American Idol season 8 champ Kris Allen is slated to drop his debut album on November 17, the singer announced to fans via his Twitter account last night. Allen told EW.com in an exclusive interview last week that he’s been writing with collaborators during down days on the current American Idols Live tour, and that he recently worked with tunesmiths Lindy Robbins and Toby Gad. Other confirmed Allen collaborators so far include The Fray’s Joe King, Christian recording artist Mat Kearney, and producers Salaam Remi and Claude Kelly.[ewbrightcove “34830068001”, “34835372001”, “525”, “470”]

    • BlackSunshine

  • Austin

    A collab with Mat Kearney? Fo realz?! That is so freaking awesome. It’s a great match.

  • Coral

    I can’t wait for this album to come out. I haven’t been big on Idol albums in the past, but with Kris it’s different, because he seems to really have a defined style, and I love his talent for creating melodies, so I think that this debut album will probably be better than some of the previous debut albums from former AI contestants.

    I am so excited about the release of Kris Allen’s debut album on Nov. 17. I just placed my orders and what a nice present to give to my friends and relatives this X’mas.I know that they will enjoy Kris soulful voice. Thank you Michael for the interview at Albany. It’s worth watching and seeing both of you enjoying each other on questions and answers.

    i have never bought a cd in 19 years of my life,i usually just download them illegally…. but i think i’m actually going to go out and buy his. :)

    • Paul, NJ

      I don’t buy many full CDs, just purchase particular songs, but do buy CDs of artists I want to support. This’ll be one of those.

  • Tina

    What you trying to beat Adam’s CD debut? I hear his is coming out Nov 19. Funny “The Idol Winner by default” has to come out 2 days before.

    • dru

      Tina, darling, there’s NO WAY the runner-up’s CD is coming on Nov 19. That’s a Thursday, not a Tuesday. CDs come out on Tuesdays.

    • Vada

      Tina, talking about music, when you know nothing about it, doesn’t put you in the best light.
      Albums are always released on Tuesdays in the U.S.

      • wakeforce

        Wrong! Whitney’s album is coming out Monday, Jay-z’s is coming out September 11, A Friday and I believe someone else (maybe U2) relesesed theirs on a differnt day, not Tuesday

    • hmm…

      Albums DO usually come out on Tuesdays, but I suppose there are exceptions…I haven’t heard anything about Adam’s album. Pretty sure it’ll come out around the same time. Probably not two days after, though.

    • sam

      You’re not killing my buzz, honey, no matter how hard you try. GO KRIS!!!! WOOOOOT!!!

      • michael bruce

        Kris Allen will be just as effective as Taylor Hicks.

      • me

        I disagree.

    • wm

      tina: get over yourself. Honestly…do your childish remarks make you feel better? Why are you watching a Kris interview if you are only waiting for the CD which is the GOD of music that you think is Adam? I like Adam but not everyone is as obsessed about him as you are.

      • Tina

        Awwwwwwwwww the true colors of Kris’s fans come out! LOL. So funny that some of you Kris fans put down Adam’s fans, yet when an Adam fan says anything, well there you are being just as igornant as you say Adam’s fan are. Don’t put down someone just because they have an opinion. And don’t think your any better than Adam fans. Because alot of YOU just proved YOUR NOT! I can go on any site on the internet that I please, there is no law says I can’t. So stop trying to bully me and get a life you losers!!!

  • Antonio K

    I wont waste my money on this dude

    • Vada

      But, you had no problem wasting your time on a diss.

    • wm

      Why are you watching his interview? Are you afraid that it’s not always about Adam? Both Adam and Kris couldn’t give a shit about you.

      • Tina

        @Vada and WM, you know anyone can come on any site and put their opinion. That is a our right, you know Free Speech? Just like you say not everyone likes Adam, WELL not everyone likes Kris. I have seen fans of Kris go on Adam’s site and say negative things there all the time. So why can’t anyone come on here and do that if that is what they want to do? None of you are any better than anybody else. Kris’s fans are not better than Adam’s fans. So stop thinking you are!

  • James

    Yeah count me as another not bothering to waste my money. Best of luck to those who actually enjoy this.

    • wm

      You’re funny…why are you watching this Kris interview if you don’t care about him? I think maybe you’re a little insecure.

  • crispy

    The Fray? Vomit!

  • walker

    hope the song he did with Mat ends up in the album (whatever that is)! They’re both amazing!=)

  • tvtam

    this is old news. i posted this on twitter like 3 days ago.

  • Adam Fan

    We want Adam, when is his album going to drop?

    • fan

      Are you sure you’re an Adam fan? Because you only wrote one sentence. Usually they go on for paragraphs about how there’s no one on the planet to compare to his brilliance. Nice display of self-restraint.

      • Ben

        Fan, you hit the nail right on the head! Adam is talented and all, but his fans are annoying as hell!

      • me

        Ha Ha! You are so right fan! I wonder if they know how annoying that seems to the rest of us. I liked Adam too and all, but his fans are way OTT!

      • Kayla

        That is so accurate, fan. I like Adam but his fans annoy the crap out of me.

      • wm

        That’s funny and soooo’ true!!!

      • Matt

        I am a Kris fan, but I have been viewing on how some of you are not being the classy Kris fan. Ex. Wm, Vada, me, Kayla. Just ignore those fans of Adam’s you think are annoying. By the remarks you are making about Adam’s fans shows that some of you have no class. Not everyone fan of Adam’s is OTT, my wife loves Adam, I like Kris, but she is in no way annoying or OTT. Show some restraint and don’t let the comments of others influence to act negative.

  • Kat

    I love Kris Allen. I’m actually really excited to hear this album. There are few artists I get this excited about. I hope I’m not disappointed. I’ll gladly check out Adam and Allison’s too, when they come out. I don’t discriminate; they’re all talented.

    • me

      great attitude! More people should adopt your attitude.

  • josh

    I’ll be buying this, can’t wait. KRIS ROCKS.

  • darla

    I’m looking forward to this album, being a huge fan of Kris Allen. I love him so much, he’s the best artist and a wonderful guy, too. And hilarious. And cute. And sexy. Haha.

    • wm

      You got that right darla!
