The digital album will be available for purchase on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Google Play, Amazon and Tidal.

Select tracks will also be available on the leading streaming sites, including Pandora, Deezer, Tidal, YouTube Music, Microsoft Groove, ClaroMúsica, Saavn and MediaNet.For fans who want to see him in-person, Esparza will kick-off his “Bad Decisions” tour on Dec. 8 where he will explore his past tough decisions with comedic flare.
