Phillip Phillips Dishes On New Album

Phillip Phillips

On November 19th, Phillip Phillips, the season eleven winner of 'American Idol', will release his debut album 'The World from the Side of the Moon', which features contributions from Gregg Wattenberg, the writers of "Home" and his girlfriend.

Speaking to the 22-year-old Leesburg, Georgia native opened up to The Hollywood Reporter about some of the songs on the album. Read what he had to say beneath:

On His Girlfriend, Hannah Blackwell:
"She helped me with a song called 'Take Me Away,'" says Phillips. "It's not on the core album but a bonus for the Target album." Phillips says the pining track -- which includes the lines "You’re all I wanna see / All I wanna touch and feel in every way" -- came from a poem Blackwell wrote about him.

On "Tell Me A Story", Which Contains His Favorite Lyric:
"I had all the music written," he says. "The first verse and the chorus were written, I just didn't have a second verse. So David Ryan, who plays with John Mayer a lot, came in there, we got to know each other a bit, and I showed him what I had. He started pushing me to write more and after a couple of days, this came to me one night: 'Hope is just a ray of what everyone should see / Alone is the street where you found me / Scared of what's behind you / Scared of what's in front / Live with what you have now / Make the best of what's to come.'"

On the Album Title, 'The World From the Side of the Moon':
"It’s a lyric from the first song on the album, "Man on the Moon." I was going through all the lyrics because I had to make decisions at a quick pace, and it kind of stuck out to me. I asked a few friends and they liked it. People might compare it to Dark Side of the Moon, but as long as I have a different album cover of the sun with my face looking down at the Earth, it'll be okay."

On the Meaning Behind the Title:
"I was starting to think about all I had been through, and someone gave me some DVDs of the whole [Idol] season, so I was kind of watching myself from a whole different world that no one else really knows. It’s interesting to see how it happened and so fast. That's how I picked the title: I felt like I watched myself grow and this whole album is representing where I am."

On Recording the Full Album In Three Weeks:
"Yes. We just finished it. From first cutting acoustic guitars to last week, it was exactly three weeks. Like I said, I was pressured on time, but it kind of helped the sound. We didn't over analyze things or overproduce anything, we kept it raw."

On Working With "Home" Writers Greg Holden & Drew Pearson:
"We all got in a room and I showed them an idea of the guitar part, started singing the verses and we just wrote the lyrics together. It's called "Can't Go Wrong," and I really like that song. It's similar to "Home." We all had a good time getting to know each other. This is all new for all three of us. They understood where I was in my situation, and I understood where they were."

On the Confidence Being In-Shape Give Him:
"I walk into a room with a lot more confidence. All my life I've tried to hide my height. I was taller than everybody else and stood out, so I would slouch and try to hide it. But with what I've been able to do with my body, I'm owning it. I'm standing up when I walk into a room."

On the Freedom His Wealth Brings:
"I've worked my entire life to get to this place. The first 28 years of my life, it was hell and misery. Now I can do whatever I want. I don't want any drama; I don't want to argue; I don't want to answer to anybody. I've worked too hard to get here, and I'm loving this freedom."

Taylor Swift Stands Tall On 'Billboard' Cover

Billboard (October 27, 2012), Taylor Swift

Her new studio album 'Red' blazes into retailers today and is expected to ignite the charts on fire, so it should comes as no surprise that Taylor Swift is featured on the cover of this week's issue of Billboard magazine.

In the issue, the "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" singer talks about the new album, her fear of the album leaking ahead of its release date and her marketing plans to hit the one million mark again. Peep quotes from her interview beneath:

On Her New Album, 'Red':
"I'm 22. I'm all over the place, so my record is all over the place. All these emotions are very loud and very different. At one end of the spectrum you have 'Sad Beautiful Tragic,' which is a breakup song in the form of a funeral march, and you also have 'Never Ever Getting Back Together' again, which is a breakup song in the form of a parade."

On Her Fears of the Album Leaking:
"We're really paranoid, knock on wood, about a leak. So we don't even go near a song that hasn't been released. We don't even practice them."

On Her Marketing Efforts For the Album:
"The first step was to look at where we wanted the record to go. A worldwide release, really - we made that a priority. To me, the answer to every question of 'Will you do this to promote the album?' was 'yes.' My team has come up with brilliant ways to market this record, to expand the retail footprint. Selling an album in Walgreens, selling it at Papa John's - these are all different ways that have so far been unexplored, so we'll see what happens."
