Cody Simpson has seen his career soar, and as he’s readying his sophomore album, an autobiography is in the works and due later this year.

At the end of last week, news of Surfers Paradise broke, with the announcement revealing a July 16 release date. Nevertheless, that’s not the first taste fans have gotten of the Australian teen-pop singer’s sophomore effort. So far, first single “Pretty Brown Eyes” already dropped, while a video for song “Awake All Night” debuted on YouTube.

In a statement about the album, the pop star revealed he felt more confident recording this time around. Simpson told the press: "Surfers Paradise is basically the most famous area on the Gold Coast of Australia, where I am from. I think this album really represents that piece of me, my lifestyle, and where I come from. When making my first album Paradise, it was sort of a journey to find myself as a young adult and artist. With Surfers Paradise the entire process felt more natural and comfortable, like being back home. I wanted to share that feeling with my fans."

Fans wanting all the inside details about Simpson’s life outside of teen gossip magazines have to wait until fall, when his autobiography hits stores in October. Titled Welcome To Paradise: My Journey, the autobiography will come out on HarperCollins.

To support, Simpson will go on the road at the end of this month. His 36-date tour starts in Jacksonville, Fla.

To hear Simpson’s latest, here is “Awake All Night”:
