Nick Fradiani, American Idol season 14 winner, stopped by to perform his new single “Love Is Blind,” from his debut album, Hurricane. A sophomore album is in the works, but no release date has been set.
The official video for “Love Is Blind,” released on Facebook on January 23rd, shows Nick surprising a bride and groom, ready to perform for their first dance as husband and wife.
Right now he’s finishing up the writing and recording process for his second album. Nick told us, “This new one that I’ve been working on feels more organic. And I feel a lot better about it.”
He also opened up about how the writing process can differ from artist to artist. There are a lot of ways in which artists write songs. Some of the most famous ones have big camps of people who write hundreds of songs for them, with hopes that one of them will be a big hit, Nick told us.
“When I wrote with Jason Mraz, he’s totally old school. […] He walked in with just his guitar, not in a case, and said ‘Are you Nick? Am I writing with you?’” Nick continued, “And at the end of the day [he records his demo] on the phone.”
Will American Idol be back for another season? Nick admitted that he doesn’t have any details yet, but he’s hoping that if it does, there will be a balance between all the talent shows on TV right now! “I think The Voice needs to chill. I can’t even keep up. There have been like nine Voices in a year.”
