Scott MacIntyre is returning to “American Idol” Thursday, March 11 — and he has a new album to promote titled “Heartstrings.”
“Heartstrings,” MacIntyre’s first post-“Idol” CD is hitting iTunes and MacIntyre’s website Thursday, March 11, which coincides with his return to the “American Idol” stage. He won’t get to perform a song from the album, though. He and fellow season 8 finalist Matt Giraud are instead performing their duet that was cut from last year’s finale, a dueling pianos rendition of the Billy Joel hit “Tell Her About It.”
The new album features a dozen original songs, including upbeat pop/rock numbers like “Stars,” “The Good, the Bad, the Ugly” and its lead single, “Heartstrings,” to intimate acoustic ballads like “Autumn Leaves” and “The Sun Still Shines,” to the humorous romp “I’ll Take Tom (MySpace Breakup Song).”
A song about a MySpace break-up? We’re intrigued.
