Pia Toscano’s Debut Album: A Cross Between Sia, Kelly Clarkson & Rihanna (VIDEO)

After a discussion of last week’s The Voice, TV Line’s Michael Slezak talks to American Idol Season 9 alum, Pia Toscano, about what’s ahead after her recent split with Universal Music Group.

She’s happily working on her debut album, signed to the producers she worked with at UMG–Harvey Mason Jr. and Damon Thomas. The team has only just started, but they’ve gotten a ton done already. Plus she gets to keep some of the songs she recorded at Interscope.

One of the songs she hopes to keep from the old label, she describes as “my story…powerful, strong, shows the grit in my voice.” She doesn’t want to tip her hand just yet with any song titles!

Pia characterizes the sound on her debut album as “really powerful, anthemic.” The record will hava a very pop and contemporary sound, while keeping her vocal power front and center. She says to expect “Sia meets Kelly Clarkson meets Rihanna.” She adds, “It’s got the edge, it’s got the power…it’s going to be so fun.”

Also, Pia will be singing the National Anthem at the European NFL game on October 28 at the Wembley.
