Only two short months ago, in May, Caleb Johnson became the winner of American Idol at the end of the series’ 13th season. And abracadabra — his debut album Testify is due to be released in a mere two weeks, on August 12. Today the LP’s lead single, “Only One,” premiered, and the mid-tempo rock number finds the North Carolina crooner exercising his classic-rock vocal chops over some slick, radio-friendly instrumentation.

Phillip Phillips found some success sticking with this same multi-format pop-rock formula after winning Idol two years ago. Can Caleb keep the mojo going? Listen to “Only One” below and see what you think.
