More on the continuing saga of Clay Aiken and his record label, Decca.
Shirley Halperin of the Hollywood Reporter obtained a statement from Clay and a Decca rep about the Idol alum’s future with the label that released his last album, Tried & True, last summer.
According to THR, Clay was “cagey” about the possibility of a second project with Universal’s Decca Records.
“There is no upcoming album planned at this time,” Clay told The Hollywood Reporter. “I am focusing on my live show and heading out on tour this week for the next few months. The truth is, I have no desire to get back into the studio any time soon.”
A rep for Decca was also vague, saying only that she “didn’t know of any plans at this time to release a future album with Clay.”
THR notes that Clay could have a “one-off” deal with Decca, a “common contractual arrangement in which an artist renegotiates with a label on an album-to-album basis.”
“There has never been a long-term label deal in place,” Clay said, “but when there is new album to discuss, I will discuss it with the label.”
