American Idol alums Kris Allen and Haley Reinhart join forces for an emotional cover of ‘Thunderclouds’

Two fan-favorite American Idol alums have joined forces! Season 8 winner Kris Allen and Season 10 3rd place finisher Haley Reinhart have recorded a lovely, delicate cover of the 2018 track “Thunderclouds.”

“When I decided to record ‘Thunderclouds,'” Kris wrote in a message to fans, “I only had 1 person in my head that I wanted to sing it with. There was no option 2. That’s why I’m happy Haley said yes,” Kris continued, “I am a huge fan of her and she makes this song more beautiful, haunting, and emotional than I ever could have imagined it was going to be.”

Kris writes, “‘Thunderclouds’ is out today and I think you’ll really enjoy it. It’s a great song by LSD (Labrinth, Sia, & Diplo) that we broke down to its bare bones, vocals and acoustic, and tried to capture the raw emotion of the lyrics.”

Haley took to social media to write, “When @kris_allen approached me to do this #lsd cover, I heard the first few chords ring out & I was IN. I hope you all fall into this moody lil’ storm of emotions with us & play it over n over again!”

The duo’s rendition is delicate, tender and haunting. Listen to the beautifully arranged cover of “Thunderclouds” from Kris Allen and Haley Reinhart below.
