‘American idol’ contestant James Durbin rocked the world bringing classic rock and metal music back to the spotlight after his kicking rendition of the Judas Priest classic ‘You Got Another Thing Comin’.
James received some criticism from some Idol fans saying that his style was way too close to Idol contestant favorite Adam Lambert, but James still managed to squeeze into the hearts of America and made it into fourth place.
Now James busy with his upcoming album and is currently touring with the Top 11 Idols Live show. Even though James is working like mad, he took time away from his music, his meet and greets and his press interviews to chat with fans on his Twitter account about his upcoming CD.
James has said in the past that he hopes to have his album released in November of 2011, but he wanted to give fans a little taste of what’s to come. He first thanked his fans for the tremendous support they’ve given him throughout his career, saying;
“Thank you to all my fans who continue to support me! Thank you for standing and screaming even when the ushers constantly tell you to sit, because the people sitting behind you can’t see! Stick it to the man! YOU ROCK!”
Durbin went on to say that fans can expect his recorded album to “be [an awesome] mixture of everything”, but that “you can always count on the live experience to be heavier than the record.” He went on to say that there is “no title yet” for the album, but added “It’s almost done. Then back to la with Heidi & Hunter to record, off to Philippines, then back to finish recordin.”
James also said that there will be lots of “co writes” on the album including 2 with his favorite band Hardcore Superstar.
