'American Idol's' Clay Aiken on new album: 'An opportunity to be myself'
He tells Entertainment Tonight, "There are a lot of elements to this album that are about me returning to what I'm comfortable with. To me, older songs are more melodically appealing and beautiful. So doing this album was an opportunity to just be myself."
Clay will also be setting off on a new tour this summer alongside his Season 2 fellow finalist Ruben Studdard. The tour kicks off July 23 in Asheville, NC and ends Aug. 14 in Biloxi, MS. Tickets are on sale now.
