Forget the potential of Michael Johns or David Archuleta for a moment.

An American Idol that has already established himself is coming out with a new album: Clay Aiken:

"We're hoping the next album will be out about May 6," Aiken, who is currently starring in the Broadway run of Monty Python's Spamalot as Sir Robin, told People magazine recently.

Aiken has been recording tracks for the RCA Records album when he's not on stage.

"We've picked most of the songs," he said."Sonically, I don't know that we're going down any path that's crazy. I'm not trying to be cool, I'm not trying to be hip. I'm not trying to do anything other than sing stuff that I'm good at."

What about an image overhaul, tied to the album, Clay?? The former Idol runner-up has gone through with that in the past.

"Last time I came out with dark crazy hair. We did that intentionally. But I'm just going to do what I do this time. We don't have any plans this time. But I've got the red wig [from Spamalot] – maybe I'll do that!"
