'American Idol' winner Phillip Phillips announces album title, release date

Back in August, when American Idol winner Phillip Phillips told 95.5 WPLJ that his debut album wouldn’t come out until “January or February,” some Idol experts were surprised. Was Interscope going to let its newest star — whose smash single “Home” is approaching double platinum status — skip the lucrative holiday season? “They really want to give me some time to make an album that represents me,” he said at the time.

Either Phillips realized he needed much less time to make a self-representative album, or he lost a behind-the-scenes battle with Jimmy Iovine.

Christina Aguilera announces new album's release date, releases art for single 'Your Body'


Christina Aguilera has been keeping busy with her judging gig on The Voice, but she’s made time to record some new music too. On Wednesday she had a few announcements for her Twitter followers about the new record, including the cover art for the first single, “Your Body.”

Fans will have to wait for the album, called Lotus, until November, but “Your Body” is set for a release this Friday. The Monday, Sept. 17 episode of The Voice will feature a clip of the music video for “Your Body.” Melina Matsoukas, who also directed Rihanna’s VMA-winning “We Found Love” video, directed the “Your Body” video.

While answering fans questions on Twitter, Aguilera revealed some more about Lotus: “There are some beautiful personal ballads on this album. I wouldn’t do a record without them,” she wrote.

It's coming: Carly Rae Jepsen's album 'Kiss' set for Sept. 18 release

After a summer full of Hot 100 dominance, countless parody videos, and a planned 90210 cameo, it’s hard to believe Carly Rae Jepsen hasn’t put out a new album in four years. That all changes next month, however, when Jepsen will release her sophomore effort, Kiss, on Sept. 18. READ FULL STORY
