pia toscano twitpic 2 Pia Toscano drops 'This Time,' tweets pics from Ryan Seacrest's showPia Toscano, who was shockingly eliminated at Top 8 on “American Idol” Season 10, has officially released her first single, “This Time.” The pretty brunette was quickly scooped up by Interscope Records, which is helmed by “Idol” mentor Jimmy Iovine, after her surprisingly early departure.

Toscano’s debut album is due out later this year. Will you be buying “This Time” on iTunes Tuesday (July 12)?  We think it sounds more current than a lot of the songs she performed on the show.

Toscano leaked the track early on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show Monday morning and later tweeted a couple super-cute pictures of her visit to his studio.
