Allison Iraheta – Friday I’ll Be Over U – First Listen!

AOL’s Pop Eater debut’s Allison Iraheta’s new single, “Friday I’ll Be Over U”.

The song is produced by Max Martin, the hitmaker behind song from Kelly Clarkson (“Since U Been Gone”), Pink (“So What”) and Katy Perry (“I Kissed a Girl”)

Allison says, “It’s a song everyone can relate to. It’s a pretty simple song. It ain’t too hard to understand. I think people will really just be like ‘Yeah!’ … hopefully.”

The tune opens with a simple Kinks-like guitar riff, giving way in the chorus to some 80’s-like electronica–a cool meld of old school sounds.

Allison’s husky alto is front and center here. I’m relieved her vocals weren’t pro-tooled into oblivion.  Teen-friendly pop/rock is exactly what I was expecting from Allison right out of the gate.

Producer Max Martin knows how to keep it simple and memorable. Good luck Allison, I hope it’s a hit!

Update: Warning: The song cuts off abruptly at the end–probably to keep fans from ripping mp3s instead of downloading the single. The entire song is posted now.
