Ashley Parker Angel’s Soundtrack to Your Life released today

Former O-Town member and Making the Band star Ashley Parker Angel takes the next step of his post-boy band life today when his solo record, Soundtrack to Your Life, hits stores.

The recording of the record was featured as part of There and Back, his solo MTV series. He’ll also join Teen People’s Rock N Shop Tour at four malls this summer, according to a press release. How does he feel about his newfound success? Ashley tells Teen People,

“There was a while there when the group broke up that I could be just a normal guy again. I could go to the mall. I grew my hair out long, and it was very rare that I got recognized. Now I’m kind of out there again. This has been such an incredible experience in my life to have this second chance to really show people what I’m about musically and as a person.”
