Atlantic recording artist Cody Simpson has unveiled a flurry of activity surrounding tomorrow's release of his eagerly awaited new album. "SURFERS PARADISE" – which features the hit single, "Pretty Brown Eyes" – will be available at last on Tuesday, July 16th.

Simpson will celebrate with a number of high profile TV appearances, kicking off tomorrow with a visit to the nationally syndicated LIVE with Kelly and Michael (check local listings). The next day – Wednesday, July 17th – will see the Australian-born pop sensation sitting down on CBS New York's The Couch, followed Friday, July 19th by a headline performance on Fox's Fox & Friends All-American Summer Concert Series.

"SURFERS PARADISE" – which follows the Australian-born pop star's 2012 debut, "PARADISE" – rocketed into the top 5 on the iTunes Stores' "Top Pop Albums" chart within hours of its pre-order getting underway. Among the collection's many highlights are collaborations with Asher Roth (on "Imma Be Cool") and the one and only Ziggy Marley ("Love"). "SURFERS PARADISE" is streaming now exclusively at www.codysimpson.com/blog/listen-cody-simpson-s-surfers-paradise-album-737111.

Hailed by Billboard as a "happy-go-lucky...summer anthem," "Pretty Brown Eyes" has immediately proven one of Simpson's biggest hits thus far. The track is currently scoring at Top 40 radio outlets nationwide, after proving yet another Radio Disney favorite for the massively popular young artist. The "Pretty Brown Eyes" companion video has also just been added to Fuse's "Pop Hits" rotation, with frequent play continuing on both MTV Hits and TeenNick. The clip – directed by Cameron Duddy (Bruno Mars, Cee Lo Green, P!nk) – is already an unqualified YouTube smash, drawing close to 6.5 million views and counting at Cody's official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/user/CodySimpsonMusic.

Simpson also recently unveiled the latest track/video from "SURFERS PARADISE," "Summertime of Our Lives." The tender beach ballad's companion video – directed by acclaimed Toronto filmmakers The Young Astronauts – has quickly earned over 1 million views at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UA0wb6E3hyg.

Simpson has spent much of the past year on the road, including his currently ongoing North American headline tour which comes to NYC's Best Buy Theater, with a sold out show, this Thursday, July 18th and is set to wrap July 20th at Boston's House of Blues. From there, Cody will rejoin Justin Bieber's world-conquering Believe Tour for a series of sold out shows in such cities as Toronto, Detroit, Newark, Brooklyn, Jacksonville, Tampa, Atlanta, and Washington, DC. In November, Simpson and Bieber will partner once again for a hugely anticipated tour of Cody's beloved Australia – for up-to-the-minute tour and ticket information, please visit www.codysimpson.com/tour.

Simpson will also find time to serve in his recently announced role as the new ambassador for Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend's Teen Cancer America, a charity devoted to improving the lives of teenagers and young people with cancer. Cody will help promote cancer awareness and education while supporting those who are raising funds for special cancer units for teens and young adults ages 13-24. In addition, Simpson will team up with the legendary Daltrey to discuss Teen Cancer America on an upcoming installment of AXS tv's Dan Rather Reports, set to air in August.
