The musical style of the album combined with pop, rock, and pop punk, and features some rock music instruments such as drum and rock guitar. The song "Cherry Pie" has the throwback type feel like Mark Ronson. There are some songs have a guitar sound of punk rock music, such as "19 in 99", "Tijuana" and "All American". The songs like "Get Over Me", "California", "Second Wind" and "Swet" have a combination of Dance-pop and Teenpop feel. And "I Will Wait" is an emotional ballad song inspired by Ed Sheeran, with a clear acoustic guitar sound.
I'm very inspired by rock and pop music, and have those in me, and have done albums like that in the past, so it's going to have that. But it also has some rhythm, it has some soul for sure. I feel like I'm definitely coming into my own as an artist. But it just touches on all sorts of different styles and feels, so when you listen to the album from top to bottom, you know it's taking you on a ride. Like a musical. Like a movie, or something.
Carter will go on an All American North American tour that begins in February 2016. So far the tour includes 18 cities in 30 days. He’ll start in Beverly Hills and end in Nashville. Carter is encouraging his fans to sign-up for updates on his website.
