"American Idol" winner Phillip Phillips has announced an upcoming third album, Collateral, and a 2018 tour to follow. The singer-songwriter took to his Twitter account to make the announcement following a summer of touring and working on the new project. Collateral will be released on Jan. 19 and the Magnetic Tour will kick off on Feb. 9 in Cherokee, N.C. AXS has tickets here.
Phillips' tour will reach each corner of the U.S. as he travels along the entire east coast from Massachusetts to Florida during the 26-date trek. From there, he'll visit Colorado, Utah, Washington, Oregon, California, Arkansas, Mississippi and even make a stop in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The tour will conclude on April 14 in Chattanooga at the Memorial Auditorium's Walker Theatre which received upgrades earlier in the year.
Collateral will be Phillip Phillips' third album following 2014's Behind the Light. The new album is supported by singles "Miles" (Aug. 11) and "Magnetic" which was released Friday, Nov. 3. The latest single has been previewed since June 2016. Prior to recording Collateral, Phillips settled a lawsuit in which he claimed 19 Recordings producers were "oppressive." The upcoming album will continue to be released via 19 Recordings and Interscope.
Phillip Phillips is best known for his "American Idol" song "Home" which surpassed Kelly Clarkson's No. 1 hit "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" as the best-selling song from an "Idol" alumni, selling over 5.5 million copies in the U.S. It received mass promotion during the 2012 London Summer Olympic Games when the gold medal-winning U.S. Women's Gymnastics Team used the song to highlight their journey.
