Hello is the sixth studio album recorded by Canadian pop rock band Hedley. It was released via Universal Music Canada on November 6, 2015. It debuted atop the Billboard Canadian Albums Chart, becoming the group's first chart-topper, and has since spawned two top-40 singles, "Hello" and "Lose Control".
Lead singer Jacob Hoggard is credited as a writer, producer, and creative director for the album. Other producers include Brian Howes and Jason Van Poederooyen. Canadian songwriter Ryan Stewart, known for his work with Carly Rae Jepsen and Suzie McNeil, also co-wrote five tracks on the album.
The album became available for pre-order on iTunes on September 8, 2015 in conjunction with the digital release of "Lost in Translation". Hello will be released in digital and physical formats, in both a standard and deluxe edition, and will also be available as a vinyl box set. All versions are scheduled for release in Canada on November 6, 2015 via Universal Music Canada. The album will be released in the US through Capitol Records, but no release date has been confirmed of yet.
"Lost in Translation" was released on September 8, 2015 as the lead single off the album. The song failed to enter the Billboard Canadian Hot 100, becoming their first single to miss the chart since it was established in 2007. It has, however, impacted the Canada CHR/Top 40 and Canada Hot AC airplay charts monitored by Billboard through Nielsen BDS Radio.
The title track, "Hello", was released October 9, 2015 as the second official single. It was promoted to Canadian adult contemporary radio in lieu of "Lost in Translation" as the lead single for that format.
"Lose Control" was serviced to Canadian radio on March 4, 2016 as the album's third official single.
"Can't Slow Down" was released to iTunes on October 2, 2015 as the first promotional single off the album. An official audio visualizer was uploaded to the band's Vevo account on the same day. In August 2016 it was serviced to radio as the record's fourth official single.Notes
