AceShowbiz - Allison Iraheta has spilled the beans on who will make contribution to her upcoming debut album. To MTV, the singer who finished fourth in "American Idol" season 8 confirmed she has "Let It Rock" hitmaker Kevin Rudolf as her collaborator.
Allison also mentioned David Hodges, the ex-member of Evanescence, as another person who will help her finishing the record. Beside naming the featured guests in the album, she also revealed about what kind of sounds she will be crafting for this studio project. "Rock, definitely," she said. "It's something I've always wanted to do. It's what I've grown up on."
As for what she avoids in the album, Allison shared, "I definitely don't want to be singing about, 'My boyfriend, yeah! He loves me!'." Instead, she wants the album to be "[leaning] towards the reality of life, the crazy stuff that's happened to [her] in the past that people can relate to."
Allison Iraheta has been signed to 19 Recordings. Her debut album is licensed to Jive Records and due to be released this fall, when her Idol pals Kris Allen and Adam Lambert will also drop their post-Idol efforts.
In the meantime, Allison is touring with the nine other former contestants of Idol. The roadshow has been kicked off at Rose Garden in Portland on July 5, and will be wrapped up at Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester on September 15.
