The battle continues. After previously duel to win the "American Idol" title, Ruben Studdard and Clay Aiken are now facing one another again as their new albums arrive in U.S. stores this fall.
It is said that Aiken will release his new set, titled "A Thousand Different Ways" on September 19th, whereas Studdard will drop his third major release "The Return of the Velvet Teddy Bear" one week after.
"This is an album of love songs, but they are about all different kinds of love. Romantic love, friendship, unconditional love," Aiken said of his album. "There are 1,000 different kinds of love; 1,000 different ways to tell someone you love them."
As for Studdard he explains his title choice, saying "With The Return, I'm letting all the people who've followed me from American Idol until now know that basically I'm back."
