Colton Dixon Announces Record Deal, New Single

by at . Comments

Are you sitting down, Colton Dixon fans? The seventh-place finisher on American Idol Season 11 has a major announcement to make.

In a new video, the singer says he's been signed by EMI/CMG and will be releasing a new album in the near future. It will include the single "You Are," which Dixon describes here as a "worship song" that he's very excited for supporters to hear.

Throughout the summer, Dixon has been performing an original song, “Never Gone,” on the Idols LIVE! tour. It will be available on iTunes September 25.

Colton was one of the more popular Idol contestants on Season 11.

His piano-based piano-infused take Eminem and Rihanna’s “Love the Way You Lie" was especially memorable and many were shocked when he was given the boot, despite never falling into the Bottom 3 until his final week.
