Kris Allen Back In The Studio
His friend and band member Cale Mills started it off in the early evening by tweeting: Saw mj's "this is it" last night & today we're recording in the studio where "we are the world" was recorded. Who wants to watch thriller?!
Seven hours later, Kris' wife Katy tweeted: In the studio with Kris.... Can't wait for people to hear this
Kris finally joined in an hour after that, around 2:30 am, with this tweet: In the studio. I know I know. The album is done. But I couldn't stay out.
So naturally, wild speculation ran rampant about just what Kris was doing in the studio for nine hours. Here are a few theories that went through my head:
*Recording an acoustic EP
*Recording Christmas music
*Recording a song for a soundtrack
*Recording a song for a charity CD
*Recording Man in the Mirror for a Michael Jackson tribute album (thanks to Cale's tweet)
*Recording version 8.0 of Heartless
The more I think about it, though, the more I think it's gotta be some kind of EP. I don't think that it takes 9 hours to record one song, and that's a heck of a lot of $ to spend on studio time for one song anyway.
So I'm going to put my prediction on the record (because I want to come back and laugh when we get the truth if I'm totally wrong): I think Kris is recording a 4-song acoustic EP that will include Live Like We're Dying, Heartless (perhaps with Gangsta's Paradise mash-up), Let It Rain and the Mat Kearney co-write, Top of the World.
Anyone else have any good guesses? Speculate away in the comments ...
