American Idol alum Kris Allen is releasing his third album, “Horizons,” on August 12 and has been counting down the days via social networking. Yesterday he tweeted, “#Horizons #Aug12 #yesthisisgoingtohappeneveryday http://instagram.com/p/q6vIYcSy4T/” with the link directing to a countdown clock for the release. He tweeted the same countdown clock on Friday and it is likely that he will continue to do so daily until the album's release.
As another way of building hype for the album release, Kris is playing an “I Spy Horizons” game with fans, giving away perks such as free signed copies of the album and singing cover songs of the winners’ choice. Now in the contest’s third part, Allen is continuing to send fans on a hunt through his new single’s “Prove It To You” lyric video and has them post a creative picture of the answer. The latest contest is a search for the three numbers that open the briefcase in one of the last “give me a chance” moments in the video. Kris’ fans are extremely creative, as entries can be seen by some of the current entries. The “Prove It To You” lyric video can be seen above.
Kris is rumored to be touring across the country with a list of shows that suspiciously coincides Boyce Avenue, although he not has not yet officially confirmed a tour. Some solo performances are confirmed, such as The National Lentil Festival in Pullman, Washington, Trine University in Indiana, and several others. Fans are eager to hear him perform the new songs live and are hoping for tour confirmation soon.
