After about two and a half years since his first album was released, and more than a year since his Christmas album hit stores, Clay Aiken is finally due to record his second studio album, which is now expected in May.
He’ll go into the studio to record next month. In addition to new material, the new record may contain “lots of covers,” an RCA spokesperson told Entertainment Weekly. The magazine reports that Clay “is sorting through potential material now and that “he’ll be hitting the studio this March–with an eye toward a May release date.”
This news comes despite a pair of incomprehensibly stupid rumors in the wake of recent news: an idiotic overheard conversation and an absurd Page Six item that parses its words carefully to essentially create the news it is “reporting.” That item says that Clay’s fans “could file a class-action lawsuit against the singer,” quoting “a spy” who says fans “might want their money back.” The key words, of course, are “might” and “could,” as in, one day, Page Six and Jossip might have actual news to report instead of just printing quotes that could be completely fabricated by gossip-whores who might be desperate to capitalize on recent controversy.
