Mitchel Musso is the self-titled debut album of Mitchel Musso. The album was released under Walt Disney Records on June 2, 2009.[2]

Background[edit]

Musso worked with Sam Hollander, Dave Katz, Justin Gray, Curt Schneider, Matthew Wilder, and other producers and songwriters to produce the album in both Los Angeles and New York. Musso himself also contributed co-writing on two songs of the album's thirteen tracks.[3] Mitchel sings solo on all of the tracks except two titled "Us Against the World" and "Shout It". The two are a duet featuring singer Katelyn Tarver[4] and Musso's brother Mason Musso[5] respectively. Musso stated: "But actually my favorite song off my album is a duet, "Us Against the World" and it’s my favorite song. I feel like it’s got the most uh, it’s kind of a dark vibe but at the same time it’s a really upbeat like uh, I would say a happy song. And I think the girls voice, her name’s Katelyn Tarver, so it was awesome getting her on the track."[5] "Let's Make This Last 4Ever" was featured on an episode of Hannah Montana and is also a track on the Hannah Montana 3 soundtrack.

The album was released on June 2, 2009.[2] The physical CD includes a fold-out poster of Musso. They also include an exclusive stream of "Let's Make This Last 4Ever", which will be available once the album is purchased.[4]

The band KSM opened for him on a select number of dates.[6][7] Musso also performed as the opening act for his older brother's band Metro Station on 9 dates between July 23 and August 14, 2009. Honor Society also opened for some of his shows.[5][6] Musso promoted the album by performing three songs off the album at the Wango Tango music festival in Los Angeles on May 9, 2009.[8]
