    [03.12.09] Idol winner's album release unseen

    Idol winner's album release unseen



    FORMER Byron Bay student Stan Walker cannot wait for his fans to hear his first album.

    And neither can he.

    The 18-year-old 2009 Australian Idol winner will release his album, Introducing Stan Walker, on Friday week, but he has no idea how it will sound.

    “I haven’t heard it yet,” Stan said.

    “I will probably find out the same day as everyone else.”

    The album will feature re-recorded studio tracks of some of Stan’s performances on Idol including Purple Rain, The Climb, Ordinary People, Superstar and his two new songs, Think of Me and debut single Black Box.

    It will also include a duet with Stan’s idol and the original Australian Idol, Guy Sebastian.

    To add to his success, Black Box has further launched Stan into stardom, giving him his first appearance on the ARIA music charts.

    The single was ranked number two on the charts for singles and downloads this week.

    It was beaten by Tik Tok from American singer Kesha Rose Sebert.

    “It has been amazing, I’m really excited about it all,” he said.

    “It has all been so full on.”

    Stan finished filming for the Black Box music video clip earlier this week.

    Stan, who is resting up at home with family in Coolangatta at the moment, is gearing up for the new year.

    “I’ve just been taking the time to relax and rehearse,” he said.

    Sony Music Chairman and CEO Denis Handlin, said Stan was deserving of his Idol win.

    “Stan is a remarkable and gifted young performer who has shown great spirit not only throughout his life, but during the show to win this year’s series,” Mr Handlin said.

    “I am very pleased that again this year we will have a brilliant album of Stan’s incredible journey from the show to release to the public for Christmas.”

    Stan was born in Melbourne and was raised in New Zealand before eventually settling on the North Coast.

    He said he had a troubled life surrounded by drugs and violence but credits Christianity with helping him sort himself out.

    Please give proper credit if re-posting this elsewhere.


    oh you bet we can't wait!
    I'm not sure who's more excited. Stan or the fans.... Razz

    He might have made no 1 on the arias if SOny had replicated enough CDs - seems a lot of people not able to buy it.

    Let us know how you go SarahBunny, my fingers are crossed that you get a copy.
    Robyn its true, i know a heap of ppl that said that couldn't get a copy. But i wonder if its because some of us got more than one copy.
    lol!
    If the shops had put them on the shelves the next day, rather than sitting on them, it may also have been a different story. Took me 2 days b4 i found them in BIG W. Monday I chased down all the shops I went to BIG W, Target & K-Mart never had it on their shelves. When asked they didn't know, or they said it was on the docks not been checked off yet.
    As long as the album is put on the shelves straight away i will happy. Bring it on "INTRODUCING STAN WALKER" AVAILABLE 11/12/09. 6 DAYS TO GO... bounce

    Maybe the recording studio sessions went better/faster than expected and they are able to release earlier?

    I don't know The Sanity web site still says Dece 11. So does JB Hi-Fi's say Dece 11, although it does carry the following notice:

    "Please note: the above release date is for online store only due to shipping requirements – instore release date may vary."

    So It still looks like Dec 11 to me.
