Where's Clay? Recording!

by at .

Clay Nation is getting restless.

At least some members are, according to various blogs. Fans are wondering why their favorite Idol has been absent as of late. While it's true that our main man Clay Aiken hasn't been in the news too much lately, although he's got at least several good reasons. Not only is he busy with his foundation and other charities, but Clay has been working on his new album, the follow-up to his 2003, double-platinum smMeasure of a Manash hit, Measure of a Man (right).

Dick Hodgin, a partner and producer at Osceola Music in Raleigh, N.C., reports that Aiken was recently recording some vocal tracks at Osceola.

"And we got a keeper vocal on Sunday," Hodgin said.

There's been talk of a fall release for Clay's as-yet-untitled third full-length CD, but his official site is still vague on the release day, and it it looking like it may not hit stores until the end of the year, if not in early 2007.

    Yes, Jake is correct. The CD is finished. I believe that was originally found in May.

    "A Thousand Different Ways" is rumored for September 19th, and Clay's backup singer, Angela Fisher, has said she will be touring with Clay by the end of the year. The 19th has been reported by FYE, B&N, Fred Meyer/Kroger, and mentioned in Variety Magazine, as well as, *supposedly* today, on MTV. The OFC (Clay's Official Fan Club) has also mentioned previously that the album and tour were "in the works" for 2006.

    Clay blogged that he was finished recording not long ago. The CD release date should be announced very soon. There are millions of us anxiously waiting for the new CD. An article from his record label today says it is due this fall. Can't wait!

    If I wait another minute for his CD, I think I am going to have a seizure. I don't know if I can wait. I love this guy too much, you know? ha!
