American Idol Season 10 metal enthusiast James Durbin has announced a title and release date for his debut album, Memories Of A Beautiful Disaster. According to Durbin, the title “means looking back on events in my life, to see the beauty in the pain.” (It’s maybe just a smidge too similar to Kanye’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, though, no?) The album will drop November 21, the same day as other LPs from Rihanna, Daughtry and Taylor Swift. If you want a taste of what to expect, jump below to hear his rockin’ new song “Stand Up”, off Official Gameday NFL Music Vol. 2.
James’ album will be released on Wind-Up Records, who also boast acts like Evanescence, Five For Fighting and Creed. It has not been confirmed if “Stand Up” will also appear on James’ LP.
So far, three of Idol Season 10′s Top 4 have announced debut album release dates. Can someone please explain where the wonderful Haley Reinhart is in all this? Free Haley!
