Fueled by Ramen is continuing its 25th anniversary celebration with a reissue of Cobra Starship's RIAA Gold certified third album, Hot Mess, which is joined by two "Tracks to the Future" - a pair of long lost songs from the band's personal archive, including the previously unreleased "Beautiful Life," produced by Oh, Hush! (Weezer, Jason Derulo) and Seann Bowe (Wiz Khalifa, All That Remains, Ty Dolla $ign).
Produced by Cobra Starship with additional production from Kevin Rudolf (Lil' Wayne, Justin Timberlake, Kanye West), Mike Caren (Bruno Mars, David Guetta, Jason Derulo), and others, Hot Mess made a spectacular chart debut upon its original 2009 release, debuting in the top 5 on the overall Billboard 200 - the band's best-ever chart performance. The album includes such pop breakthroughs as the RIAA gold certified "Hot Mess" and the 2x platinum certified smash, "Good Girls Go Bad" featuring Leighton Meester. Co-written by Rudolf, American Idol's Kara DioGuardi (Kelly Clarkson, Kylie Minogue, Pink), and Cobra Starship, the latter track lit up multi-format radio outlets around the globe, reaching the top 5 on Billboard's "Hot 100" among other charts. A companion video - filmed on New York's Lower East Side and featuring a co-starring performance from Meester, known far and wide for her role as Blair Waldorf on The CW's original Gossip Girl - proved equally successful, earning a 2009 MTV Video Music Awards nomination as "Best Pop Video" and now boasts over 51M views via YouTube alone.
In 2015, after nine years of touring with everyone from Fall Out Boy to Justin Bieber, two Top 40 singles, three RIAA platinum and gold certified singles, and more than 600M global streams, Cobra Starship founder and frontman Gabe Saporta felt his mission was done and retired to private life. Although Cobra Starship has no plans of getting back together, the two newly unveiled "Tracks from the Future" continue his long-stated goal of bringing people together, getting them all emotional, and of course, making them dance.
