NEW YORK, Aug. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Brit teen pop sensation Cher Lloyd is putting the finishing flourishes on her highly anticipated debut, Sticks + Stones, which now has a new confirmed release date of October 2nd.  The perky perfectionist wanted to ensure that no details were missed on Sticks + Stones for her fanatical U.S. fans. The American version of Sticks + Stones, released via Epic Records/Syco, will vary slightly from the 2011 U.K. version, which debuted at #4 in the U.K. The US album includes never-before-heard songs, as well as a few surprise guests. Cher explains that Sticks + Stones is "like a jukebox! Lots of different sounds and no two songs sound the same. I've put a lot into the album."

Cher will make her second major U.S. TV appearance on the Today Show August 30th.  Her first was July 25th on "America's Got Talent," leading Perez Hilton to hail Cher's "insane talent, gorgeous voice" and "100 percent live performance!" Likewise, PopDust praised the stellar singer's "sparkly, assured U.S. TV debut."

Clearly, the pint-sized pop-star is winning over U.S. fans by the masses, as further proven by her afternoon of fan-packed mayhem during a recent visit to West Hollywood's Millions of Milkshakes. Police had to intervene as several thousand of Cher's beloved "Brats" mobbed the streets for a glimpse of the saucy teen singer.  (Take a look at the Brat Attack madness here: Cher's mouth-watering milkshake is made from Oreos, marshmallows, banana, and caramel sauce--topped with whipped cream and a cherry--and, in homage to her beloved fans, the sweet treat is called the Brat Attack.

For those who can't get enough from their new fave, Cher entertains more than two million Twitter followers who hang on her every word. And as Cher takes care to make sure every detail is perfect for the American release of Sticks + Stones in preparation for its October 2nd release, she gushes, "I can't wait for everyone to hear the songs in full."  Fortunately for her Brats, the wait is almost over!
