TESSANNE Chin's long awaited album, Count on My Love, is to be released on June 24.

The album is her second full-length effort to date and follows In Between Words which was released independently in 2010 .

Chin, who won the fifth season of the American television talent show The Voice in December, worked with a number of well-known producers and songwriters on Count on My Love.

Producers include Jerry 'Wonda' Duplessis, Stargate, Shama 'Sak Pase' Joseph, Mark 'Exit' Goodchild, Shaun Pizzonia aka Sting International; and Dwayne 'Supa Dups' Chin-Quee.

Among the songwriters who contributed to the project are Autumn Rowe, Claude Kelly, AC Burrell, Ryan Tedder (of rock band OneRepublic fame), Rock City aka Planet VI, and legendary songwriter Diane Warren.

The first single, Tumbling Down, which was released in the wake of her The Voice win, failed to ignite radio and the charts. The track was written by Tedder.

The second single, Everything Reminds Me of You, was written by songwriting duo of brothers known as Rock City aka Planet VI. The US Virgin Islands natives (Timothy and Theron Thomas) have written songs for the likes of Rihanna (Man Down and Pour it Up), Justin Bieber (Runaway Love), Iyaz (Replay), Sean Kingston (Take You There), Jennifer Hudson (If this Isn't Love), Miley Cyrus (We Can't Stop)and R Kelly (Crazy Night) among others.

Chin debuted Everything Reminds Me of You during the Season 6 semi-final round of The Voice with a live performance on Tuesday.

The single was produced by Supa Dups. It was recorded at Inner Circle's Miami-based Circle House studios.

"It was an honour to work with Tessanne. She is such an amazing talent and humble soul. The experience was magical, and being able to share in it with a fellow Jamaican just made it that much sweeter," Supa Dups told the Jamaica Observer.

Count on My Love is to be released by Republic Records, a division of Universal Music Group. Works from Damian 'Jr Gong' Marley and the Marley-owned Tuff Gong International have been released internationally by Republic Records.

Among the more popular acts on the label's roster are Lorde, Taylor Swift, Drake, PSY, Ariana Grande and Kelly Rowland.
