American Idol season 9 winner Lee DeWyze is set to release his first major-label album on November 16, 2010.
Lee DeWyze has been on tour all summer with the rest of the American Idol crew, but still managed to make time to write and record for his new album.
“I’ve written on every song. … I’m more or less looking forward to showing everybody what I do outside of the show and outside of this. To be able to be my own artist and do my own thing, I’m really looking forward to,” Lee DeWyze told MTV.
“I’ve been very fortunate to be able to collaborate with some amazing songwriters on new songs over the past three months,” says Lee. “I can’t wait for everyone to hear my debut album.”
DeWyze couldn’t reveal who he collaborated with on this album that has not been titled yet, but he hinted that the artists and songwriters he worked with were ones he’s listened to and is a fan of.
“What’s really most important about the album for me is keeping it true to what I want to do and the kind of music I like to make and having it be real, not just some words thrown together,” he said. “I like to write about love and relationships and emotions and feeling … being down and up. I like writing about things that everybody experiences and to be able to put that into my music … it’s going to be fun
