Everyone remember Blake Lewis? He was that cute beatbox guy who finished in second on the sixth season of American Idol. Blake‘s debut album A.D.D. (Audio Day Dream) failed to make an impact and his independently released 2009 sophomore album Heartbreak On Vinyl was a major club hit – but his music never really took off commercially. Yesterday, the 31-year-old singer-songwriter announced that he has signed to major label Republic Records (home to Drake, Florence + The Machine, Gotye, and many more) and will be releasing his third album, Portrait Of A Chameleon, this spring. The lead single “Your Touch” rolls from pulsating electronic and hints of dubstep into a hard-charging pop anthem with a killer chorus. The song is also being used for Internet Explorer 10 commercials. With the renewed popularity of electronic music, I think our Blake‘s deserved time may have finally come. What do you guys think?
