Put on your brake lights

Big thanks to Conor for the following news, taken from American Idol Extra via MJ's Big Blog: Blake Lewis is releasing his second album in October 6 (on Tommy Boy Records, information that is not new), preceded by a single, "Sad Song" (a "song for the broken-hearted"), in a few months.

He says it's pop-electro, but also everything he didn't get to do for his last album, elaborating on that point by saying that it's edgy and that he's writing all the songs and working with some great producers. As I've said before, I'm not positive that the record an independent Blake wants to and will make without any sort of commercial pressures being placed on him to moderate his personal preferences and push him towards the mainstream will be an album I'll love as much as his debut (which I loved to an almost unhealthy extent), but I can't help being excited by this news.

He also performed a cover of Rihanna's "Disturbia" on the show.

Yup, I undersign your comment entirely, in both aspects!
