Kris Allen on His Car Accident: “I Thought I’d Never Play Again”
It’s like you’re trying to support this thing, and also, you want this person to be proud of you. So I feel like I’ve tried to step up my game a little bit, because I want my kid to look back on the things that I’ve done and go, ‘Man, my dad was cool!'” Among the songs inspired by Oliver’s birth is “Beautiful and Wild,” which is about seeing the world “through the new eyes of a child.” The folksy ballad will be included on Kris’s still-untitled next album, which is set to come out this summer on Kris’s own label and is being produced by Charlie Peacock (Switchfoot, the Civil Wars). As for the underrated and under-promoted “Thank You Camellia,” Kris admits: “There were a lot of things that happened with that record that I would have liked to have happened better. And it just didn’t. We did the best that we could; there were things that were out of my hands. But I love that record, I really do. The first record happened so fast, and there was no continuity to it whatsoever. The second one, I felt really good about it.
