Trivia

  • BigTimeRushTv.com: "With Big Time Rush finishing up their 3rd album on the road, new music details are starting to surface. Two songs have hit the internet (She Drives and Words Mean Nothing) in the past couple of months creating a lot of talk about the possible release of a 2012 album. Adding to the anticipating, the ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) added “Blink” to BTR’s profile this week. The song was originally recorded by UK duo, UVUK. None of the songs have been confirmed for the 3rd album. This is all speculation, but it doesn’t hurt to get a little excited!"
  • Intermission isn't part of this album. The reasons are:
  1. Intermission was a track for Elevate.
  2. Intermission has been leaked on the Internet.One of the reason it was remove from Elevate and may have been replaced by Time of Our Life)
  • Superstar has been released on Elevate. There's a rumor that there is a possible version with Pitbull but neither artists have said anything about it.
  • She Drives will not be part of the 3rd album but was supposed to be released in February 2013. The song will be available for download on Nicholas "RAS" Furlong's Facebook. [23]
  • Windows Down was supposed to be the first single for the third album but it was changed and was integrated on the album Elevate instead. Logan, Carlos and Kendall revealed it won't be on the third album in an interview on The David Show [24].
  • Kendall Schmidt wrote more songs than James Maslow, Carlos Pena Jr. and Logan Henderson, making him the one most involved in the songwriting process.
  • On April 20, 2013, an unfinished version of the album was leaked online. Confetti Falling, Picture This and We Are, were the only ones not changed before the album was released.
  • The album was released in Germany three days before the US release.
