What better time for an American Idol alum to premiere new music than during farewell season premiere week? Season 9 winner, Lee DeWyze, is getting ready to drop his next album, Oil & Water on February 12.
But until the full record is out, here is the majestic “Stone,” a song for you to enjoy in the meantime. The tune will be an instant download when the Shanachie Entertainment release becomes available on iTunes. The record, along with behind the scenes goodies and merchandise is also available with the purchase of an All Access Pass at Pledgemusic.
Make sure to look out for Lee when he returns to American Idol! The singer lent a hand during the San Francisco auditions, helping the producers choose hopefuls during the cattle call, while also providing encouragement and moral support to the would-be contestants.
