Kris Allen – Ryan Seacrest

Ryan, your questions kinda sucked, and what was with the interruption to talk with fans waiting for Michael Jackson tickets?   And Kris, have some coffee before you interview! (When Ryan asked, he couldn’t remember what he wrote in a songwriting session last night Duh!)

Kris says the album is still untitled–the name will depend on the songs, which he’s still in the midst of writing.   (Ha. It’ll probably end up self-titled like most Idol albums).   According to Kris, the deadline to finish the album is October 15.

More interesting deets on the album come our way via twitter.   Last night from Kris @KrisAllen4Real:

Just hung with @jonathanforeman and mike Elizondo writing some sweet muzac. Both these guys are crazy talented.

Jonathan Foreman is from the Christian/crossover band, Switchfoot. Mike Elizondo has produced for Eminem and Dr. Dre, Fiona Apple, Alanis Morrisette, Maroon 5 and written with Carrie Underwood.

Alex Band, of The Calling, is still writing songs for Kris:

@Alex_Band: @KrisAllen4Real got some more songs coming your way man!

Also collaborating with Kris: Mat Kearney, Joe King of the Fray, Dan Wilson of Semisonic, Claude Kelly, David Hodges, Salaam Remi and Chris Daughtry. Soon, he’ll be heading to London to work with “Live Like We’re Dying” producers, Andrew Frampton and Steve Kipner.

Kris’s CD is set to be released November 17.
