MUSIC NEWS: Neon Hitch Releases Brand New Mixtape 301 to Paradise

The new year means new music for Neon Hitch. The pop songstress just released a brand new five-song mixtape 301 to Paradise over the weekend. The mixtape, or audio-movie as Hitch discribes it, is available for free download via her official site, and was produced by the Grammy-nominated Kinetics & One Love (B.o.B. feat. Hayley Williams - "Airplanes").
I've been making a new album in secret since May. I have moved on from - for now - all the songs intended for my debut album as I felt like that project didn't have enough of my story and truth in it both lyrically and sonically. I was in a low place prior to starting the album over. I know that people will be able to relate to that. Like everyone else, I'm fighting to find my purpose. This journey has made me stronger and fearless - and that's my definition of FREEDOM. Enjoy, my fellow tortured and magical souls... You are not alone. - Neon Hitch

Born on a bus to traveller parents, Neon Hitch (her real name) gained her confidence and gypsy-pop swag as a circus performer whose family made their living traveling and performing throughout the UK.  She caught the attention of Mike Skinner from The Streets who signed her to his label - The Beats Recordings in 2007. Upon her arrival in the US, she was immediately signed to Warner Brothers by Kara DioGuardi (Fox's American Idol, Bravo's Platinum Hit) and began working with Benny Blanco (Ke$ha, Wiz Khalifa, Katy Perry, Taio Cruz, Britney Spears) on a project that was to be her debut album Beg, Borrow, and Steal. During this time she penned Ke$ha's #1 single "Blah Blah Blah" as well as performed as the featured vocalist on Gym Class Heroes' smash hit "Ass Back Home" before her own singles, "Luv U Betta" and "Gold" both went #1 on the Billboard Dance/Club Play Chart in 2012.
