Cherrytree House Sessions Volume 1" is as remarkable as its performances. After launching Cherrytree Records (an Interscope imprint) in 2005, Kierszenbaum took all of the instruments he'd bought over the years and set them up in his office for artists to use. He started to record the performances of the artists that would visit his office to capture their unique essence. No filler, no fluff. Just good music. 

The first installment of "The Cherrytree House Sessions" takes listeners from Robyn's intensely moving performance of "Be Mine" to the timeless delivery of "The Snow It Melts The Soonest" by Sting, and from the heartfelt songwriting of Keane's "Somewhere Only We Know" to the haunting rendition of "Mirrors" by Natalia Kills. Emerging Swedish singer Mohombi adds a dose of exuberance on his fun performance of "Bumpy Ride" while Ellie Goulding enchants listeners with "The Writer." Far East Movement and Frankmusik team up to perform their global smash hit "Rocketeer."

The release of "The Cherrytree House Sessions Volume 1" is a crowning achievement for Martin Kierszenbaum, a passionate (and may I add, tireless) purveyor of pop. Together with his team he continues to highlight exciting new pop music in unique and unexpected ways and this very special album release is solid proof of that. It's a labor of love for them and a big treat for us.

Cherrytree Pop Chop Minute with Arjan Writes: Chatting with Ellie Goulding

Ellie Goulding was all over South by Southwest in Austin this year - rushing from one live gig to the other and doing loads of interviews in between to highlight the U.S. release of her debut LP "Lights." I caught up with the singer for a quick minute at the W Hotel to chat about being in the States, touring and promoting the album. Goulding is in the middle an extended North American tour. If you have not seen her show, then you must. She delivers a truly stellar performance together with her amazing band that will move you. (Here are two behind-the-scene pics of me and Ellie.)

Cherrytree Pop Chop Minute with Arjan Writes: Chatting with Kerli

Check out the latest episode of Cherrytree Pop Chop Minute with Estonian pop fairy Kerli who is about to unleash some exciting new music after returning to the scene with "Army Of Love" late last year. She likes to refer to her brand of pop as "bubble goth" and her colorful sense of fashion is a reflection of that. In the video, she talks a little bit more about what inspires here. Fun, fresh and forward. Watch, like, share and repeat.
