WORLD PREMIERE: Listen To Pia Toscano’s New Single ‘This Time’ [AUDIO]
Popular Season 10 ‘American Idol’ contestant, Pia Toscano, visited “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” Monday to debut her new song, “This Time,” which she will be performing as part of her set during this Summer’s American Idol Live! Tour. Only recently, Pia has officially signed a recording contract with Interscope Records helmed by American Idol mentor Jimmy Iovine. ‘This Time’ is a pleasant surprise from Pia, and will not disappoint her fans who faithfully voted for her all throughout her stay on American Idol.
Currently, Pia is traveling on the American Idol Live! Tour bus with “all the girls on one bus. We have Scotty’s mom, Thia’s Mom, Lauren’s mom, and Judy’s mom. We are so exhausted after the shows that we are just passed out. We check into the hotel as soon as we get into the next city.” On the tour Pia is “performing songs that I haven’t gotten the opportunity to sing. I’m doing Jay-Z & Alicia Keys‘ “Empire State of Mind,” Rihanna‘s “California King Bed,” and my new single. After the tour we will release the album, and then maybe work on my own tour, I really don’t know yet! Everything has been happening so quick.”
Pia reflects on what supplied the inspiration of her single, “This song is a journey of self discovery for me. Its an empowerment kind of song. I feel like its a ladies anthem. It pertains to my journey on American Idol to a relationship. This is my time. I can’t believe I’m allowed this opportunity.” When asked about creating her album Pia says, “I’m about 8 songs [into my album] , and hopefully it will be released in the fall. Its awesome. I’ve been working with Rodney Jerkins, Harvey Mason Jr., Heather Bright, Rock Mafia. Its been a dream! These are all my dream producers that I’ve been working with.”
Listen in to hear Pia take calls from her fans, including her cousins! Pia can be seen on stage this Friday at 7:00 for The American Idol Live!” summer tour!
