Fans of Kris Allen have been waiting for months to find out the season eight American Idol winner's second single. Most were hoping it would be either "Before We Come Undone" or the very catchy, "Alright With Me." Both co-wrote by Allen.
However, Allen's official website is streaming a new version of "The Truth," which features vocals by Pat Monahan of Train. Monahan also penned the song. Although, his website did not explicitly state that it is Allen's next single, Sony Music sent radio stations notification that it, in fact, is and will be impacting Hot AC radio on May 3.
Fans have left over 600 comments on Allen's website about the new mix of "The Truth." The overall feeling is that they would rather the album version be released instead of this latest version.
The new mix of "The Truth" seems to be the result of Train's recent success with their huge Top 10 hit, "Hey, Soul Sister." Allen's first single, "Live Like We're Dying" was a Top 10 hit on multiple radio formats and went platinum, selling over one million copies.
