HAILEE STEINFELD first captured the hearts of viewers with her breakout turn as Mattie Ross in the COEN BROTHERS' "True Grit," as a 14-year-old, garnering an ACADEMY AWARD nomination for “Best Supporting Actress” and a SCREEN ACTORS GUILD nom for “Outstanding Performance By A Female Actor In A Supporting Role” as well as a BAFTA nomination in the category of “Best Actress In A Leading Role.” She went on to star in the 2013 sci-fi epic "Ender’s Game," as well as "Romeo And Juliet," "Three Days To Kill," and "Begin Again." HAILEE will release the first single from the album later this year.
