Kris Allen Shares A Recording Session Sneak Peek (VIDEO)


Kris Allen recently shared a sneak peak of studio time with his fans on instagram.

The American Idol season 8 winner is  working with award winning (The Civil Wars) producer, Charlie Peacock in Nashville, where the singer co-wrote most of the songs for the album.

“I thought I had good songs before,” Kris said about writing in Nashville, in an interview with USA Today, “but I spent a week here and wrote two songs a day, pretty much.”

“We’re trying to give Kris a different experience, experimenting, playing in the sandbox,” Peacock said of the recording process. “For right now, it’s just playing and seeing what you can come up with.”

Check out a few glimpses into Kris’s new songs below.  The third studio album is expected out later this year.

    Has he been signed to a new label or will this be self-released?

    I was very excited to check these out last night. Charlie tweeted a fan last night that the titles on the Whiteboard are actually titles of another artist’s project. But the snippets sound great, and I definitely heard Paul Simon in there which is awesome.

    no announcement has been made about that.yet.

    Excited to hear the snippets. The 3 songs sound pretty different from each other. Very happy to see they have recorded “Paul Simon” — that’s been a crowd pleaser at his live gigs

    I am so excited over album 3 and Kris looks so happy in the studio.Charlie Peacock seems like a perfect fit for him.From the snippets,it sounds like there will be a good variety and the Paul Simon song sounds fabulous.

    Whether he has a label or not is unknown,at least to me and it doesn’t concern me.I believe this album will be amazing and that is all i care about

  • Tinawina

    I really like Kris. I can’t wait to hear what he comes up with.

  • Miz

    I am so excited about this album. I can’t wait for his February concerts to start since he said he’ll be performing some of the new stuff.

    Every little bit of information we get from either Kris, Charlie or someone working with Kris gets me more excited to hear this new album.

    Always nice to see his cute face, but it’s impossible to tell much from that.

  • Anna106

    Very excited for new music from this talented guy!

  • mtlfan2

    It’s exciting to hear some snippets!!
    Love that bit of percussion on Paul Simon!

  • Happyhexer

    Hard to tell much from these snippets, but on that one song, Kris’ voice sounded pretty good. Am I the only person who thinks his voice has improved since Idol? (I didn’t like him then.) In any event, I am looking forward to album #3, and definitely will check it out.

    It probably has a little.Kris has said he works hard to improve all his skills and he thinks his voice has improved,but i think most idols sound better off the show.The sound isn’t great on idol and they are under so much pressure.He sounds great on his Idol studio recordings and pre idol cd.His voice sounds beautiful live and his producer wrote that he is his new favorite vocalist and he is a pleasure to record and i don’t think Charlie Peacock would say that if he didn’t mean it.
