GRAMMY-nominated artist, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Cisco Adler has announced his forthcoming album Hippieland, out June 14th via his label Bananabeat Records. Today, Cisco also released the first visual introduction to Hippieland with the new music video for lead single, "Somethin' More." Shot as a day-in-the-life, the video mirrors the song's relaxed, bright melody and Cisco's barefoot and fancy free vibe as it focuses on the simplicity of life. PRESS HERE to watch the new music video and check out Popdust's first look. "Somethin' More,"which features back-up vocals from Mike Posner and Cody Simpson, is the first taste of Cisco's new music and acts as a sweet reminder that it's okay to want more than we have as long as we can be thankful for having what we need.

Cisco Adler welcomes you to Hippieland, the start of a new artist chapter, uncovering the core of who he is as a music man - one with freedom of expression, freedom of self, and freedom from inhibitions. "Hippieland is a state of mind. A place I choose to reside in all the time," shares Cisco. "I am constantly counting my blessings and smiling in the rain. The rain can be as beautiful as the sun and even more fun to dance in." Holing up at his seaside Bananabeat Studios in Malibu, he personally wrote and produced the entire album in addition to performing vocals, acoustic, bass, and drums with collaborator Martin Estrada on electric guitar. The album is a snapshot of Cisco's essence while allowing him to speak his truth as an artist in music and life from the carefree "Sunday Vibe" featuring Jamtown cohort G. Love to surf-rocking swagger track "High Tide Again" and the blissfully sweet "Everyday Love" to the stripped down, live performance of "Limousine Driver" which finds Cisco with just his guitar and a song.
Cisco Adler will be bringing his California-kissed, roots-tinged indie-pop to major cities across the country with a run of select dates this Spring, where he will be performing brand new material. Beginning April 27th in New York City, Cisco will make stops in DC, Chicago, Denver and Los Angeles before wrapping on May 31st in San Francisco. Tickets are on sale now at www.ciscoadler.org.
As a genre-hopping creative, Cisco Adler has built a celebrated career working across the entertainment industry in many roles, but it is his own artistry that provides the most personal glimpse into Cisco. His teen years spent as a hip-hop head serve as the basis for his rap-like lyrical inspiration and growing up in between the canyons and beaches of Malibu and Maui is the backdrop that frames his perspective and voice. Cisco Adler sounds like a summer day in California with catchy hooks, clever lyrics and breezy melodies that continue to connect with a worldwide community of fans.
Among his many musical projects, Cisco hit the charts with his duo Shwayze and their Top 40 beach-rap take over with their ubiquitous summer jams "Buzzin'" and "Corona and Lime" and collaborated with G. Love and Donavon Frankenreiter for their Americana-meets-surf rock project Jamtown. Cisco had a Top 5 Alternative Rock hit with Mickey Avalon's "Jane Fonda" and a bonafide cult classic with Dirt Nasty's "1980" helping to shape an LA movement and cementing his status as the new keeper of the California sound. Cisco's wide-ranging catalogue encompasses work with the likes of Mike Posner, Adam Lambert, G-Eazy, The Internet, Vic Mensa, Fergie, Tinashe, Gnash, Cody Simpson, and more. He landed a track on The Hangover Soundtrack with Lil Jon and several other major film syncs, and also produced the soundtrack to FOX's reimagined version of THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW: Let's Do the Time Warp Again. Cisco's label Bananabeat Records is a talent incubator and cultural collective based in Malibu.
