Free is the third studio album by Australian recording artist Cody Simpson, released on 10 July 2015 via Coast House Records/Banana Beat Records.[2] The album includes the singles "New Problems" and "Flower". Simpson titled the album Free after he decided he wanted to make the kind of music he wanted without the pressure of other sources. He said: "I'm really excited about Free because it's my first independent record. My first one where I am in 100% creative control of it. And we approached it with a real rock-like sensibility to the recording in the sense that everything's tracked live with the band, like the instrumentation is all live. There's a couple [of] little mess-ups here and there, and that's what makes it."[3] This is Simpson's first independent album after leaving Atlantic Records.
