On March 10, American Idol champion Taylor Hicks releases his first single to his new album which is going to have a completely different sound than his freshman album did which was released shortly after his big American Idol Season 5 win. Taylor Hicks hopes that this single and album will make him more than just a one hit wonder or fleeting memory for fans.
The CD is titled “The Distance” and the single that is being released is titled “What’s Right Is Right”. American Idol admits that he didn’t take much part in the creation of his first post-American Idolalbum and explains how this one is going to be much different than what people heard before. “When I wrote this record, I really tried to put myself outside of the box and look into the project as a music fan. I tried to use that perspective as a measuring stick for my music. I think, on this particular record, my voice is a common thread, and my love for different styles of music is really apparent.”
We liked Taylor Hicks on the show but realize that he is one of those that sadly has been almost forgotten since winning American Idol. We really hope that this album does what it is supposed to do in making him once again a household name and shows what a great singer he really is.
