It’s a special edition of The Next Big Thing! While we already gave you your weekly dose of fresh talent, we just had to talk to you about The Ready Set‘s Jordan Witzigreuter because… he has a brand-spanking-new studio album out rightthissecond!

The 24-year-old’s The Bad & The Better CD just dropped yesterday, and we are all. Over. It.
Not only does it feature The Ready Set frontman, but it was produced by Ian Kirkpatrick (who also produced tunes for Neon Trees, The Plain White T’s, Young the Giant and Breathe Carolina. NBD). Jordan and his band will be hitting the road this summer on the entire Warped tour, but until that happens, why not get to know a little more about him first? Here are ten things you didn’t know about The Ready Set, straight from Jordan himself. (Thanks, Razor and Tie!)

On his musical inspirations:

"My biggest influences are bands like Copeland, Mae, Saves The Day, and tons of others. I was really into those bands when I started writing songs! Now I like to keep my ears open to everything. Anything can inspire me!"

On his current celebrity crush:
