In addition to all, "Taylor Hicks" also includes songs "Soul Thing" and "The Deal", both written by Hicks and released on his second independent album, "Under the Radar," before he auditioned for American Idol.

"It's my take on modern soul music. My album takes pieces of what I learned from Ray (Charles) and from what I hear in today's music. I like some John Legend, Ambulance LTD. I like some of the modern beats of Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake. I like some John Legend. My musical sensibility goes way beyond the two minutes of Idol," Hicks told People.
