Nylon Magazine ‏@NylonMag What’s it really like to be on American Idol? @haleyreinhart tells us all about it – and her new album! ❤  1:33 PM – 29 May 12 via Twitter for Mac · Details

Recording and everything? The first time you do a take, that energy can’t even be duplicated. “Free,” my single, is the only song on my album that I didn’t write or co-write, and I picked it out on tour, and I recorded it here in New York! I even went back to re-record it, because I thought, ‘Well, it was so rushed, and it’s the first real recording I’ve ever done in my life,’ and the rehearsed take wasn’t even close to the original. If it works, it works – don’t touch it again.

You’re famous in Idol world for getting Led Zeppelin to clear their songs for you. What was that like? It was so cool! I kept asking the producers if I could do Zeppelin, and the producers kept saying, “No Haley, they’re not gonna clear their songs, they never clear it for anybody – and I’m like, ‘They cleared it for someone’ and the producers are like, “Yeah Haley, who was that?” It was Adam Lambert. So guess what, it looks like I had to work my way up for the producers to actually give me a chance to ask Led Zeppelin. [The producers] sent them “House of the Rising Sun” and the band liked it a lot and they let me sing their stuff. I was in honor. I was like, “There’s no turning back; this is my pick; I’m gonna get my dad up there to do it with me.” … Like Amy Winehouse? I love Amy Winehouse… She came from jazz, I came from jazz. There’s a lot of similarities in terms of our musical style, and I guess with the ’50s pinup vibe, that’s very shared, too. But I want to get back into my edgier psychedelic vibe!

Haley Reinhart, “Listen Up!” [PopQuizBeat Blog, PopQuiz, Review, B+, 5/29]

Reinhart’s a cupcake to be reckoned with, too. What jumps out at me from listening to Listen Up! as a whole is that while she never says a direct word about grrrl power, every lyric is written from the point of view of somebody who’s potentially powerful in her own skin: if the relationship’s failing, she capable of leaving; if she’s unhappy, she can figure out how to stop crying; if there are sparks in the air, she’s in charge of her own sexuality; and her dreams are active ideals of a better future. No wonder she’s having a better time at the club.

… I went on to iTunes to preview each song on her debut album called “Listen Up!” and after getting through the first few I decided she is going to be a staple on my Summer Playlist. Her raspy voice is like Dusty Springfield meets British artist Duffy meets the retro feel of Adele. Her songs are much more uptempo than any of those lovely ladies that I just named making her a perfect choice for Summer fun. Haley Reinhart’s debut album “Listen Up!” is so good you’ll forget she was EVER on a singing competition TV show.

Her album is also far more authentic than most that come after that show, with a unique vocal style that seems to be both before and beyond her years.
