Today, March 3, “American Idol” Season 11 winner, Phillip Phillips, released a brand new single: “Raging Fire.” The single is the first to be released off of Phillips’ new album, which is yet to be titled or have an official release date set. This album will be Phillip Phillips’ second, a follow-up to his successful debut album, “The World from the Side of the Moon.” He has been promoting his new single across his Twitter and Facebook pages over the past few days, posting reminders, such as:

on his Twitter handle just a short while ago.
In an interview with Billboard, Phillips revealed that the new album will show a different side of him, and he and his team have been working on it for about a month-and-a-half. They hope to have it ready for release by May. Billboard.com also features a brief behind-the-scenes video of the making of “Raging Fire,” a song which was just finished one week ago. Phillips told Billboard his label (Interscope Records) was very eager to get the song out to the public.
Phillip Phillips is set to perform on this week’s “American Idol” results show, which airs March 6. After that, he sets off on the Canadian leg of his tour March 8 with Twin Forks, which continues through the end of the month. A complete list of tour dates can be found on Phillip Phillips’ official website.
