Singer-songwriter Jena Irene Asciutto has announced the release of her highly anticipated debut album, Cold Fame. Available now via Original 1265 Recordings, Cold Fame includes gorgeous hit single, “Floating Down the River,” as well as the anthemic pro-cannabis culture track “So I Get High,” which premiered on W Magazine and which Fuse raved “… showcases the powerhouse vocals that had millions supporting her.” The follow up to 2016’s Innocence EP, Cold Fame takes listeners through Jena’s experiences and growth over the past few years.
Cold Fame was written and recorded after Jena spent six months of her teenage years as a contestant in the 2014 season of American Idol, ultimately placing as the runner-up. Through her performances on the show and the subsequent tour, fans became familiar with her big voice and daring attitude. But given the chance to write her own narrative, she displays a range of sounds and sensibilities that take us through the life of a modern young woman. “This album is the story of my becoming a woman and becoming an artist,” says Jena of the album. “The songs are very blunt, very raw and authentic. I think it’s a good thing for girls my age to know that it’s OK to be open and be yourself.”
Jena Irene Asciutto has maintained and nurtured a dedicated following since her stint on American Idol. With a social media following of over 200k+, Jena released her debut EP Innocence in early 2016 to fan acclaim and is set for an exciting 2017. Not only does she have the release of Cold Fame, she’s also got a nationwide tour in the works and cool upcoming opportunities working towards revitalizing the city of Detroit’s music scene alongside the Detroit Institute of Music Education and her label partner Original 1265 Recordings.
