Harry Hudson has released his anticipated sophomore album, Hey, I’m Here For You via MSFTS/Roc Nation. The 15-track project is a powerful display of Harry’s artistry, showcasing his vocal technique, musicality and vision. The project, now available at all digital retailers, features collaborations with Jaden Smith and Astrid S, as well as producers Mike Dean (Kanye West, Travis Scott, Madonna), Jess Jackson (Kanye West, Pop Smoke), Blake Slatkin (24kGoldn, Benny Blanco), and more. The album showcases Harry’s newfound confidence and maturity as he learns to be there for himself so that he can be there for others, following a difficult time in his life recovering from cancer and the sudden death of his father in 2018. Emerging with a brighter view of the world, Harry delves into a variety of emotions throughout the album including love, self-acceptance, and the rollercoaster highs and lows of life. Harry’s recent single “Overwhelmed” (you can watch the music video HERE), which was featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday, is about self-doubt and a habit of running away in relationships, while also coming to terms with the need to let go in order to grow. His previous single “Closing Doors” ft. Astrid S is about closing one door to work on yourself in order to start a new beginning and was also featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday and has garnered over 1.2 million streams. The uplifting “I Feel Amazing,” which will be the focus track around album release, finds Harry praising the contagious, vacation-like feeling of being in love. Recently, Harry spoke with Rolling Stone to discuss his cancer journey and new music check (you can check it out HERE). Harry also just released his “Hey I’m Here For You No. 1” album merch collection which is inspired by his friendships with Kourtney Kardashian and Addison Rae. The sweatsuit collection comes in two colorways, blue and black, and includes positive quotes from Kourtney (“Joy is doubled by others and sorrow is halved by others”) and Addison (“Keep your face to the sun and you will never see the shadows”).
The title of the album is taken from the phrase “Hey, I’m Here For You” – a lesson in learning how to love and accept the man in the mirror so that Harry can be there for himself and in turn be there for others during their struggles. Taking this concept and using his platform with more than 60 million total streams and a loyal 924K social media followers to encourage collaborations and creative artistry, Harry often teams up with his friends – Jaden Smith is featured on album track “Just Slide,” and appeared in the look book for Harry’s most recent merch drop which immediately sold out. He spoke with Justin Bieber on Justin’s Instagram to chat about music, passion and purpose, and as an ambassador for Teen Cancer America he spearheaded fundraising with help from Kylie Jenner to build a center for teens undergoing cancer treatment at Vanderbilt University in Nashville which will open early next year. The facility will be complete with 24-hour access to video games, iPads, a meditation room, and a portable recording studio – all meant to be a fun and creative sanctuary for teens who are isolated while undergoing treatment. With a unique and inspiring of hope, courage and love, Harry and his message of perseverance, living your fullest potential, self-love, and helping others is really beautiful and welcome during these challenging and divisive times.
