Yeah, my pals from Team Plaid have the inside scoop on Blake Lewis’ upcoming cd “Audio Day Dream.” Read all about it…
A few tidbits:
- There will be 9 interludes throughout the album to fit the A.D.D. theme (and dont expect just beatboxing!). Three of the interludes get their own track numbers (1, 12, 16). The others are hidden, but you can find the names of them in the CD booklet. They were recorded live by Blake band.
- iTunes will have an exclusive track that Blake did with S*A*M and Sluggo in New York called …Human.
- WalMart will have exclusive bonus DVD footage.
- Clive Davis has taken Executive Producer credit.

Also, here’s a recent interview with Blake from MTV. Check it out for a preview of the video for “Break Anotha'”.
According to the beatboxing bottle blond, the disc will contain a new sound ‘ one none of us has ever heard before, maybe.
“It’s my new genre I made up, ” the singer, who was heavily influenced by 1980s pop, proudly told MTV News during a recent interview. “I call it 2080, because it’s a mix of all the great pop music that’s inspired me.”
raises eyebrows… Oh rilly? Hold on there, cowboy. Heh.
Lewis, who said he hopes to tour in January, also had some words of wisdom to impart on the next crop of “American Idol” wannabes. “The producers won’t like it, but my advice is be yourself, ” he said. “Don’t listen to anything they have to say, unless it’s going to help you in a certain way. And look at the camera. You are reaching the people at home, so look in the camera or you won’t visually reach anyone.”
Tour in January…good stuff.
