Phillip Phillips Calls Sophomore Album a Drastic Improvement Over His Debut
Phillip Phillips won the 11th season of American Idol and followed it up not long after with a successful album called The World From The Other Side of the Moon. But now that his sophomore album came out this month, the “Home” singer looked back at this career, in an interview with St. Louis Today, and explained that his recent release is a significant improvement over his debut.
Why would Phillips say this? For one, with Behind The Light charting at No. 7 on the Billboard 200, he explained to the press that he had much more time to put together this release. He said: “I had more time to really make this second album than I did the first one. The first one was done in three weeks. It was really fast. This album is 20 times better than the first. There was more care put to it and a little more heart.”
But more time also came with another downside: He had to live up to the success of early singles like “Home” and “Gone, Gone, Gone,” which charted at No. 6 and No. 24, respectively, on the Billboard Hot 100. He said: “I was nervous about it, but I did my best and there’s nothing I can do about it now. It’s out there. But I knew since I had more time I felt I could make it better.”
Phillips is gearing up for a tour with O.A.R. right now. So far, “Raging Fire” dropped from his sophomore release, giving him a modest hit.
