Leo Rising (2016) is the second studio album from pop duo, Karmin, set to be released on September 9, 2016. five singles were released including "Sugar", "Along the Road", "Didn't Know You, "Come With Me (Pure Imagination)", and "Blame It On My Heart".
Following the commercial failure of their debut effort, Pulses, Karmin decided to part ways from Epic Records. Karmin released the lead single from Leo Rising on October 8, 2014, "Sugar". The Karmin project was then known as 100 until it was confirmed the album would be called Leo Rising. For Billboard, Amy Heidemann says: "We never really had the opportunity to try and do anything alone, just the two of us. Nick is producing now, so it's a hundred percent Karmin, there's no denying that, and I think it's long overdue," while Nick Noonan says "We developed amazing relationships that we would not have today without them, they gave us the radio start. But we just felt it was a different thing [musically] from what they thought it was." "We were hungry to try a more musically honest approach. We wanted to be a little bit nerdier than we think they had hoped," Heidemann adds. The album concept involves astrology and zodiac signs; each song on the album is assigned to a sign. The album will be released September 9, 2016 along with a deluxe edition.
