Multi-GRAMMY® nominated singer/songwriter/producer Charlie Puth has unveiled the companion music video for his latest single “The Way I Am.” Directed by Colin Tilley (Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna, Justin Bieber), the clip can be viewed HERE at Charlie’s official YouTube channel, which boasts over 11 million subscribers.
“The Way I Am” is the latest single off of Charlie’s sophomore album Voicenotes, which earned him the highest chart debut of his career to date – entering the Billboard 200 at #4 and the Top Albums chart at #2 – and was certified Gold by the RIAA only four days after its release. “The Way I Am” is preceded by the album’s trio of hit singles – the 3x-Platinum “Attention,” platinum-certified follow-up “How Long,” and, most recently, “Done For Me (feat. Kehlani),” which was named one of the “Best Songs of 2018” by Billboard and TIME. With every track written and produced by Charlie himself, Voicenotes has also been met with a raft of critical acclaim, including the The New York Times who called it “one of the year’s best pop albums” in a recent Sunday Arts & Leisureprofile.
This Friday, Charlie is set to kick off his biggest North American tour to date, headlining the 2018 Honda Civic Tour. Produced by Live Nation and now in its 17th year, the Honda Civic Tour has established itself as one of the nation’s most compelling, successful music concert tour franchises. The Honda Civic Tour offers concert-goers with an exclusive, interactive and engaging concert experience featuring up-close and personal access to their favorite music performers. Continuing the Honda Civic Tour tradition, Charlie Puth has created a custom exterior design for a Honda Civic Type R and Honda Rebel 300 motorcycle that will be displayed for fans at each stop of the tour.
Honda is also offering fans the chance to enter and to win a Honda Civic of their choice or a custom Honda Rebel 300 motorcycle designed by Honda Civic Tour headliner and singer, songwriter and producer Charlie Puth. As part of the sweepstakes, Honda will also give a VIP experience at a Honda Civic Tour show, which includes tickets to the show and access to a VIP sound check before the show. Fans have the opportunity to win a Civic Sedan, Coupe or Hatchback model in the Honda Civic Tour Sweepstakes. To find more information about the Honda Civic Tour Sweepstakes (including to review the Official Rules), to get a sneak peak of the vehicles, or to purchase tickets, visit www.hondacivictour.com.
New this year, Honda is including an augmented reality element that brings the experience of the Honda Civic Tour to life before your eyes. When viewed through the Honda Civic Tour app, fans can experience 3D images of the custom Honda Civic Type R and Rebel 300. Other pages include special videos (with audio) and interactive images. The Honda Civic Tour augmented reality app is available for iOS and Android devices and can be found on iTunes and the Google Play Store. Fans can also experience the Honda Civic Tour augmented reality at each Honda Civic Tour show.
The 2018 Honda Civic Tour officially gets underway July 13th in Boston, MA at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion, and travels the nation through the summer (see full itinerary below). Highlights include an already sold-out stop at New York City’s world-famous Radio City Music Hall (July 16th) as well as the renowned Greek Theatre in Los Angeles (August 14th). One distinct component of the tour is a first-of-its-kind partnership with MIXhalo, an innovative technology company that has made it possible to deliver studio quality sound directly to the VIP ticket holders in the audience through an app on their smartphones. Multiplatinum recording artist Hailee Steinfeld will be his very special guest support on all dates.
Next week, Charlie will be performing “The Way I Am” on a pair of high profile national television appearances: “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on July 17th and an outdoor set in NYC’s Rockefeller Plaza for this summer’s “Citi Concert Series on TODAY” on July 20th.
Fans can also get virtual backstage access to Charlie Puth through Honda Backstage, a unique behind-the-scenes video series looking at the fascinating stories of some of music’s biggest stars as well as its up-and-coming artists. Hosted on UPROXX.com and UPROXX’s Facebook page, Honda Backstage includes interviews with the artists in which they share their inspirations and discuss the obstacles they faced while in pursuit of their dreams. Honda Stage (www.YouTube.com/HondaStage) offers music fans access to custom live and online music programming and performances, artist interviews and more.
