Cody Simpson is set to perform in Manila next month but before that happens, make sure you've read everything you have to know about him first. For starters, the Aussie singer has released his fifth EP Free which features the new kind of music he's been working on. Need updating on what he's been up to lately? Here are your answers, Candy Girls!

 1  Tell us something about the kind of music you're making now.

"It's an authentic and organic sound that is more me. I feel like it's the first ever record I'm putting out because I finally feel content and comfortable with the sound."

 2  How do you feel now that you have more musical control?

"Great! It's the only way I'll be able to show the world who I really am and what I can offer from a musical standpoint."

 3  What's your favorite part of working on your new album?


"I collaborated with a great producer named Cisco Adler. I also loved having much more creative control on this record. Being in the studio and just doing whatever I thought made sense helped to achieve a laidback and natural vibe."
