Kris Allen headed to London on Sunday to record more tracks for his upcoming album, Due to hit stores on November 17.
Today Kris twittered hints about a mystery collaborator, and invited his fans to guess who it could be:
@KrisAllen4Real: riddle to see who im working with: breakfast food. thats all you get.
Ha ha. Turns out the mystery collaborator is Eg White (get it? hee), who has co-writes on albums by Adele and Duffy. His co-writes include the Grammy nominated hit single “Chasing Pavements” from Adele, plus, “Delayed Devotion” and “Hanging On Too Long” on Duffy’s debut Rockferry. White also wrote songs for Will Young (winner of Pop Idol) and Natalie Imbruglia.
Kris told MTV that he would be working with producers, Andrew Frampton and Steve Kipner while he was in London. Frampton and Kipner co-wrote Kris’s latest single, “Live Like We’re Dying” and “Written All Over Your Face” another song from the album.
Currently, “Live Like We’re Dying” is #34 on the iTunes overall songs chart, up from its mid-60s position over the weekend. The song’s Friday release was a little unusual, but today, iTunes has it listed in their “What’s Hot” section. The little bit of publicity is helping to drive the song up the charts.
I hope it does well. Cover, scmover, I think it’s a good song.
