Michael Slezak of EW has been listening to Kris Allen’s new single “Live Like We’re Dying” since Tuesday, and he floves it.
…the good folks at Jive sent a don’t-leak-under-threat-of-death link to one of my colleagues ‘â€ and Kris, who admitted to me during his Idol tour stop in Albany last month that he loves surprising people with his musical choices, shows a new and impressive level of vocal adroitness on the rapid-fire chorus, without missing an emotional beat in the process. Suddenly, the idea of the nation collectively rolling down its windows and chanting ‘You’ve only got eighty-six-four-hundred seconds in a day to/ Turn it all around or throw it all away/ Gotta tell ’em that we love ’em while we got the chance to say’ ¦’ seems not only plausible, but entirely likely.
The rest of us have had to settle for a 22 second clip, but fear not, we’ll all hear it soon. New York’s Z100 will be premiering the song on Monday, September 21, at 7:40 am ET.
I’ll get up early for that…
