Nickelodeon And Sony Music Announce The British Release Date For The Second "Big Time Rush" Album 'Elevate'

From Entertainment Focus:
Big Time Rush Return To The UK

Sony Music/Nickelodeon have announced that boy band Big Time Rush will release their second album, Elevate, [in the UK] on 30th Jan 2012. Elevate is the highly anticipated follow-up to the group’s debut, BTR, which has scanned over 700,000 albums worldwide and entered the UK Official Charts at no. 14 earlier this year. To date, Big Time Rush - Kendall Schmidt, James Maslow, Carlos Pena and Logan Henderson - have sold over 3 million digital tracks worldwide.

Elevate takes Big Time Rush’s distinctive sound to new heights. The songs on the album were produced by top music hit makers including Ryan Tedder, Tricky & The Dream, JR Rotem, and Toby Gad, among others. Elevate features tracks including the first single Music Sounds Better With U (featuring Mann), released 22nd Jan 2012, Elevate, and If I Ruled The World, (featuring Iyaz) plus brand-new music that will debut on upcoming episodes of Big Time Rush, the top performing Nickelodeon TV series of the same name.

Big Time Rush will also be hitting the road beginning late February 2012 on their first-ever headlining multi-city concert dates for the Better With U Tour. Fans will be able to see the music and TV sensations in major cities across the US including a major performance at New York’s famed Radio City Music Hall. "We can't wait to go on the road for our Better With U tour,” said Big Time Rush. “We are so excited to perform songs off our new album for our fans." Special support act One Direction will join Big Time Rush beginning February 24th in Chicago. One Direction’s debut single What Makes You Beautiful became the fastest selling single of 2011 and debuted at #1 on the Official UK Charts.

Big Time Rush’s social media profile has risen just as quickly, with an online community of almost 600,000 Twitter followers and more than 2.3 million Facebook users who really, really “like” them.

The boy band visited the UK 3 times in 2011, selling out concerts at the 02 Shepherd’s Bush Empire and Manchester Academy, signing albums at packed HMV stores across the country and bringing Westfield to a screaming standstill for a performance. Big Time Rush hope to return to the UK for more concerts in 2012 and to promote their new album Elevate.

Now in its second season TV series Big Time Rush follows four best friends from Minnesota who trade in their hockey sticks for music superstardom in Los Angeles. The show has been seen by 5.5 million people in the UK alone and Series 1 has started to air on ITV channels. The launch of the hit series on Nickelodeon was the most watched live-action series premiere in the network’s history.
