Listen: 'American Idol's' Haley Reinhart streams first single
When can you get her debut album?
- Critic's Rating B-
- Readers' Rating A+
“American Idol” contestant Haley Reinhart will drop her debut album, “Listen Up!” on May 22 on 19/Interscope.
The jazzy singer’s first single “Free,” will be for sale on March 20, but you can stream it for free now on her Facebook page. (You have to go to her page to hear it. There's a slowed down, demo version on youtube, but it's not as strong as the final track).
You can also hear her sing it on “American Idol” on March 22 and it will be in the March 27 episode of “90210.”
That makes her the most recent Season 10 contestant to release a set following Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina and James Durbin. Casey Abrams' set will come out this summer on Concord. Paul McDonald seems to be doing his own thing. We wonder what’s happening with Reinhart's Interscope labelmate,Pia Toscano?
“Free” has a jazzy, piano-based, slightly quirky feel, redolent of Regina Spektor. It's not super catchy, but it's pleasant and likeable.
What do you think?
