This has been quite the year on the music front for “Big Time Rush” alum Logan Henderson, who released his debut solo single “Sleepwalker” at the start of the year before following it up with “Bite My Tongue” in September and his Halloween-themed track “Speak of the Devil.”

These new songs are his re-entrance into the entertainment world after breaking into it in 2009 when his hit Nickelodeon series “Big Time Rush” began. The series, which also starred Kendall Schmidt, James Maslow and Carolos PenaVega, followed four Minnesota teens as they moved to Hollywood to begin their new lives as an up-and-coming boyband. The show ran from 2009 until 2013, spawning a few one-hour specials, multiple albums and several tours.

Since the show’s end and the band’s hiatus, the actor-singer has been focusing mainly on the musical aspect of the arts world, really honing in on what he wanted to say and how he wanted his solo projects to sound.

International Business Times caught up with the star on the HALO Awards orange carpet Saturday to find out more about the new solo music path he’s heading down, as well as his thoughts on Big Time Rush reuniting in the future.

The 28-year-old’s focused on getting out singles right now, instead of an EP or album, but shared that there’s quite a bit of new music on the way.

“There’s no rhyme or reason at the moment,” he said of how he’s releasing music. “We just want to put out good work, and it kind of comes at its own time. But there’s a lot of music that I haven’t released, so we’re going to do that and see how it goes.”

Though the singer was able to have a hand in the songwriting process of the second and third Big Time Rush albums, which “kind of inspired” him to do what he’s doing now, his solo process is much different.

“Relationships have been a big part of it,” he said of his inspiration. “Traveling has been a big part and talking with people. Making connections and kind of just discovering more about myself.”

Without having to think about the rules of writing songs for a Nickelodeon boy band, Henderson said that his whole musical progression has been “much more free.”

“I don’t have any rules and I can kind of do whatever I want,” he told IBT. “And that’s been pretty much the best.”

The singer is starting to think about heading out on tour to play the new music, which he said should happen next year. “We’re gonna really kind of jam it out and have some really intimate performances and have some true fans show up for these first few rounds,” he said.

The true fans he’s referring to, of course, are the ones who have been with him since the beginning, since his first days on “Big Time Rush.”

While he’s only writing for himself right now and is focused on his own music, he said that he wouldn’t count out an eventual Big Time Rush reunion. “If we come back at some point, I’m sure it will be pretty cool, but I think we’re very focused on our own projects,” he shared.

Fans hoping for a “Big Time Rush” TV reunion shouldn’t get too excited, though, because Henderson said that while he thinks it “would be funny as hell” and “crazy” to have the boys, who have “all gotten older,” reunite for a show, he’d prefer to do a concert reunion.

“I think it would be cooler to do, like, one concert,” he said. “Just do like one last hoorah-type thing. But, we’ll see.”

A “Big Time Rush” TV show or movie reunion might be a long-shot, especially since Henderson revealed he has not talked “to the guys in a long time,” but the star would “absolutely” want to get back into acting, though music is his main focus right now.

Which shows, if offered a guest-starring role, could get him to jump back into the acting world sooner than he thought? “Westworld” or “Stranger Things,” of course.

Luckily, while acting and a Big Time Rush reunion are on the backburner, fans have plenty of new solo music from Henderson to look forward to and enjoy.

Henderson’s latest single “Speak of the Devil” is now available, and the HALO Awards air on Nickelodeon Sunday, Nov. 26 at 7 p.m. EST.
