Christina Perri hits the studio with Sam Hollander, Kevin Griffin

10 Jun


Singer and songwriter Christina Perri has recently recorded new material with hitmakers Sam Hollander and Kevin Griffin.

It is yet to be known whether the session was intended for another artist or Perri’s upcoming third studio collection under Atlantic Records.

Hollander’s songwriting resume includes works for One Direction (“Rock Me”), Katy Perry (“If You Can Afford Me”), Olly Murs (“Beautiful to Me”), Daughtry (“Waiting for Superman”) and Alex & Sierra (“Almost Home”).

Meanwhile, Griffin is responsible for co-writing James Blunt’s “I’ll Be Your Man” [Atlantic Records], Howie Day’s “Collide” [Epic Records], Missy Higgins’ “Scar” [Eleven] and David Cook’s “Avalanche” [RCA Records].

Perri’s last album, 2014’s “Head or Heart,” peaked to number four on the US Albums Chart and spawned hit singles “Human” and “Burning Gold.”

That collection also featured collaborations with Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran, Hilary Duff), Kid Harpoon (Shakira, Florence Welch), John Hill (Rihanna, Charli XCX) and Martin Johnson (Jason Derulo, Taylor Swift).

On the songwriting front, Perri wrote “Empty Handed” for Lea Michele along with the song’s producers David Hodges and John Shanks. The track appears on Michele’s debut album, “Louder,” out now via Columbia Records.
