Hayden Panettiere is ready to work her vocal cords. She signed a deal with Hollywood Records before her Heroes TV show became a big hit and now she is ready to devote her time to working on a pop career.
Her new reggae-flavored song – Wake Up Call – has been written by Andreas ‘Quiz’ Romdhane and Josef Larossi, who have previously churned out hits for Halliwell, Diana Ross and Westlife.
She has also been working with U.S. fashion brand Candie’s, who will feature the track in a new summer ad campaign. The company will also pay for the star to shoot a video to accompany the tune.
The ad campaign will begin at the end of July, while the song will be released digitally Aug. 5. “Wake Up Call” will appear on Panettiere’s still-untitled debut album, which is slated for 2009.
