Kris Allen's new single titled "Live Like We're Dying" has got a preview which features chorus of the song. The winner of "American Idol" season 8 confirmed on Twitter that the track will be debuted full on radio Z100 Monday, September 21 at 7:40 A.M.

A cover version of The Script's 2008 song of the same name, "Live Like We're Dying" is confirmed to be the first single from Kris' not-yet-titled debut album. The song didn't make it to The Script's debut album "The Script" but appeared in a b-side of their mini album "We Cry".

Kris Allen will release the album in U.S. on November 17. He works with The Calling's vocalist, Alex Band and will enter studio with Kevin Rudolf in October. He is also said to work with The Fray's guitarist Joe King and acclaimed producers Salaam Remi (Nas, Amy Winehouse) and Claude Kelly (Leona Lewis, Akon).

I don't care what the freakin' creeps here are saying. I love the song and Kris's style, still waiting for his album. We already have a copy of his single and loving it so much.

Lola give it up. You're not a Kris and never were. You are a Glambert because no Kris fan would ever write that stupid remark. So give it up you liar. I love Kris's song.

Sound like much same. I don't know what is difference. But Kris's version make me excited more. Maybe are clearly and active. Good for Kris.

I wouldn't plunk down a penny for this garbage. It's a big slap in the face to those of us who voted hundreds & hundreds of times to get this guy where he is. He has squandered all of that away. No substance, just small talk. Go away Kris Allen. Your services are no longer needed here.

well its no different from the script's version and Danny from the script has a nicer sound in his voice when he sings it, so i have to say im disapointed.

This is a great song for Kris. A very catchy upbeat single that has a great hook to it . He will be doing The Script a favour as he will make the band known in the US[ they are well known in Australia & Europe] when this song becomes a hit!! First singles of Idol winners are usually covers as the single comes out just after they finish the tour , so there's no time to do an original. Don't worry there's more time for the rest of the album & Kris is working with some great artists so the whole album will be great!! For now though there seem to be mostly positive comments from critics who do have the whole song!!

OMG good on you, Kris Allen. :) This actually sound really amazing. This has made my mind up...I will definately purchasing Kris' album as well as Adam's...and Allison Iraheta's too. I'm sorry to all who think Glamberts are transparent. I will always love Adam more than the other two...but, well, I actually have a bit of a soft spot for Kris :)plus Allison rocks as well :) Listen guys...sorry for all those who think us Glamberts are still bitter and resentful. There are some that are, but the majority of us are decent people who just love Adam and the majority of us do like Kris too... :) Great Job Kris :) LucyXX (The crazy cousin in the Glamily)

Kris did a much better job on "ALL THESE THINGS THAT I'VE DONE" on the tour ... much better song for him ... but this is only one song ... wait till the album is released and see what else is on it ... IMO

Love it - can't wait to hear the whole song. This is definitely Kris...would recognize those smooth tones anywhere...

Such a shame. Good song but why a cover?
posted by Huh? on Sep 18, 2009
I like it, but why if someone does not --must the thread turn into, "I see the Glamberts are here"? That's lame. Not everybody is going to love LLWD. That's okay. No need to fan the flames of a fan war. Just sayyyyin'

reminds me of the script, but not as good (original) as them
posted by AI fan on Sep 18, 2009
I am just a fan of AI show, not glabert or kris fan. But I have to say this song sucks! Kris did way much better during the show, and isn't he going to release sth written by hinself?
posted by Krissy on Sep 18, 2009
Ouch! I wonder why Kris has to sing that song when it is not his original. What happened to his songwriters?
posted by KADH on Sep 18, 2009
Not the kind of tune I have been waiting for as it sounds too common and not really special but I'll purchase one for my collection.
posted by BooBooKitty on Sep 18, 2009
I love it. I can't wait to hear the whole song.

this isnt even kris singing this....the song is originally by the script.... they just took the snippet from their song listen to it on youtube

I would love to hear the whole song. I love it. I see the Glamberts are here. Adam and Kris are friends and they still are upset? They are sad. They should be happy for Kris who is Adam's friend.
