‘American Idol’ Winner Lee DeWyze Releases ‘Oil and Water’ (AUDIO)

“American Idol” winner Lee DeWyze has a new record “Oil and Water” which is now available for preview. The album will be on sale this Friday.

The album can be streamed now for free on PEOPLE. He told the site:

“I think that the more albums I make, the more I’m getting centered and focused on what I’m about – which is lyrics and melody.”

“Something that doesn’t get talked about as much is the between stuff,” he said. “An artist puts out a record and then they perform, they tour for a year or so, and then another album comes about, but going on tour isn’t just going on tour: There’s a lot more to it.”
