Amazon.com has a listing for a new Phillip Phillips single set to be released on November 6 Where We Came From.  We don’t have any other confirmed information about the song, but as soon as we do we’ll post the information here.

    Looking forward to it….hope it is really good.  Wonder if this new release is more Phillip on AI or is it one of the songs with the ‘Home’ feel?  I am betting the latter…too much momentum with ‘Home’ at this point to get off that train.

    I found an ASCAP entry for the song – it was written by Phillip and Jonathan Ian Green. 

    I wonder if iTunes will have a free download with the pre-order starting on Tuesday – actually I’m surprised that the album pre-order isn’t already up on iTunes.

    rumor has it that Drake will be featured on the second version of this song. It’s  an odd pairing but kudos to Interscope and management that they were able to grab Drake. I’m really curious what it will sound like  http://www.rickey.org/phillip-phillips-where-we-came-from-new-single/

    Hmm the cover pic makes Phillip look older …

    Wow! He looks pretty much identical to young Dave Matthews.

  • TheOther

    With Drake, I suspect the song is more in the vein of Nice and Slow, U Got It Bad.  The later for which Phillip received a Standing O on Idol.  It will be interesting to see how the marketing is handled, since Home is still doing gang busters.

    As I said, the odds of them picking a tune that Phillip wrote was high, since there was only one other song on the CD that he did not write.

     “Wow! He looks pretty much identical to young Dave Matthews.”

    Whoo, he sure as heck does! Wonder whether that means they’re really going for a Matthews-type vibe in most of the songs on the album, too. Very curious to find out.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    At Amazon, the song is listed as “country”. lol

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Well, it’s P2 alright. lol I’m sure that his fans will love it.

    3 songs – written by others
    4 songs – P2 solo written
    4 songs – P2 co-written

    Strong bouquet of Dave Matthews, with undertones of John Mayer and an occasional piquant whiff of Mumford & Sons. 

    I give props to Interscope for coming up with an album that seems to represent P2′s authentic sound (to the extent we’ve ever been told what it is) and for choosing a next single that he has writing credit on.

    Hmm, “Gone, Gone, Gone” sounds like a perfect follow-up to “Home” so they pick a really bland song that sounds like Sweet Serendipity.  OK, then.

    Don’t know if this is the right thread to post this, but “Home” is on the latest Tim Hortons commercial here in Canada.

  • justmefornow

    Those snippets sound very P2. But after a while they all blend together and sound the same to me. Kind of what you would expect from him, though.
    I think his fans will be satisfied, but I found it all rather boring. It’s just not my taste in music. However, I wish him luck with it.

  • Incipit

     we’re so far off my musical tastes that I’d have to do homework to have an opinion…

    That covers it, Eilonwy, and I’m not interested enough to work that hard.

    I had read that “Drive Me” was the song Phillip was wishing to use for his Coronary – but that turns out to be a song about going to bars and nightclubs searching for a good-looking lady, so maybe not.

    The other one I was curious about was the Calgon song – but that’s a bonus, not included here.

    I’m sure it’s all on key, through the wonders of studio toys, and will appeal to the portion of the public who like this kind of sound.

    I wish him luck with it…that’s all I’ve got.

    Not a bad album for a quick release-very Philip!!!

    My question is….how did Jimmy get Drake on the song? Did he meet P2 or was it a call and like “Can you rap on a part of a song for the American Idol winner’ debut?”

  • fuzzywuzzy

    “Those snippets sound very P2. But after a while they all blend together
    and sound the same to me. Kind of what you would expect from him,
    though.”

    I agree. P2 does have a distinctive sound to his singing which helps to make the album pretty cohesive.

    “I think his fans will be satisfied, but I found it all rather boring. It’s just not my taste in music.”

    I agree. It’s not my taste either, but I suspect that P2′s fans will like it. No surprises here though IMO.

  • IrisandLilies

    A lot of artists put out albums that have songs that arguably “blend together” and sound very similar.  It’s called having a musical identity.  Phillip is not unique in that regard. 

  • girlygirltoo

    After listening to the snippets, this is not what I would have picked as the 2nd single. 

  • girlygirltoo

    Drake is signed to UMG — I would bet the label asked him to do this.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I disagree. Artists who have a musical identity do not necessarily have songs that all blend together.

    He is definitely a looker. Smouldering eyes. :)

  • durbesque

    I took WWCF out of the maze and listened to it a few times.  If a PP writing credit was the consideration, I can hear why they picked this song.  It actually has a good enough chorus to qualify as a hook….and I love hooks.  I’m happy with the choice.     

  • rodolfochengcanepa

    OFF: After hear the snippets, how P2 hit the notes on “Hold On” hahaha. That will be very interesting to hear and watch live.

  • Kitty Armistead

    I’m confused.  I haven’t seen anything about Drake being on this song, so where’s that coming from? 

    P.S. Incipit, “the Calgon song” was quite possibly the funniest thing I’ve read today.

  • sdmama

    It looks like we like Gone Gone Gone the most in this blog-sphere. So, naturally, that is not going to be the next single.  Aaarrrggg… But, Home still going strong on radio (finally) does he really need a new single? 

    I imagine Home will keep pulling for a while.  By the time Home starts waning, they can release Gone Gone Gone as third single? 

    I don’t know, but I have never seen any other Idol winners so lucky with timing of things. And it is despite of his kidney operation that put everything on hold for a while.  I am prepared to be surprised again by P2.

    The upcoming holidays weird out the schedule a little, but I think Interscope’s plan is to send WWCF to HAC and AAA radio when — or right after — Home peaks on those formats, so that it’s rising as Home falls.

    How that affects CHR, where the song could keep rising for months (following the pattern of Gavin DeGraw’s NOY, which peaked on CHR 2-3 months after its #1 on HAC)… well, the second single for GDG didn’t go to radio until NOY had peaked across all formats (and then it tanked, so bad idea). I think Interscope is going to time radio adds of WWCF to follow the HAC peak of Home and figure they’ll have to cross it to CHR if they can, as it doesn’t sound at all like a native-CHR song.

  • TheOther

    I think Gone, Gone, Gone will be released as a single at some point.  It is very catchy, radio friendly.  But lyrically, Where We Came From is a stronger song.  I think it will be a marketing coupe to have Drake on it.  I love the contradiction.  Drake has done other things besides hip hop, r&b.
