Part 2 of Lyndsey Parker’s interview with Kris Allen is up!
“Let the Rain”, a song Kris co-wrote with Tobias Karlsson, is about some of the frustrations he experienced during the album process. “You have to compromise, artists and labels don’t always see eye to eye, ” says Kris
Kris also talks about how he got “Red Guitar” on the album. He wrote it a year and a half ago after he bought his wife a red guitar (she never plays it!). He pitched a rough cut to management. He pitched it to Fray producer Mike Flynn who, loved it. Kris is super-proud of the results.
Lyndsey and Kris discuss the 4 songs she didn’t get to listen to.
“Is it Over” (Kris co-wrote with a friend, Mike Elizondo produced, “Alright With Me” (Kris and Joe King from the Fray), “Lifetime” (Kris, Mike Elizondo and John Foreman from Switchfoot), “I Need to Know” (Kris, Toby Gad & Lindsey Robbins).
“I Need to Know” came out in 30 minutes, he was laying on his back with the mic turned up at 2 or 3 in the morning.
Plus, Kris comments on the new songs from Allison and Adam (he loves them, of course).
