On July 15, 2014, Alex & Sierra (the winners of “The X Factor” U.S. in 2013) and Syco Music/Columbia Records announced the title, track listing and release date of Alex & Sierra’s first album. The 13-track album, which is titled, “It’s About Us,” is due for release in the U.S. and Canada on Oct. 7, 2014. In addition, Alex & Sierra have announced several tour dates that will take place from Aug. 29 to Sept. 28, 2014. Alex & Sierra (whose full names are Alex Kinsey and Sierra Deaton) are headlining most of the concerts, but some of the shows will have Alex & Sierra as the opening act on the Train/Colbie Caillat tour. (See the tour dates at the end of this article.)
Pre-orders for “It’s About Us” began on July 15, 2014. People who pre-order the album will receive the album track “Little Do You Know,” which can be listened to here. People who pre-order the album will also get other selected downloadable songs from the album on a bi-weekly basis leading up to the album’s release on Oct. 7, 2014. (See the album’s track listing at the end of this article.)
According to Syco Music/Columbia Records, Alex & Sierra collaborated with several songwriters for the album, including Josh Gad, John Legend, Sam Hollander and Julian Bunetta. In February 2014, the Daily Mirror reported that One Direction’s Harry Styles and Legend wrote a song for Alex & Sierra, who are boyfriend and girlfriend in real life. According to a Daily Mirror report published on Feb. 23, 2014, the song “is one of more than 18 unheard tracks penned by the 1D star [and] is part of Harry’s personal projects and is unrelated to his work with the boy band.”
The Daily Mirror described the song as a “heartfelt ballad” with these lyrics: “I saw your face, I heard your name / Felt the blood rushing through my veins / I still remember / How could I forget?” It is unclear which song that is on the album.
As previously reported, Alex & Sierra’s first single, “Scarecrow” (which was released on June 23, 2014) failed to make it onto the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Given the flop sales of “Scarecrow,” it doesn’t look very likely that “It’s About Us” will be a big hit.
Alex & Sierra performed “Scarecrow” on NBC’s “Today” on June 23, 2014, but that high-profile TV appearance did not help the song become a hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, which ranks songs based on U.S. sales, airplay and social media. A lyric video for “Scarecrow” (directed by Alex Purifoy) premiered on May 27, 2014. The official “Scarecrow” music video premiered on July 11, 2014. In May and June 2014, Alex & Sierra also made promotional appearances at several New York-based media outlets, including Billboard, People, Vevo and Teen Vogue.
In its first week on sale, “Scarecrow” reached the Top 30 of the iTunes (U.S.) Top 100 Songs chart. However, it was a far lesser achievement than what Alex & Sierra accomplished in late 2013, when two covers songs (A Great Big World’s “Say Something” and Sara Bareilles’ “Gravity”) that Alex & Sierra performed on “The X Factor” U.S. reached No. 1 on iTunes (U.S.) Top 100 Songs chart. Alex & Sierra’s versions of those songs also failed to make it onto the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
As part of “The X Factor” grand prize, Alex & Sierra won $1 million and a contract with Syco Music/Sony Music. According to a Sony Music press release, “Scarecrow” was co-written by Alex & Sierra, along with Martin Johnson and Sam Hollander.
Here is the track listing for Alex & Sierra’s “It’s About Us” album:

Keeping the momentum of the buzz from their album announcement and new music video for ‘Scarecrow’, Alex & Sierra have released the heartbreaking acoustic ballad, ‘Little Do You Know’, as a promo single for fans.
Again, very on trend, still pop, but has that folk sound that radio is going nuts over. I think this would be the perfect fall follow up to ‘Scarecrow’ because, in all honesty, it’s a better song. The subject is relatable, the melodies and lyrics are spot on, and the two sound great. Alex & Sierra are probably the most accessible reality talent show winners and I hope they can make it. It just comes down to if radio wants to take a chance on their music.

Clevver News: Alex & Sierra “Scarecrow” Music Video 11 SECRETS!
Alex and Sierra performed their new ballad Little Do You Know on NBC’s Today in June and now the studio version is available online.
The song is a clear reminder why fans fell in love with the duo on season 3 of X Factor USA. The love birds sing about a difficult relationship and flawlessly croon in unison. “Just wait, I love you like I’ve never felt the pain,” they sing.
Little Do You Know appears on their upcoming debut album, It’s About Us, and fans can get a copy even before the album’s release later this summer.
“You can now preorder #itsaboutus on @iTunesMusic! & you’ll get a new song “little do you know” as soon as you do!” the two wrote on their officialTwitter page on Monday.
Alex Kinsey, 22, and Sierra Deaton, 23, have been promoting their upcoming album with stops atPeople magazine, Billboard, Teen Vogue and Vevo.
“The last couple of days have been crazy, but so much fun,” Deaton said in a behind-the-scenes video from the promo tour. “We’ve been going from place to place just playing for people and, you know, letting people know about the album and what we’ve been up to, what the songs are about. It’s fun to get to see what songs people respond to the most.”
They released the album’s first single, Scarecrow, in May, and according to Kinsey it’s “a really good first look at the album.” He added, “I think that it explains our personalities pretty well. It’s a fun song. It’s really exciting and we hope that people really gravitate toward it like we have.”
They rose to fame in 2013 by winning the third and last season of ‘X Factor USA’ on FOX. Real couple Alex and Sierra is signed to Columbia Records.
Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! Their album is going to be so good. PRE-ORDERED!
Columbia Records may be doing a poor job with “Scarecrow” (can’t believe that as of this post the song is nowhere to be found on the Top 100 chart of iTunes!) but I think it’s all going to be OK if they move on ASAP to single #2 picking “Little Do You Know” obviously. I am loving “Little Do You Know” better than “Scarecrow”, and that’s the truth. I understand the reasoning behind releasing “Scarecrow” as first single but it was uptempo and it sounded more radio-friendly, but “Little Do You Know” sounds to be as a potential “Say Something” for Alex and Sierra.
Sierra’s vocals in the new song are just heavenly, the contrast with Alex’s voice makes a perfect combination, and overall sound of the pop ballad is delicate and beautiful and it makes you want to hear “Little Do You Know” over and over again. The lyrics talk about a ‘difficult moment’ in the relationship due to something Alex’s done (Sierra: “I’m ready to forgive you but forgetting is a harder fight”) but it all seems to resolve in the end. O to the M-G. The chorus just slays my soul so much!
