Phillip Phillips was crowned the winner of American Idol 2012 on Wednesday night and some are saying his coronation song, “Home,” may have been the one thing that pushed him past Jessica Sanchez…others are saying it’s his cute looks and how the majority of the voters are tween girls, but we aren’t focusing on that right now…it is all about the coronation song for the American Idol 2012 winner.
“Home” is a mix between folk and pop rock and definitely has the Phillip Phillips sound to it. The new single for the winner of American Idol 2012 is currently #1 on the iTunes charts, but Phillip isn’t as happy as some would be to hear that news. He told the Hollywood Reporter: “I don’t write songs like that. It’s a very good song and I’m glad people enjoyed it, but I’m itching to do my own stuff.” Phillip Phillips went on to say, “It’s a little too pop for me.”
As much as the American Idol 2012 winner is to get into the studio and start his own album, Phillip Phillips will have to wait on that for a little while. He will be busy recovering from his kidney surgery to help fix the kidneys that kept him in pain most of the American Idol 2012 season and he has the American Idol 2012 Top 10 summer tour to follow…busy, busy.
So, take a listen to the studio version of Phillip Phillips’ new single, “Home,” and let us know what you think. Were you one of the people that already bought it? Will you buy it now after listening to it? Tell us in the comments!
