By Kevin Rutherford

Mariah Carey may not have ended up going all Beyoncé on us with her new album, but luckily we have Colbie Caillat to fill that void.

The pop singer-songwriter has released a brand new EP, Gypsy Heart Side A, without prior warning. The news was revealed on Live! With Kelly & Michael this morning (June 9).

Gypsy Heart Side A is now available via iTunes, with a single, “Try,” available as a free download via the service. An accompanying lyric video for the song, a collaboration with Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, will be available June 10, with cameos from Miranda Lambert, Sheryl Crow, Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott and more.

The five-track EP is the first half of the Gypsy Heart album coming later this year from Caillat.

Gypsy Heart will purportedly include the song “Hold On,” which was released earlier this year.

In an interview with earlier this year, Caillat said that OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder was instrumental in helping shape the sound of her new album.

“I flew to Miami where [Tedder] was on tour and we wrote ‘Hold On,’” she told “Once I heard the production and the direction that we went with on this song, it inspired me and everyone on my team of this new sound.”
