The album will be released on November 9 and distributed through WuLi’s new distribution partner, Universal Music Group/Fontana.
Lee’s post-Idol debut, Live it Up, will be released one week later, on November 16 by RCA/Sony Music. Of course, it’s not a stretch to assume that WuLi is hoping to hop on the publicity surrounding Lee’s major label release. And kinda ironic that Idol’s new distribution partner, Universal, will be distributing a release that could compete with Lee’s new music.
Check out the press release after the jump. Notice how WuLi emphasizes that Lee had “complete artistic freedom” on So I’m Told and his second album Slumberland (which will be re-released through Universal on October 25).
For good measure, a remixed and remastered version of “Beautiful People” will be released on the Live it Up release day, November 16.
Read the Press Release after the JUMP…
Lee DeWyze’s first album, “So I’m Told” has been digitally re-mixed and re-mastered. It even includes updated versions of some of your favorite songs and is scheduled to be available November 9, 2010.
For the record, Lee wrote ALL of the songs on “So I’m Told” before he even turned 21 years old. The album was under produced and you, the loyal Fan, deserve a more polished version like the critically acclaimed “Slumberland”.
BEFORE Lee became a huge superstar and gained international stardom, he had 100% artistic freedom on Wuli Records. Lee wrote nearly all of the songs on “So I’m Told” and Slumberland. So if you would like to hear Lee expressing himself with his phat original band, add “So I’m Told” and “Slumberland” to your music collection.
In case you did not know, “Slumberland”, reached Number 7 on the Billboard’s Heat Seekers Albums Chart through “word of mouth”. It will now be available through our new distribution partner Universal Music Group/Fontana Distribution on October 25, 2010. Let’s try to get all of Lee’s albums in the top ten.
Watch out for the re-mixed and re-mastered “The Beautiful People” release on November 16, 2010.
