Kelly Clarkson Previews a New Song, Tim Halperin Debuts on Billboard & Lee DeWyze Parts Ways with RCA Records

I don’t know how often I’ll do these Idol news-related round ups, but this morning seemed like a good time for one!

Earlier this week, Kelly Clarkson “leaked” a new track, “What Doesn’t Kill You (Stronger).”   Her fifth studio album, Stronger, is due out later this month on Monday, October 24. Take a listen to the song below!

Season 10 alum Tim Halperin shared some exciting news with his fans on Twitter this morning!

My exciting news: Check out who is #14 on the new Billboard Chart! WOOT WOOT! #raisetheroof
Rise and Fall is #14 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums Chart!  And as a friendly reminder, you can download your copy of Rise and Fall on iTunes! Congrats, Tim!

The Hollywood Reporter confirmed this morning that Lee DeWyze has been dropped by RCA Records. A rep for Lee told THR that the singer-songwriter is “in a good place right now.”

Other Idol winners that are still on RCA’s roster, include powerhouses Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood, as well as David Cook and Kris Allen.

And speaking of Idol winners, season 10 winner Scotty McCreery released his debut album, Clear As Day earlier this week! Scotty’s expected to debut at #1 on next week’s Billboard Chart. Exciting!
