The second post American Idol album by Blake Lewis titled Heartbreak On Vinyl hits stores October 6, 2009. If the title song is any indication it will be well worth the wait. For those who subscribe to his e-mail list at the official Blake Lewis web site, he has begun releasing links to hear songs from the new collection in advance. The first up is the title song "Heartbreak On Vinyl." It is built around the lyrical hook, "I waited for you at the record shop," and is a simply gorgeous pop tune. Those who remember and appreciate mid 80's electro pop like Limahl's "Never Ending Story" are likely to love this. It might bring a tear to your eye or a catch in the throat, and it is likely to make you want to get up and move. Go ahead, do yourself a favor, subscribe to the list and hear a great new pop song. Perhaps this will be a much needed breakthrough for Blake Lewis.
