AceShowbiz - Kris Allen is hitting studio with British songwriter/producer Eg White, the same man who contributed to Adele and Duffy's albums. Breaking the news is the winner of "American Idol" season 8 himself on his Twitter by giving a riddle and inviting fans to guess it.
Kris Allen will release his first studio installment in U.S. on November 17. For the effort, he gets help from 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).
The first single from the album is called "Live Like We're Dying" and has been played on radios since September 21. It is a cover version of The Script's 2008 song which didn't make it to the band's debut album "The Script" but appeared in a b-side of their mini album "We Cry".
