The latest American IdolÂ winner, Lee DeWyze announced last week that he would be releasing his new album.Â His major-label debut titled Live It Up is being released on November 16.Â Â To give fans a preview, Lee appeared on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show and debuted his first single titled, Sweet Serendipity.
The tune is being described as more polished than fans may be used to hearing from Lee.Â Critics are describing the song to be slicker and faster.Â Lee’s first two albums were released independently.Â Lee recorded his entire album while he was on the “American Idols Live” tour during the summer.Â He recently said about his album release, “I’m excited for all the people who supported me throughout ‘Idol’ to hear what I can do with my own songs.Â The album shows a whole different side of me, and I’m so proud of it.”
Is an entirely different side of Lee DeWyze what fans want to hear?Â After all, they voted him the American Idol winner based on his style during the show.Â It would not be the first time that an American Idol winner’s album sounds different than the style they exhibited on the show.Â Former American Idol winner Taylor Hicks admitted that he was not happy with the songs he was told to perform.
Perhaps Lee DeWyzeÂ will have better luck, as he worked with an array of big name producers including:Â Grammy winner Toby Gad, who has produced work for Selena Gomez, Alicia Keys and Kris Allen, John Shanks, who has produced work for Miley Cyrus and Bon Jovi, and the Norwegian production team Espionage, who has produced work for Beyonce and Train.Â Additionally, Lee DeWyze co-wrote most of his album.
