“No hay día que no llegue” my mom tells me often (no wait is forever, more or less), and so last week, on the first day of summer, Phillip Phillips sent out the tweet that fans all over have been waiting for: the new music is finally coming.
Get ready world! Here comes some new music!

Originally announced for a fall release last year, Phillip’s third album has been delayed several months already. Though he did not provide any other details or possible dates, an article by The Hollywood Reporter published the same day confirmed that Phillip had settled his dispute with 19 Entertainment and one of American Idol’s “primary producers” freeing him from a related lawsuit and the legal complications that have prevented him from officially releasing any new music. I really hope this is the end of this story and that sunnier days are indeed coming for Phillip and his family and team.
The timing of this news could also not be any more perfect as he is about to start his summer tour this coming weekend on July 1st with a couple of newly added shows in Baton Rouge, LA and at Summerfest in Milwaukee, WI.
Phillip has already played a good handful of new songs during shows last summer and this year and we probably can expect him to play those and even some new ones as well as he takes the road. Will the same songs make it to the album? We don’t know. Regardless, we are set to have an awesome summer filled with Phillip’s music and that is just a wonderful gift unto itself.
Check out all the dates here . Many include a Meet & Greet option, so don’t delay, get your tickets now!
