We haven’t heard much from Kris Allen since he split with RCA Records following the lackluster chart performance of his sophomore album, Thank You Camellia, back in 2012. Now, the 29-year-old singer is back as an independent artist with his own label called DogBear Records. Teaming up with The Civil Wars‘ producer Charlie Peacock, Kris is preparing the release of his upcoming third studio album, Horizons. While the new record doesn’t drop until August 12, here we have the first single “Prove It To You” featuring Lenachka, a soft and smooth, understated pop-rock ballad about finding that one person you love and fighting for it. It’s surprisingly a strong return even though its more of a laid back number. Kris has always been one of my favorites to come out of the Idol machine and I can’t wait for the new album. Indie looks good on him. What do you guys think?
