‘American Idol’ champ Lee DeWyze explains record label change

Moving on…

On Thursday, we published a story that after one album in “Live It Up,” “American Idol” season 9 champion Lee DeWyze was dropped by his record label in RCA.

So what does Lee himself have to say about the change? Writing in a new series of posts on his Twitter account Friday,  the singer (who had a adult contemporary hit in “Sweet Serendipity”) explained that the change technically happened quite a while ago — and he is currently planning a new future:

“Hey guys. Just wanted to let you all know I have not been with RCA for a good few months. I didn’t want that to be my focus. I am putting out another album, and there are many things in the works. I am very happy to be making the music I am making, & the direction I’m going in. I have the best fans, and the best group of people working behind me on this album, and my career. Thank you for your continued support. I love you guys and can’t wait to share What ive been working on with you. I’ll talk to you soon, it’s beautiful outside, enjoy it!”

Stay tuned — we will have more when it comes to Lee’s plans as soon as he announces them.

Do you think that Lee — who also has a considerable talent as a songwriter — will be able to succeed in an independent world?
