NBC’s ‘The Voice’ winner Tessanne Chin’s new album to be released March 25December 18, 2013
How is this for a quick turnaround? Apparently, “The Voice” is desperate to try to continue the tradition that it established with Danielle Bradbery when it comes to getting out a post-show album quickly (she’s already released on in Jamaica, but not on the same label). You heard Tessanne Chin perform her new single “Tumbling Down” at the end of the show Tuesday night, and you can now pre-order her currently-untitled disc on iTunes here.
While we may not know too much about Tessanne’s disc just yet for obvious reasons, we can at least say that it is carrying with it a March 25 release date that we will be interested to see if it actually comes to fruition. Danielle Bradbery was able to release a debut album within six months of her winning the show, Tessanne is only being given around 4. She’s been through the process of recording before, and maybe that will help her; also, she is not a teenager like Danielle was, so maybe that sort of maturity will allow her to clock all of the hours and get some great music out there for people to hear.
What we are especially happy with right now is that “The Voice” is making a concentrated effort to promote their contestants, and maybe even are doing a better job here than “American Idol” did with Candice Glover at the end of season 12. They brought in a big-name songwriter to work on the winners’ single in Ryan Tedder, and “Tumbling Down” is miles better than what Candice was saddled with. It’s not anywhere near the awesomeness that was Phillip Phillips’ “Home,” but this is much better than the average singing-show coronation song.
Personally, we feel like the real test for Tessanne will be with the single that follows this one, mostly because this is not in any way her style. She’s more of a reggae / pop / rock fusion artist, and she’s more likely to get adult-contemporary play with that than a fairly-generic Tedder song about heartbreak.
