New Album - Aiming for "Early 2008" Release

Clay revealed at tonight's M&G in West Palm Beach that he and his team is aiming for an early 2008 release of the new album. Of course, the last time Clay told us this, he ended up being about 8 months off, so take this with a grain of salt. We do know however that 2 songs Clay submitted have been approved by RCA.

Here is the report from the various boards...

From CV:

OMG..................M & G report:

he came in WET from the shower. looked like a waif off the street. 5230 shirt with ragged shorts. he asked everyone's name. he was comfortable, easy to be with. mary, jamie & jerome in room

CD coming out in early 2008 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

his part takes a week or two. it is the preproduction and the post production. artwork. takes the most time. if he had to, he could record the whole thing in a week.

she is sorry to ramble

he will not be summer touring unless he gets that CD out.

she is shook up !! he is like talking to your relative in your living room.

lots of men in the audience. 10 orchestra members on the stage. he will not come to FLA for xmas. quite a few more dates that will come out, not ready to announce them yet.

he was extremely chatty.

Christmas in the Heartland...they said NJ was hardly heartland. she told him he needed to learn georgraphy before he goes on Fifth Grader. He said...go ahead, just ask me anything !!

funny, wonderful, warm, welcoming, kind person
Another quote from CV:
M&G was amazing. just out of the shower. white 5230 shirt and shredded cargos. sandals. he was totally at ease. CD WILL BE COMING OUT EARLY 2008!!! HIS PART TAKES A WEEK OR TWO - THE PRODUCTION TAKES THE TIME - GOAL - EARLY 2008!!! won't be summer touring unless he gets CD out in time.

    "I like Kelly Clarkson," said Tibben, "and when Ruben (Studdard) and Clay Aiken were up against each other, I wanted Clay to win. So I guess you could say I follow the show."

Palm Beach Post Pulls Out All The Stops For Clay Concert

We've gotta give kudos to the Palm Beach Post. Not only have they been profiling Claymates for the last 3 days, they've also given some other great coverage for Clay's concert tonight in West Palm Beach, FL.

Have a look:

1. Clay on the cover of their weekly TGIF section:

2. Front and center on their music page:

3. On their homepage:

Concert preview:

Don't miss popular singer and American Idol finalist Clay Aiken performing with an orchestra Dreyfoos Hall. His debut album, Measure Of A Man, hit No. 1 on Billboard's 200 chart and went triple platinum, while his powerful rendition of This Is The Night/Bridge Over Troubled Water won the 2003 Billboard Music Award for best single.
4. Their Clay Aiken quiz:

5. And, last but not least... day 4 of their 4 days of Clay; today's featured Claymate is Helene Lunden:
Our final Claymate!

Helene Lunden!
Residence: Boca Raton
Age: “Older than 40”
Profession: project manager for a major computer firm
Number of Clay Aiken concerts seen: “More than 20.”
Furthest she’s traveled in the name of Claydom: “Either Burlington, Vermont or Kansas City. I guess it depends on your measure.”

Her first Clay encounter: “I had never watched ‘American Idol,’ but I heard ‘You have to watch this kid sing! He has a fabulous voice.’ He did. He had something else that was hard to put a finger on. He has such a great spirit.”

I need you, more than anyone baby, you know that I have from the start: “My favorite (“American Idol”) performance was ‘Build Me Up, Buttercup.’ I loved it. I loved the way he looked, the song. He just comes out and makes me feel good.”

Funny, funny: “The only (Clay-related) thing I have in my office is a cartoon with John Edwards, where he’s talking to people about how it’s really too bad he lost, and how he hopes they voted for him. And when they walk away, one says ‘Who was that?” and the other person says “I think that was Clay Aiken!’”

The real “American Idol?” - There is a huge contingent of Clay Aiken fans who believe that he really earned more votes and is the true winner of the second season of “American Idol,” not Ruben Studdard. Says Helene: “I think that the votes were counted correctly. But did some get jammed up in the phone lines? Possibly. I think he’s much more popular because he didn’t win. His loss gave fans resistance to push against. They were supporting him far beyond what they would have. But God has a path for Clay.

Clay Plays Peek-A-Boo

Hee hee... this is so cute! Clay playing peek-a-boo at the Tampa concert last night ....


Clay Arrives in Tampa!


Welcome to the New CDD!

Today, CDD is unveiling its new layout. There are numerous features we have added to help your viewing experience.

  • Headlines: The 5 most recent headlines are shown at the top of the page

  • Photos: Photos we have uploaded to CDD are displayed at the top-left hand side of all our pages under "Home & News" in a sleek flash slideshow format.

  • Archives: No more clunky drop down menus! We have implemented a toggle style archive menu across all of CDD's blogs

  • Label cloud: We've introduced a label cloud on the left sidebar in the Home/News area. Click "[+/-] SHOW/HIDE label cloud " to show all the labels we have set up. Label clouds allow you to view posts grouped by label. For example, by clicking the "bubel aiken foundation" label, you can see all posts relating to the BAF.

    Another cool thing about labels is that more popular topics appear in a larger font size.

  • Older/Newer links: At the bottom of each page, you will see an "Older" and "Newer" link. This allows you to navigate easily through the dozens of posts that are put up weekly. Because of this feature, we have dropped the number of posts on our homepage from 35 to 15. In the archive area, these links will instead show dates, instead of the words "Older" and "Newer" themselves.

  • Video player: On the left sidebar of our main Home/News area, we've added a Google Video Search widget. Using the widget, you can search Google Video and YouTube! Watch your favorite clack right from CDD. We've pre-programed some popular search terms to the video player so you can start watching right away.

  • New weekly poll: Our weekly poll is now using Blogger's built in polling feature which is slicker and faster. After you vote, it will automatically load the results.

  • CDD Google Calendar: CDD is now publishing a Google Calendar which will help you keep track of all the events in the Clay nation. Access the calendar from the left sidebar of our "Home/News" area, or near the bottom of the page at the CDD Claytracker.

    You can also add the calendar to your favorite calendaring program such as Google Calendar, Microsoft Outlook and Apple's iCal.

  • Printing: Internet Explorer 6 users had trouble printing using the older version of CDD that we have just phased out. This issue, relating to some Internet Explorer specific coding, has been resolved; everyone should be able to print our pages now.
We would love hearing your comments about our new layout. Although we're confident that we have increased usability and functionality with the implementation of this new layout, there is always room for improvement. Feel free to comment on this post or to contact us through our Feedback form if you have any questions or concerns.
