Clay Aiken has been a busy boy. While in New York City, appearing in the broadway production of Monty Python’s Spamalot, Clay has had a new album on his mind.
Okay, more than just on his mind. He’s actually been busy laying tracks for his new album when not on the Broadway stage.
The album, which isAiken’s fourth, will not be, “going down any path that’s crazy,”he told Peoplein a recent interview. “I’m not trying to be cool. I’m not trying to be hip. I’m not trying to do anything other than sing stuff that I’m good at,” he adds.
Aiken has tried to theme the album around the self-awareness and learning that tends to happen to people as they grow through their young adulthood.
Though he jokes that he could use his red Spamalot wig for a new image to go along with the album release, Aiken warns that this musical go-round of his will come with no new crazy styles, such as the dark and messy style he’s been known to sport in the past. This time, it seems, it’s all about Clay staying true to Clay.
Aiken was American Idol’s season two runner-up, losing to Ruben Studdard.
A definite release date for the album has not yet been set; however, Aiken hopes for a May 6 release.
