Clay Aiken goes back to classics for new album

By Greg Hernandez Okay all you Claymates, you’re going to have to wait until June 1 to get your hands on Clay Aiken’s new album Tried and True.

But the now openly gay star talked to about his fifth studio album which is filled with timeless classics.

“There are a lot of elements to this album that are about me returning to what I’m comfortable with,” he says. “To me, older songs are more melodically appealing and beautiful. So doing this album was an opportunity to just be myself.”

    I cannot wait for Clay’s CD on June 1st. We got 2 songs today. “Misty” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You”. The orchestration, the production, and of course THE VOICE. I never thought anyone could ever sing “Misty” like Johnny Mathas, but Clay has surpassed it. It is such a beautiful rendition. Now this is what classic songs are all about. Amazing…

    This CD is a must buy for lovers of beautiful music. Clay Aiken has a voice unrivalled in the music world today and sings these classics as if they were written for him alone. Once you’ve heard Clay sing these songs, you will forget the original artist as Clay makes them his own. One of the highlights is “Cryin” with Linda Eder and is a special treat for all.

    Love what I’ve heard so far and have the cd pre-ordered.
    The preview of the PBS special in August is fantastic.
    Clay and Decca are a winning team!.
    My husband and I are looking forward to seeing Clay in concert in Reno this summer for the first time.
