In a Tuesday afternoon press release, Disney Music Group confirmed that Sofia Carson had signed a joint, worldwide record deal with Republic and Hollywood Records.
It also confirmed the debut date for the “Descendants” star’s debut single.
Per the release, Carson’s “Love Is The Name” will be serviced to US pop radio on April 7. The singer-actress will premiere the song on Radio Disney that same day.
The song will then be made available for sale and global streaming on April 8. An alternate version featuring J Balvin will also be released for global streaming and international purchase.
“Love Is The Name” features an interpolation of Opus’ “Live Is Life.” A BMI listing says the song was previously registered with Demi Lovato as the designated artist.
“I am honored to be a part of Hollywood Records and Republic Records,” said Carson of her formally confirmed record deal. “I feel immensely thankful… I cannot wait to share my music with the world.”
“Sofia is an amazing talent who exemplifies a real triple threat,” added Republic’s Monte Lipman. “We’re thrilled to create an alliance with Hollywood Records and participate in launching Sofia’s career in music.”
